Hairmyres Hospital receives Scotland's first cardiac Artis zee system from Siemens

Siemens Healthcare UK : 07 October, 2008  (Application Story)
Hairmyres Hospital in Lanarkshire, has installed Scotland’s first cardiac Artis zee units.
The floor mounted systems will be used for diagnostic procedures, coronary intervention and pacemaker insertions.

Hairmyres Hospital is NHS Lanarkshire’s only cardiac catheterisation centre and the Artis zee equipment forms part of two replacement, state-of-the-art cath labs. The innovative Axiom Sensis XP Haemodynamic recording systems with enhanced workflow have also been installed with the systems.

Radiographers and cardiologists are already benefitting from more efficient workflow and better patient throughput due to the image quality and easily manoeuvrable C-arm of the Artis zee. Clinicians are able to achieve comprehensive body coverage and image quality without increasing dose. The C-arm is controlled through a simple and logical user console, which provides a range of movement without limiting patient access.

Images can be automatically archived to the Cardiac PACS and then retrieved for image comparison. The Sensis XP automatically sends the haemodynamic data acquired in the cath lab to the Cardiac Data Management System, improving the efficiency of the department.

“This is an improved system with superb image quality, which has vastly improved patient throughput,” said Sara Riddell, superintendent radiographer at Hairmyres Hospital. “Application support during procedures has been invaluable, enabling a very streamlined and efficient workflow.”

“We are delighted that the first cardiac Artis zee has been installed in Scotland and are pleased that radiographers, cardiologists and their patients are already seeing the benefits,” said James Weir, territory manager at Siemens Healthcare. “The combination of an innovative imaging system and advanced workflow solution will speed up procedures and reporting, reducing patient waiting times and assisting in meeting healthcare targets.”
