- VISTA – Value Analysis (2/16/2018)
VISTA – heated stretcher pad has been identified by many Value Analysis reviews as the fastest ROI in healthcare. Remove the use of disposable hot air warming in Pre-Op or the high use of bath blankets. Financial reviews of both award VISTA the #1 ROI in perioperative services.
Bath blanket consumption per patient ranges from 6-14 blankets. Untold time is taken by nursing to exchange and gather bath blankets. End this craziness with VISTA, reduce bath blanket use to 3.
- FACIAL Transplants (2/16/2018)
Pressure reduction and warming were the goals when Johns Hopkins Medical Research Center, Baltimore, Maryland selected Pintler Medical’s PEAK pad as the patient care surface for FACIAL Transplants. This 24-hour procedure demands skin care for the patient as this amazing procedure is performed.
Supine patient warming with Pintler delivers vasal dilation and pressure redistribution delivered continually to prevent surgical acquired bed sores.
