DRE Medical Equipment Distributes Compact, Cost-Effective PC-Based ECG
April 09, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsDRE, Inc., a premier international medical and surgical equipment supplier, recently began distributing the Universal ECG™, a lightweight, cost-saving PC-based ECG device.
The FDA-approved Universal ECG portable PC-based ECG is the most compact and precise PC-based ECG on the market. It connects directly to most desktop PCs, laptops and Pocket PCs running Microsoft® Windows® XP or 2000 and performs resting ECG anytime, anywhere. EKG results are displayed on the computer screen for rapid assessment.
DRE distributes the Universal ECG at a price that is less expensive than most standalone EKG machines. The Universal ECG provides additional cost savings upon use: It allows physicians to print EKG reports on standard computer paper, reducing thermal paper costs by as much as $700 per year. The Universal ECG also requires no calibration or annual maintenance and it draws all power from the PC, eliminating battery costs.
The Universal ECG provides automatic measurement analysis and narrative interpretation using the sophisticated Louvaine Algorithm. According to a clinical study, the Louvaine Algorithm has the best total accuracy when compared with algorithms used by leading competitors. The study also found that the Louvaine Algorithm diagnoses Myocardial Infarction more accurately than competing algorithms.
DRE sells the Universal ECG with all components necessary for measuring 12-lead EKG data. It includes:
- Intuitive software for collecting, storing and analyzing data on a laptop, desktop PC or Pocket PC
- Free networking software that lets physicians collect data in more than one location and store results on a single database
- Software used to move data from one database to another
The Universal ECG is available from DRE in a 12-lead interpretive version and a six-lead non-interpretive version. It includes a three-year hardware warranty and the leads are covered by a one-year warranty. Additional product information can be viewed at www.dremed.com.
In addition to the Universal ECG, DRE sells a variety of new and refurbished surgical and medical equipment. DRE’s exclusive brand of equipment includes the DRE Waveline Plus Vital Signs Monitor, the DRE Integra AV-S Anesthesia Machine, and the DRE Maxx Luxx II Operating Room Lighting System.
