Committed to Critical Care
Expo Reinforces TRUMPF’s Unbroken Commitment to Critical Care
Attendees at the recent 2011 National Teaching Institute and Critical Care Exposition in Chicago not only had the opportunity for hands-on demonstrations of TRUMPF's latest technologies for the ICU/CCU, ED and Trauma environments, but also had the chance to hear first-hand from their peers on the advantages of TRUMPF's insight and solutions in unit planning and design.
“They are listening to us”
Visitors to the TRUMPF booth had ample hands-on time with TRUMPF's leading-edge solutions including TruPort, the world's most advanced modular, ceiling-mounted equipment management systems (aka booms). TruPort represents a flexible solution for ongoing customization and provides hospital staff with do-it-yourself convenience that allows them to optimize accessories, services and workflow, virtually on a case-by-case basis.
The TRUMPF TruLight, the latest in LED procedure lights and EasyTrans, the company's no-lift patient/equipment transport solution also garnered considerable response.
"You can see from their products and accessories that they are listening to us and that's what's important in a potential partner," said one attendee after viewing TRUMPF's offerings.
Peer presentations prove invaluable
"While seeing the products and having hands-on time on the exhibit floor is extremely helpful, the chance to hear directly from their peers that work with these technologies every day was invaluable," said TRUMPF Director of Marketing Steve Palmer as he looked back on the live, case studies presented throughout the three day expo.
The event theme - "All You Need is TRUMPF: It's Easy" - was echoed in each presentation. Debra Bradshaw from East Carolina Heart Institute discussed the CVICU perspective, explaining how from the planning and design process through implementation and daily use, her facility's partnership with TRUMPF has helped achieve their goal of becoming the region's leading cardiac care facility.
Lori Grade of Children's Hospital of Wisconsin hosted two discussions on the unique aspects of planning and design in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. TRUMPF's considerable experience with children's hospitals proved vitally important according to Grade.
TRUMPF Senior Project Engineer Jeff Saunders was also on hand to discuss TRUMPF's role in Neuro ICU planning and design, another area where TRUMPF has taken a leadership role.
A tradition of commitment
"TRUMPF has an unbroken commitment to critical care as evidenced by the technologies, accessories and case studies we presented at this, our 10th consecutive NTI," said Mike Bender, TRUMPF Vice President and Director, Critical Care Division. "Every day TRUMPF team members and technologies are at work helping to improve efficiency and the quality of care provided at leading facilities across the country: it's a track record we are proud of and one we are committed to continuing."
