Sylvan Fiberoptics MAXISCAN Fiberoptic Transilluminator

Sylvan Fiberoptics announces a new addition to its line of cold light fiberoptic transilluminators. The MAXISCAN has all the attributes of the PEDIASCAN units-portability with internal rechargeable batteries, reliable design, small size and weight, ease of use-but the MAXISCAN has approximately 40% more bright white light output. This enables the MAXISCAN to be used on larger-sized pediatric patients and adults. It is designed for use by emergency rooms, EMTs, doctors' offices, home healthcare nurses, IV teams, and anywhere IV insertion procedures take place. The MAXISCAN is the only unit available that has brilliant white light output without any dangerous heat buildup at the tip. The specialized light filtering system masks out ultraviolet and infrared emissions. In fact, the tip never gets above 101[degrees] F, so it can be left on the examination point as long as necessary to find a good IV site location. Portability enables the user to take the unit to the bedside or to carry it along on air or land transport. The small size and light weight are ideal for homecare and EMS use, but the MAXISCAN is powerful and rugged enough for daily usage. For more information, contact James G.
