New technology is allowing experts from around the world to care for patients in Dickson and the surrounding areas, and it can be done in only a matter of seconds. The program virtually delivers experts to a patient's bedside. With the portable equipment, experts from across the world can zoom in on the patient's features, check X-rays, ask questions and even conduct physical exams.
Found mostly in large hospitals, it is a treatment in which patients are cooled to near freezing. The technique is used to treat sudden cardiac arrest. It is believed that the freezing slows the metabolism— delaying brain damage that usually occurs with cardiac arrest—and speeds the healing process.
When ER doctors determine that a patient is too sick to be discharged but not sick enough to be admitted to the hospital, they are able to place the patient in observation status. After further testing, the patient may be admitted or discharged home.
An observation unit allows the ER physician to move the patient quickly to a unit designed to provide the level of care needed at that time. The observation unit enhances the flow of patients through the emergency department and frees up inpatient beds. It’s a more effective process for patients.
Electronic administration record (eMAR)
eMAR utilizes barcode technology on the patient's armband to identify them correctly. It also tells staff what drug and dose of every medication they have been given.
Digital mammography's advanced technology offers patient advantages that include decreasing the possibility of human error during interpretation and fewer return visits due to improved visibility of breast tissue.
