Anthracycline extravasation can be a debilitating and disfiguring condition.
Other uses of dexrazoxane: savene, the first proven antidote against anthracycline extravasation injuries.
According to the INS publication: "In September 2007, the FDA approved the first anthracycline extravasation treatment, Totect (dexrazoxane for injection), which has a 98% efficacy in diminishing tissue damage and allows the majority of patients to continue with scheduled chemotherapy.
In addition to ensuring the availability of Totect in the clinic, all nurses should be aware that it is critical to administer the antidote as soon as possible, and at least within six hours of the anthracycline extravasation," said Linda Person, RN, MSN, AOCN, Advanced Practice Nurse, Ambulatory, USC/Norris Cancer Hospital.
Although rare, CT contrast media extravasations are increasingly a concern because faster flow rate protocols may increase the severity of extravasation.
Employing RF wave technology and permittivity enables MEDRAD's new extravasation detector technology to minimize false positive detections.
EDA technology helps identify possible extravasations before they become clinically significant contributing to improved exam outcomes.
The Company has developed the only CT injector on the market that can help detect contrast extravasation, the EmpowerCT(TM) with patented EDA(TM) technology; it also offers a complete tool kit for the virtual colonoscopy practitioner.
The injector, its controller, and our Extravasation Detection Accessory(TM) (EDA(TM)) are all functionally separate, so new or upgraded modules can be swapped easily.
The PercuPump(R) EDA(TM) injector, the only CT injector that can help detect contrast media extravasation, ranked number one in Analyst Quality Ratings and received a score of 9.
To be rated above the major industry leaders in CT power injectors is a testimonial to the value the marketplace has put on the new extravasation technology built into our injectors.
