GE Healthcare unveils new anesthesia solutions in Vietnam

09:37 | 24/06/2016
GE Healthcare announced the launch of its new Carestation 600 Series, an affordable suite of anesthesia solutions, at the Vietnam Congress of Anaesthesiology 2016 in the central province of Binh Dinh’s Quy Nhon today.

The new suite of solutions is comprised of two machines – both of which balance user interface design with intelligent tools to help physicians prevent misuse and medical errors in the operating room.

Perioperative care is increasingly complex with more sick patients, requiring more tasks to accomplish at the same time and with the same resources in a highly regulated environment. In a fast-paced environment such as the operating room, rotating clinical staff need easy-to-use equipment so they can focus their time on patient treatment rather than operating machines.


“This is the first time we have such great integrated anesthesia solutions in Vietnam. It is good news for not only our anesthetists but also the patients. It helps control the anesthesia in the most effective way with a full range of indicators provided,” said Association Professor, PhD Cong Quyet Thang, chairman of the Vietnam Society of Anesthesiologists.


The new GE anesthesia machines intelligently package and connect monitoring devices, innovative parameters and advanced ventilation tools into a single, integrated system.  With these new machines, Vietnam is now offered modern technologies that help to improve anesthesia administration and perioperative care, resulting in safer surgeries.

The Carestation 600 Series recently received the ‘iF Design Award 2016’ for its excellence in product design from the iF International Design GmbH. The iF Design Award is one of the most celebrated and valued design competitions in the world receiving 5,000 submissions from 70 countries every year. 

“By creating a product that helps reduce the number of medical errors in the operating room, we are improving the standards of safe anesthesiology in the country, ultimately improving safe surgery,” said Nilesh Shah, general manager of Life Care Solutions for GE Healthcare Asia Pacific. “The Carestation 600 Series anesthesia machines help to address many market demands in the country – an anesthesia machine that is simple, smart and agile but also still reliable and cost-effective.” 


In order to focus more time on the patient, anesthesia technology must balance intuitive user interface design with software intelligence to deliver information that can help enhance patient care. The new machines combine second generation digital touchscreen technology with familiar tactile controls that are easy to operate. 


Owning to the smart alarms and notification system as well as all the protective and gas flow mechanisms, the new machines not only help ensure medical effectiveness but also avoid misuse and medical errors. Combined together in the machines, hardware and software options unite precision and speed with a sense of command and control to help improve patient care and enhance workflows.


In the operating room that keeps getting smaller, workspace optimization is critical. Designed with essential flexibility, the machines utilize cutting-edge technology and head-turning design in a compact and transport-friendly system that can move anywhere without any difficulties.
