Netcare 911 launches portable ultrasound

Some good news at this time of the year when sadly our emergency rooms are busy with road accidents, drunken fight victims and other violent incidents. Netcare 911 critical care teams and helicopters now have portable ultrasound devices on board. This can help with a diagnosis on the run, allowing the waiting medical teams at hospital to prepare for the patient when they are en route. We speakd to Charne van der Berg, Netcare 911’s Critical Care Operations Manager. #DStv403
