SIEMENS Healthineers SIEMENS Healthineers Uroskop Omnia Max Patient positioning Job Aid Uroshop Omnia Max Effective Date: 04 /05 /2019 HOOD05162003004436 Patient positioning Patient access and positioning One-time patient positioning Thanks to its curved X-ray column, Uroskop Omnia Max allows truly unrestricted patient access. As a result, the patient has to be positioned only once – regardless of the type of examination. The patient doesn’t even have to be repositioned during an intervention involving both sides of the body, e.g. during percutaneous interventions of both kidneys. The anesthetist always stays at the same place, too: at the head side of the table. The urologist and his assistant have free access to the patient from all sides of the table and the rest of the staff can move around freely at any moment of any procedure. No patient repositioning and standardized workflows translate into time savings and increased patient comfort. Making patients feel comfortable At the beginning of every examination, the patient has to be transferred onto the patient table and adjusted to the ideal working position. Uroskop Omnia Max offers two special buttons that can be individually configured for these two standard positions. Positioning patients on the examination table is simplified with the X-ray tube moved into parking position. Unrestricted patient access from all sides of the table 2 Patient positioning Patient access and positioning Moreover, the tube has an additional handgrip which patients can grab during positioning on the table. You can scan the entire urogenital tract by simply moving the X-ray system. It is not necessary to move the table or the patient. Even for percutaneous procedures, you don’t have to reposition the patient. For urodynamic examinations, patients are in a comfortable sitting position with their feet on the ground – as the seat height is individually adjustable. The optional MoodLight is based on LED technology and helps create a relaxing atmosphere – and to reduce the nervousness of patients. You can choose from different colors, set the individual color favorite for each patient or have the colors change in a smooth transition. Everything in view The spring-articulated swivel arm is highly flexible and allows completely free positioning of the two high-resolution TFT color displays – in any direction. That means urologists always have an optimal and unobstructed view on images from any working position. 3 Patient positioning Medical terms for patient positioning and treatment Anteroposterior (a.p.)
