ENT specialists set to share expertise at Transnasal Oesophagoscopy event

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

A one day course designed to showcase the latest in Transnasal Oesophagoscopy (TNO) technology has been announced by healthcare supplies firm, DP Medical Systems.

 

The interactive course is set to take place on Friday 10 February 2017 at QE Hospital in Birmingham and will see a faculty of experts deliver educational lectures on the technology and its application, before delivering an afternoon of live, hands-on skills station demonstrations for attendees.

 

The course faculty is made up of consultant head and neck surgeons Mriganka De, Yakubu Karagama – Consultant Otolaryngologist;  senior speech and language therapist Kate Young; consultant ENT surgeon Declan Costello; and George Garas SpR ENT – Head and Neck surgery.dptno

 

Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical Systems – hosts of the event, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming consultants, ENT SpRs and trainees to our Transnasal Oesophagoscopy Course in Birmingham in early 2017.

 

“The outpatient technology – which consists of a fibreoptic camera that is put up the nose into the throat and oesophagus – is quick and pain-free for patients, and is a great way of assessing those areas in just five minutes.

 

“Performed in the Outpatient Department, it can save hospitals money by early diagnosis of impending oesophageal problems, plus can often avoid the need to treat patients in the operating theatre with a full anaesthetic.

 

“Some patients are not fit enough for a general anaesthetic, so TNO is an alternative performed with a local, topical anaesthetic spray.

 

“We’ll be working with the faculty to deliver an informative and engaging course that shows how easy the procedure is, as well as providing hands-on experience.”

 

The course, which runs from 09:30am – 4:00pm and costs £150 for consultants or £100 for ENT SpRs and trainees, also counts towards six CPD credits.

Mediscan launches in France

DP Medical Company News Leave a comment

Cervical screening patients in France will now benefit from innovative new scanning equipment thanks to DP Medical Systems.

 

MediScan, a pioneering capture and archive system for gynaecological examinations, has recently been translated into French and Hopital Nord in Marseille is one of the first hospitals to have the system installed.

 

The technology is already in use across the UK and provides clinicians with a secure pathway for recording, storing and encrypting patient gynaecology examinations for analysis and archiving. The still images and video are captured in real-time and stored against the patient record for retrieval anywhere in the hospital.

 

The system, developed by DP Medical Systems, uses a simple to operate user interface, including touch screen technology and a question and answer based approach to data entry. Its digital still or video images are seen as benchmark quality by leading clinicians and have been used for illustration in medical texts.

 

Prof Xavier Carcopino from Hopital Nord and who will be using the Mediscan, said: “I first worked with the Mediscan technology during a year at Dublin’s Adelaide and Meath hospital and Coombe’s women’s hospital and was very impressed with it. It is a highly beneficial piece of equipment because it is designed to answer to the need of clinician and is very adaptable. Due to the storage capabilities, from images, videos and research to letters editing and patients illustration, Mediscan allows clinicians to get a real understanding of a patients current problem so we can decide how best to treat and manage them.

 

“I was very keen to use the system in France so I have been pleased to be part of the process of providing a French translation which has led to us having the equipment installed at Hopital Nord in Marseille which benefits around 100-150 patients per month. It has been good to work with DP Medical and I have been verymarseille1 happy with our collaboration to date.”

 

Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical Ltd, said: “It has been a pleasure to work with Prof Carcopino and all his team who have been instrumental in developing the French translation which means we can open up Mediscan to a whole new audience. We are delighted to see Medicscan fully up and running at Hopital Nord and we hope this will be one of many in France.

 

“The system provides gynaecology clinicians with a number of key benefits, including increased software security, improved patient experience through image sharing and a better platform for end-users to educate students and other clinical staff on complex colposcopy cases. We have developed MediScan with key opinion leaders and clinicians and it has now evolved into the essential workstation for every gynaecology practitioner.”

Earlier this month, the team from DP Medical headed to Medica – the world’s leading trade fair for the medical industry. In his latest blog, Owen Pemberton takes a look back at the event and discusses the range of innovative products on show. 
XION Medical's Matrix E-Spectar
Held annually in Dusseldorf, Germany, the Medica trade fair is one of the most prominent dates in the health industry calendar. 

More than 5,000 exhibitors from over 70 countries travel to the event to showcase their latest innovations. 

Held this year from 14-17 November, it was an impressive occasion, testimony to the 
exciting developments and groundbreaking work taking place across our industry at the moment. 

DP Medical Systems Ltd visited the event to support our valued suppliers, XION Medical and PROMOTAL – both of which were exhibiting at Medica 2016. 

In Hall 10, XION provided attendees with demonstrations of its pioneering medica-picendoscopic products including the EndoSURGERY Trolley, which features an uninterruptible power supply, and the Matrix E Spectar - an endoscopic camera capable of producing clean and crisp HD images with natural colour reproduction and homogenous illumination. 

And, in Hall 14, PROMOTAL showcased the latest advances in its Tweegy transfer chair – renowned as the ‘easiest and simplest transfer chair ever designed’, as well as its eMotio+ examination chair which now has additional features including an adjustable head rest, convertible arm and leg rests and gynaecological tilt. 
Attending events such as Medica and supporting the fantastic work of our suppliers is vital to us here at DP Medical.

Our customers know and value the products created by both XION Medical and PROMOTAL, and it was fantastic to see the great feedback both companies received from audiences at Medica 2016.

We look forward to working closely with both organisations over the coming months and years to help bring more of their products to market, helping healthcare providers to improve by investing in innovation.

Calling all owners of Global microscopes!

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

In our latest blog, Doug Pitman, managing director of DP Medical Systems, puts servicing under the microscope.  

 

“We have been selling the Global dental microscope for over 25 years now. During that time it has been adopted by hundreds of dentists as more and more of them realise the potential benefits this technology offers. It can be used across all areas of dentistry but in endodontics it is particularly essential to ensure accurate and predictable treatment.

 

“The Global microscope is designed for many years of constant use and, here at DP Medical Systems, we have come across hundreds of microscopes which have been in service for almost 20 years. This longevity is assured by regular servicing from our factory trained engineers and helped by Global’s lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects.

 

“As with any piece of equipment, performance to specification is vital for effective use. A robust care, maintenance and service programme covers all functions, testing and cleaning and ensures optimum performance whilst avoiding any unpredictable down time.

 

“Global microscopes are fully upgradeable and a constant programme of R&D means new improved accessories and components are available. All units can be updated to the latest specification such as original light systems can be upgraded to the new high intensity LED lights which is of real benefit.

 

“A regular service, either by contract with regular visits or as and when required, enables our engineers to advise of these upgrade options and recommend accordingly. It’s a small investment to make to ensure peak performance.”

 

DP Medical Systems, the exclusive distributor of Global Microscopy products in the UK and Ireland, is currently offering 10% off* the cost of all new service contracts and service visits booked on all Global microscopes before 30th September 2016.
