Mindray in Action to Combat COVID-19

2020-02-24
The newly-emerged epidemic pneumonia caused by a new type of coronavirus (COVID-19) has become the biggest concern in China and the very focus of public attention around the world. As a company with the mission to “advance medical technologies to make healthcare more accessible”, Mindray has immediately responded with multiple actions.

Mindray has donated a total amount of about 1.57 million USD’s worth of medical devices to Wuhan Huoshenshan Hospital and Leishenshan Hospital, two make-shift hospitals for the treatment of novel coronavirus patients. From Jan 25 to Feb 6, Mindray completed the installation of over 3,000 units of devices against time as Huoshenshan and Leishenshan completed the construction on Feb 2 and Feb 6 respectively. 

The demand for quality medical devices also staggeringly soared across the whole nation. As the leading provider of medical devices and solutions in China, Mindray has allocated resources efficiently and spared no efforts to ensure the timely supply of devices urgently needed. Till Feb 17, Mindray has delivered over 35,000 units of medical devices to help nationwide hospitals and caregivers to combat the novel coronavirus.

Frontline: Quick Response in the Shortest Possible Time

At the very early stage of the epidemic outbreak, Mindray Wuhan Subsidiary proactively arranged over 200 service engineers to check the status of over 20,000 Mindray devices installed across Hubei Province. An emergency plan was also carried out to ensure the supply to regions badly affected by COVID-19 in Hubei.

And when the construction of Huoshenshan Hospital just started, colleagues from sales, marketing and customer service departments in Mindray Wuhan Subsidiary made coordinated efforts, round the clock, to put together a total solution for the whole hospital. After obtaining the approval by the hospital, Mindray quickly established a front-line team with more than 100 members, including Mindray customer service engineers, clinical application training engineers and engineers from distributors. They were divided into the groups of professional installation, trainings and logistics support to start work on the configuration, logistics and installation.

The customer service team performed lean management, by allocating the responsibility of transportation, installation and after-service to the corresponding group leaders. Though the construction site was very crowded with all kinds of people involved in the Huoshenshan Hospital’s construction, thanks to a meticulous plan, Mindray team worked in an orderly and coordinated manner. What’s more, since time was extremely tight, Mindray team members worked in shifts, with no less than 50 engineers in each shift, to keep the installation on the go and, eventually to finish all the tasks in time.

Smart cardiopulmonary assessment solution: ultrasound assists in the diagnosis of severe pneumonia
● Facing ARDS, ultrasound’s lung exam mode helps clinicians to make rapid and precise diagnosis. Following up on that, Mindray’s Smart B-line on our newly launched TE7 ACE automatically calculates B-lines number, percentage, and distance which provides a comprehensive lung evaluation for clinicians to understand the progression of the disease and assess the pulmonary function.
● Facing septic shock, ultrasound helps to quickly assess patients’ volume responsiveness and status:
    ➢The Smart IVC on TE7 ACE automatically traces the IVC diameter change, and calculates the Collapsibility Index or Distensibility Index and IVC Variation, helps for volume status and responsiveness.
    ➢The Smart VTI on TE7 ACE automatically calculates the Velocity Time Integral, Cardiac Output and Stroke Volume Variation which helps to prevent hypoperfusion or tissue edema caused by insufficient or excessive circulating blood volume.
