What equipment and supplies are needed to use the golden standard technical device for Abdominal Aorta Aneurysm Screening ?

Authors: Daniela Pertl, Sophie Brunner-Ziegler

Internal reviewers: Pseudo110 Pseudo110, Pseudo71 Pseudo71

Examinations can be performed at the bedside. As the investigation has to be performed with the patient in a supine position, application of the technology requires an examination couch, if possible, adjustable for height. To use the technology the only necessary disposable item is a water-based conducting gel to facilitate the transmission of the sound waves. As the technology is non-invasive, neither needles, nor bandages or medicines are necessary. The use of paper towels may be helpful to remove conducting gel from the skin after the investigation. {34}

Question refers partly to RC-TEC10, RC-ECO1, RC-ECO2 and RC-ORG4.
