Situate™ Detection System X

Product Details

The Situate™ detection system X accurately and reliably detects tagged sponges with 100% sensitivity and specificity.([FOOTNOTE=Williams TL, Tung DK, Steelman VM, Chang PK, Szekendi MK. Retained Surgical Sponges: Findings from Incident Reports and a Cost-Benefit Analysis of Radiofrequency Technology. Journal of the American College of Surgeons (2014), doi: 10.1016/ j.jamcollsurg.2014.03.052.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) And it does so in less time than manual counts.([FOOTNOTE=Rupp et al. Effectiveness of a Radiofrequency detection System as an adjunct to manual counting protocols for tracking surgical sponges: a prospective trial of 2,295 patients. UNC. J Am Coll Surg. 2014.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

The system is comprised of 4 components including an automated body scanner, console, tagged cotton, and room scanner.

Together, they detect missing and retained tagged sponges up to 16 inches away in vivo, in the presence of fat, dense tissue, blood, bone, and near metal. And the system seamlessly integrates into existing OR processes.

The console and user interface provide on-screen prompts that guide workflow, and generate unique confirmation codes of each scan for convenient EMR entry — during the procedure. This allows OR staff to reconcile any inaccuracies before the case is closed.

In fact, a survey of 2,285 clinicians who used the Situate™ detection system revealed:2

  • 99.5% agree it doesn’t interrupt closing procedures
  • 97% agree it’s easy to use
  • 95% agree it improved confidence in the final count
  • 83% agree it improved time to resolve count discrepancy

Overview

Detect missing sponges in seconds

Retained surgical sponges are a costly problem for patients and hospitals. And manual counts are time-consuming and inaccurate if done alone.

The Situate™ detection system is an adjunct technology to the manual count, and solves this problem with technology that accurately and reliably detects missing tagged sponges in seconds1 — whether they’re in a patient or the OR.

Compared to only manual counts, when a miscount occurs, our system:

  • Lessens patient exposure to anesthesia([FOOTNOTE=Stone et al, Am J Infect Control, 2005.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Decreases the risk of infection3 
  • Shortens procedure time3 
  • Reduces X-ray dependency([FOOTNOTE=Steelman VM. Sensitivity of detection of radiofrequency surgical sponges: a prospective, cross-over study. The American Journal of Surgery 2011;201:233–237.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

Detection You Can Trust. Backed by a Promise.
