North American Rescue – Clarius Wireless Ultrasound Scanner

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Of all of the items I saw at last week’s Marine South Expo at Camp Lejeune, NC, the visit to North American Rescue impressed me most. They shared the Clarius Wireless Premium Ultrasound Scanners with me, which bring ultrasound imaging to austere environments.

They had two models, the C3 which is for use in Convex applications and the L7 which is for Linear applications. The devices are wireless and connect to handheld Andriod and iOS devices via Bluetooth. There are apps for either OS and their use is quite intuitive. Additionally, you can share the images live, with other handheld devices within range, making this a good option for teaching scenarios. Naturally, the battery operated Clarissa can also be used in remote/forward areas thanks to its sealed magnesium shell that is both durable and waterproof up to 30 minutes at 1meter immersion depth.

First, the technician selects the device.

Next, the technician chooses what will be imaged.

Specs:
-High-quality resolution without any wires
-Convex or Linear Probe operates at 2-6 MHz for 3-30cm depth
-Operates on virtually any Smart device operating on iOS or Android platforms
-Superior materials and construction making it lightweight, rugged and waterproof for up to 30 minutes at 1m immersion
-Automated settings (gain and frequency) make usage effortless
-Designed to scan all parts of a patient’s torso, including the heart

“Metal Fever” by Jim Schatz

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

A horrible scourge is stealing the health from many of my friends, and taking the lives of still others. Heavy metal poisoning is an affliction we are just beginning to comprehend. It almost sounds like some quaint illness from the 19th century but its effects are manifesting themselves in members of the profession of arms. So far, the SOF community has been at the forefront of identifying it but as this briefing by Jim Schatz shows, so many more have been exposed to heavy metals.

Jim Schatz left us with a great deal of information on small arms, but this briefing on the effects of heavy metal poisoning, presented to the NDIA Joint Armaments Forum in 2014, is one we should all review. Just take a look at the symptoms. They are easy to rationalize as another illness, or “just getting old”. As you’ll learn in this briefing, exposure is much simpler than spending lots of time in a shoothouse. I’ll go one step further than this briefing and remind those who’ve deployed that exposure to industrial waste is more likely in locales that lack effective means of disposal.

Please, take a few minutes to go over this briefing. Many of our breathren are suffering from the effects of heavy metal poisoning. One of them could be you.

Thanks to the SOF Health Initiatives Program for sharing this briefing with us.
