The Emergency Department at Rush Oak Park Hospital is equipped with advanced emergency medicine testing and treatment technology. Here are some examples:
- Telestroke robot: Enables Rush University Medical Center stroke neurologists to immediately review imaging scans of possible stroke patients remotely – resulting in quicker stroke diagnoses, saving brain function and lives.
- Sonosite ultrasound: Reduces complications associated with the placement of central lines, catheters used by physicians to give medicine, fluid, nutrients or blood products.
- GlideScope video laryngoscope: Provides consistently clear airway views for quicker intubation, the insertion of breathing tubes into the windpipe via the mouth.
