Another successful installation – a new sciascopic-sciagraphic device in the Vsetín Hospital

We have the pleasure to inform you that our Medical Technology Division has completed the installation of a sciascopic-skiagraphic device at the Radio diagnostic department at the Vsetín Hospital.

This unique reclining wall- Opera SWING from the Italian manufacturer General Medical Merate S.P.A. is so versatile that it can serve both for sciascopic and sciagraphic examinations. Apart from other unique features this device excels in its special design and great variability of fully automatic movements.

We believe that the device will serve well to both the patients and the staff and thus contribute to the smooth running of the whole department.

On November 21, 2019 PROMEDICA INSTITUT s.r.o. in cooperation with the Consumable Medical Supplies Division of the PROMEDICA PRAHA GROUP, a.s., organised in the Hotel D1 the 3rd run of the seminar wellbeing for healthcare professionals „Care brings results“ with the topics: interpersonal relationships and “conscious food”.

The lecturer program was prepared and led by Ing. Romana Tichá. Interactive lectures (about how relationships are formed, how they develop, get to know yourself, work with emotions, productive relationships in the workplace, conscious food – how and with whom to eat, how food affects us and what we actually solve with the food) were in the afternoon replaced by the workshop in Flower binding.

The seminar was included in the lifelong education of non-medical healthcare staff.

We were very pleased with the abundant participation and the immediate positive response from the participants of the seminar.

International summit EACTS

From 7th to 9th November 2019 our division participated in the international summit organized by the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, focused on mechanical heart support. This important summit took place for the first time in the Czech Republic and was held at the Hilton Old Town Hotel in Prague.

Our division presented short-term micro axillary intracardiac catheter cardiac support Impella in versions 5.0, CP and RP, as well as long-term mechanical cardiac support – JARVIK 2000.

In cooperation with JARVIK, the heart support manufacturer, we also introduced the unique concept of wireless recharge of long-term mechanical heart support JARVIK 2000, the only one in the world presented by JARVIK in cooperation with Leviticus.

It is a fully implantable mechanical heart support, which has its own battery implanted in the patient’s body and is recharged wirelessly using a “special vest – belt” that the patient will wear when needed. Once the battery is charged, the patient no longer needs to carry any components other than the watch that monitors the battery and cardiac support status.

During the summit there were also several meetings held, namely with Abiomed and JARVIK.

This international summit was a great success and the products we exhibited were of great interest to doctors as well as to representatives of various companies.
