Supply-Chain collaboration saves time & money: CME and Ketchikan Medical Center

By CME on Dec 12, 2017 7:00:00 AM

Time is money, especially if you are launching, renovating or expanding a healthcare facility. Consider this, a delayed opening typically costs a hospital $400,000-$500,000 in anticipated revenues per day. Delays at larger clinics can cost $125,000 in revenue per day. With these startling facts in mind, it becomes apparent that proper planning, distribution and logistics are critical investments for success. The solution is collaboration.

By building collaborative partnerships, CME is able to provide turnkey logistics services to healthcare facilities across the nation that save time and money.

By CME on Dec 7, 2017 7:00:00 AM

DETECTO’s SONARIS stadiometer can measure virtually anyone’s height without any restrictions that normal stadiometers are bound by.

Whether the patient is a tiny child or a giant adult, SONARIS will measure their height, regardless of size, covering a greater height range than any conventional height measuring instruments.

ZOLL REAL CPR HELP, INCREASING THE ODDS FOR SURVIVAL

By CME on Nov 30, 2017 7:00:00 AM

CPR Saves Lives. That’s why more than 30 states now require students to receive CPR training before they graduate from high school. Many of these states also require that students be trained to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

CPR + AED = even more lives saved.

The evidence is indisputable: high-quality CPR is the primary component in influencing survival from cardiac arrest.1 Not every patient will need a defibrillating shock, but every patient will need CPR to increase the flow of oxygenated blood to the heart and brain. More lives saved.

Even for seasoned health care professionals, it’s hard to know if you are pushing hard enough and fast enough to meet current AHA Guidelines for compression rate and depth. With ZOLL'S proprietary Real CPR Help technology, you know. It provides audio and visual feedback that guides rescuers to deliver high-quality CPR. ZOLL introduced Real CPR Help® in 2002, and it is standard on every AED and professional defibrillator ZOLL sells.
