Enhancing patients’ care path with focused cardiac ultrasound

Philips Lumify can play an important role for cardiac patients

Immediate access to high quality ultrasound has the potential to enhance care of the cardiology patient in many settings, we call this smart triage. For example in the private office, when admitting a new patient, the cardiologist can use Lumify to decide if a comprehensive echo exam needs to be scheduled immediately or if it can be scheduled later.

 

In the follow-up of patients with known cardiology disease or after cardiac surgery, a focused echocardiography exam at the bed side using Lumify helps answer important clinical questions that can’t be answered with the traditional physical exam alone. 

 

The use of Lumify in the peri-operative setting can help the clinician better manage unstable patients using focused cardiac ultrasound to identify and monitor left ventricular and valvular dysfunction.
