Henry Schein Medical Announces Exclusive Distribution Agreement With Terason® For Ultrasound Device

Press Release Oct 17, 2017

MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Henry Schein Medical today announced that its Emergency Medical Services (EMS) business has entered an exclusive agreement with Terason® to distribute uSmart® 3200T NexGen, a portable ultrasound device that enables emergency responders to perform exams in emergency medical transport vehicles and aircrafts. By using uSmart® 3200T, responders can identify issues at the point-of-care, continue assessment during transport, and alert emergency room staff of relevant vitals. Access to a patient's vitals will further empower emergency responders to make more informed decisions on treatment and the trauma center most suited to care for a patient's needs, as well as help prepare emergency room staff prior to a patient's arrival.

According to an article published in International Journal of Emergency Medicine, entitled, "Use of Ultrasound by Emergency Medical Services: a Review," the use of portable ultrasounds in the pre-hospital setting is increasing with reports of physicians, emergency medical technicians, and flight nurses performing diagnostic and therapeutic interventions in different EMS systems across Europe and the United States. This is facilitated by the portability of modern ultrasound machines that have small, lightweight, and durable designs and that deliver high-quality and high-resolution imaging. 

"As we continue to invest in technology that can help advance the EMS industry for the benefit of providers, and ultimately patients, Henry Schein is excited to partner with Terason to distribute the uSmart® 3200T," said Andy Goldy, General Manager, Emergency Medical Services, Henry Schein Medical. "Our customers can continue to rely on us to offer technologically-advanced devices, such as the portable ultrasound, to help uncover and treat life-threatening conditions that may otherwise go unnoticed, and to help triage traumatic situations that require quick decision-making and treatment."

uSmart® 3200T NexGen is a portable ultrasound tablet that weighs less than five pounds, which makes it easy to transport and operate. It features proprietary SuperHarmonic™ Imaging capabilities with fast processing speeds and an intuitive touchscreen design that makes operation quick and efficient. The Terason uSmart® 3200T offers customized presets, fast boot-up, grab-and-go portability, and Wi-Fi capabilities. In addition, the long battery life and remote connectivity enables communication with the receiving facility for better patient care.

"Terason and Henry Schein's partnership further solidifies our commitment to the pre-hospital market," said Jeff Sirek, General Manager, Terason. "By combining our cutting-edge technology with Henry Schein's commercial expertise in bringing innovative products to market, we can deliver solutions that help reduce the guesswork among EMS professionals who have to quickly assess patient needs."
