PRODUCT NEWS The Zoll Non-invasive Temporary Pacemaker (NTP) is designed for immediate use as an alternative to endocardial electrode catheterization for emergency cardiac stimulation to generate, accelerate or maintain ventricular rhythm. It is also suitable for stand-by use on patients who are at risk for arrhythmia or abnormal conduction. The Zoll NTP is a compact, self-contained unit consisting of a demand pulse generator, a twin channel ECG monitor, strip-chart recorder and inte- gral batteries. It can be used for patients needing immediate cardiac pacing in Accident and Emergency Departments and Coronary Care Units and can be set up without the need for specialist technical support. Ohmeda has just launched its latest anaesthesia venti- lator, the OAV 7700. It has been designed to meet the needs of longer term ventilation and emergency cases requiring more sophisticated ventilation support. With the use of a microprocessor the unit offers clear and reliable monitoring through a LED display and a range of in-built alarms, it also has a full range of ventilation modes. Other features include ‘safe start’ , built in adjustable peep, one piece fully autoclavable patient circuit, inspiratory pause control and ‘one touch’ switch from auto to manual ventilation. 4.5

46 INTENSIVE CARE NURSING

A new Leisegang colposcope is available which employs an extremely intense halogen ‘cold light’ source trans- mitted via a fibre optic light guide and is designed primarily for routine examinations of the cervix and vagina. The cold light source ensures good resolution of the clinical features under examination and the Leise- gang colposcope enables physiologically natural view- ing through converging optics. Features include accu- rate focussing and height adjustment, variable light intensity and a ‘boost’ facility to increase illumination for short periods. Three levels of magnification can be selected instantly without the need for changing eye pieces. The Coldlight Colposcope incorporates a green filter for clear identification of blood vessels, it can be interfaced with most surgical laser systems and is easily adapted for colpophotography.

Macarthys Surgical Ltd has introduced the Mac- Scrub, single use sterile surgical brush which aims to combat skin damage often caused by repeated scrub- bing with hard bristle brushes. It combines soft polyth- ene bristles with a sponge back and each brush is individually sterile packed in a dispenser. As a single use product it also reduces the risk of infection.

The Diascope 2 incorporates EGG and temperature monitoring with a non-invasive blood-pressure moni- tor. The compact, self-contained unit has a twin- channel ECG Monitor, integral batteries and an annotating recorder. The blood pressure can be mea-

These facilitate a seal with minimum area of tracheal contact. The tubes are manufactured in clear, kink-resistant PVC with an atraumatic tip.
