UT Medical Center
The University of Toledo Medical Center recently unveiled its new technologically-advanced cardiac catheterization laboratories. The new areas feature enhanced work spaces and the most innovative, high-resolution digital imaging technology available for cardiac catheterization procedures. The cardiology team at UT once again turned to Torrence Sound of Perrysburg, Ohio a long standing technology partner of the Medical Center, to design and install an innovative state of the art communication system specifically for cath and cardiac procedure labs.
The Torrence cath lab intercom is a non-RF wireless system that provides extraordinary gain and audio quality, discreet closed communication channels, full duplex audio that does not require the cardiologist to wear or even touch any communications equipment yet allows as many staff members as desired to communicate with him. Lab staff have commented that “the audio is so clear we can even hear when whispers in the procedure room”.
In addition the labs feature the newest technology which includes flat screen, high-resolution monitors, ergonomically designed, ceiling mounted C-arm x-ray, and multi-leveled access to diagnostic information. Staff in a fully-monitored “control room” manages patient data and images during the procedures. There is also a private consultation room where physicians and patients can meet before or after procedures to view results and images on a computer.
