IOL International with no connections or layovers. Each of our 4 stretcher chairs here at SightTrust Eye Institute Surgery Center in Sunrise, Fla., is a self-contained unit. To the chair's IV poles we strap monitors and baskets that hold the patient's charts. When you can move patients from their pre-op bay to the OR to recovery without transfers and without hooking up and unhooking monitors over and over, you'll save time, reduce the risk of falls and protect your staff from lifting injuries. From admission to discharge It's a stretcher ... It's a table ... It's a recliner ... It's a stretcher chair! Stretcher chairs are the Swiss Army knives of surgery. With the push of a button on a motorized model with remote-control operation, you can raise, lower and tilt the chair's back, legs and height, taking patients from supine to upright and every sitting and lying position in between, even Trendelenburg. Gone is the need for your surgeons to adjust table height, and for your staff to lift and transfer patients to a different surface. We've pro- grammed our fleet of 4 chairs to the exact height needed, per station, throughout our 2-OR suite: positions for pre-op, transport, surgery and post-op. Staff simply push a button for programmed position 1, 2, 3 or 4, and then hang the remote on a hook on the chair's arm rest. • 1 puts the chair into a semi Fowler's position to administer drops and let patients dilate in comfort. • 2 puts patients into the physician-desired height for bladeless cataract treatments in OR 1. • 3 positions patients for phaco in OR 2. • 4 returns patients to semi Fowler's, the proper position for recov- ery and transfer to PACU. Staff know which programmable button to hit as they're wheeling J U N E 2 0 1 9 • O U T PA T I E N T S U R G E R Y. N E T • 3 7
