WHY ULTRASOUND GEL AND PROBE COVER QUALITY ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOU THINK
Why Ultrasound Gel And Probe Cover Quality Are More Important Than You Think
Behind – or rather, underneath – every ultrasound is ultrasound gel. Easily overlooked or taken for granted, much like ultrasound probe covers, ultrasound gel is a crucial ingredient for ultrasound appointments: without it, a clear image cannot be produced.
It is critical that the ultrasound gels and probe covers used on your patients are of the highest quality, because even these smallest of details can have a significant impact. Lower quality gels, for example, have been known to cause skin issues on patients, such as contact dermatitis. High-quality ultrasound gels such as Ecoutragel, on the other hand, are not cytotoxic (toxic to cells), greasy or irritating to the skin, and also guarantee a smoother treatment with a faultless acoustic transmission. Unlike some other ultrasound gels, the Ecoutragel is also salt-free, which prevents chemical degradation of the transducer.
A high-quality probe cover, such as those in the PullUp Probe Cover Kit, provides a physical barrier between the probe and patient to prevent cross contamination, and can protect expensive ultrasound transducers from damage.
But the PullUp Probe Cover Kit takes the effectiveness of probe covers a step further. Because it does not require assembly during the procedure, it can increase clinical efficiency. The cover also minimises clean-up requirements because it is designed in such a way that gel only needs to be added where necessary. This ensures practitioners are spending less time fussing over their machinery and more time focused on delivering patients the best results.
