Handheld Ultrasound Becomes the 'Third Pair of Eyes' for Doctors as COVID-19 Rages around the World

When the epidemic was raging, the large-scale outbreak of infectious disease changed the original working environment of doctors, and the initial diagnosis method exposed the doctors who had close contact with patients to the virus, especially a large number of non-first-line departments which do not have the awareness of protection. This is the reason for the higher infection rate among medical staff in other non-infectious departments. During the peak of the epidemic, medical staff wearing protective clothing are also facing a closed and dangerous working environment. They need diagnostic equipment that is more suitable for special scenarios.

The handheld ultrasound device, a young product with its flexibility, played a major role in emergency treatment in the fight against the epidemic. Putting it in the pocket, doctors can deal with various emergencies with it. This equipment has played its unique advantages in the diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19.

First of all, a handheld wireless ultrasound probe can be used to screen the disease, simply determine the cause of the patient's symptoms, and quickly provide doctors with more in-depth information in the emergency department.

In the dynamic detection of patients and the management of critically ill patients, since the COVID-19 will infect important organs such as the heart, liver, and kidney, doctors can use handheld ultrasound to screen patients for other functional organs anytime and anywhere. For critically ill patients, ultrasound can assist in judgment, and lung ultrasound can achieve the dynamic continuous assessment, dynamic monitoring of disease evolution, and evaluation of treatment effects.

Especially in isolation wards and emergency departments under limited conditions, handheld ultrasound is easier to sterilize, which plays an important role in disease diagnosis, assessment and dynamic assessment of patients.

In fact, it is not easy for companies to deliver handheld ultrasound products to doctors, as they need to overcome traffic shutdowns and urban isolation. There are only a few days or even a few hours for companies to meet the needs of special application scenarios, enabling many non-ultrasound doctors in Wuhan to use ultrasound.

However, from another perspective, the epidemic will further widen the gap in the development of medical AI companies. Their approaches toward these problems reflect their capabilities of R&D, execution and organization.
