NEW DALE TRANSDUCER HOLDER ALLOWS TROUBLE-FREE MONITORING.
The new Dale(R) Transducer transducer, device that accepts an input of energy in one form and produces an output of energy in some other form, with a known, fixed relationship between the input and output. Holder allows for closer approximation to the phlebostatic axis thereby reducing the likelihood of errors associated with improper leveling.
The transducer holder secures up to three transducers on the patient's arm, in line with the phlebostatic axis. It stays with the patient during transport, reducing the need for re-zeroing and re-leveling.
The Dale Transducer Holder replaces other securement methods, such as tape on the upper arm or bracketing to an I.V. pole. It is designed for use during hemodynamic monitoring hemodynamic monitoring Clinical medicine A general term for the ongoing evaluation of hemodynamics with an arterial line arterial line
