GE Healthcare, a business unit of General Electric (NYSE:GE), has shared some of its latest updates in mechanical ventilation, patient monitoring, diagnostic cardiology and ultrasound technology for critical care at the “Challenges and Strategies for Critical Care Medicine in Vietnam” workshop in Danang in late April.1

Organised by the Vietnam National Association of Emergency, Intensive Care Medicine and Clinical Toxicology, the event was attended by over 400 doctors of critical care, emergency care and medical toxicology from across the country. It offered a platform for participants to discuss and update new medical topics in the field of critical care.

Prof. Daniel DeBacker, Erasme hospital, Belgium, president of European Society of Intensive Care Medicine and Prof. Christopher Farmer, the US’ Mayo Clinic, president of Society of Critical Care Medicine were also invited to share knowledge about new developments in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) technology across the world and to demonstrate how the new ICU equipment can be invaluable in treating emergencies.

During the event, GE introduced its major Life Care Solution products as well as some ultrasound equipment. One product in particular, the Engström Carestation, caught the eye.

“GE would like to share the capabilities of our advanced ventilator, Engstrom Carestation, which has a number of unique features to help doctors ventilate patients safely and effectively. Especially relevant for sufferers of serious respiratory diseases, EngstromCarestation is equipped with a special tool, which measures FRC (Functional residual capacity) to provide clinicians with the necessary information to optimise PEEP (Positive End Expiratory Pressure), Tidal Volume… to perform lung protective ventilation strategy,” said Tran Anh Tuan, country manager of GE Healthcare in Vietnam.
