Overview

Proven clinical excellence. Productivity-enhancing applications and features. Expanded networking options. The CASE Exercise Testing System puts the stress on performance.

With industry-leading algorithms, the CASE system enables you to quickly and easily assess cardiac function during exercise for greater diagnostic confidence. 

Connect your CASE system to a Local Area Network (LAN), and you can store patient data and test results to a central database. This enables physicians to review, edit and print data remotely, for maximum efficiency in your stress lab.

CASE enables you to optimize your digital workflow, too, with seamless connectivity to EMR, PACS, and the MUSE* Cardiology Information System. Whether you use a standalone system, a group of workstations or a complete enterprise solution, we have the scalable solution that fits your needs today and tomorrow.

The stand-alone, highly scalable exercise testing solution:

  • Is backed by proven algorithms that enable more confident diagnoses
  • Can meet the performance and productivity requirements of virtually any size facility
  • Streamlines workflow with seamless connectivity to EMR, PACS, and the MUSE Cardiology Information System to help speed patient care, increase staff productivity and improve business results
  • Connects to a Local Area Network (LAN) so physicians can review, edit and print data remotely for maximum efficiency in the stress lab

Analysis Programs

The CASE system enables clinical excellence with outstanding data quality and accuracy in an easy-to-use system.

Available analysis programs include:

  • Exercise Test Interpretation (XTI) statements highlight critical values in stress testing for advanced analysis of risk prediction, functional response and ischemia. This unique algorithm provides clinicians with additional insights to make better treatment decisions
  • The new ST/HR hysteresis analysis feature enables increased accuracy1 in detecting coronary artery disease in women and adds confidence in identifying the most appropriate treatment
  • With the seamless integration of SunTech** Tango+**, blood pressure and SpO2 are automatically recorded in the CASE system during a patient’s stress test
  • Full-disclosure data enables review and re-analysis of every beat and arrhythmia for enhanced clinical confidence
  • The proven Marquette* 12SL* ECG analysis and 15-lead stress testing are available for increased result accuracy, for confident clinical decisions
  • Risk-predicting algorithms, including Duke Treadmill Score, the patented T-wave Alternans (TWA) and Heart Rate Recovery, assist you in predicting patients at risk of sudden cardiac death
  • CASE supports data quality with algorithms that support the clearest, most accurate test results, such as cubic spline correction and Finite Residual Filtering (FRF)

Networking

Whether you need one CASE system or one dozen, this highly scalable solution can meet the performance and productivity requirements of virtually any facility.

  • Single, network or Enterprise options: Whatever the size of your facility, the CASE system can be configured to maximize productivity and simplify workflow based on your facility’s IT and clinical needs
  • CASE networking: Connect your CASE system to a LAN for connectivity solutions that improve productivity. Add CS client software to a PC to create a remote workstation for viewing, editing and printing stress data — reserving your CASE system for testing
  • Open system architecture: GE Healthcare uses industry standard communication protocols, including HL7**, DICOM, XML and TCP/IP
  • Bi-directional data exchange: The DICOM Modality Worklist supports bi-directional data exchange and simultaneous review of imaging and ECG data, to improve dual modality procedure efficiency
  • Data accessibility: The Web view feature allows Internet access to procedure reports from anywhere, with access privileges controlled by your IT department for data security
  • Easily connected: The CASE system is easily connected to PC client workstations to increase efficiency in report editing and confirmation. Client workstations can be added as your needs grow to support access to multiple CASE systems
  • Security and compliance: The CASE system protects your data and system with multi-level password login configurations
  • Export flexibility: Send data easily by exporting via PDF, Microsoft** Word, Excel or XML. The PDF file name can be automatically generated based on patient demographic data, ensuring an accurate match to patient EMR or HIS files
  • Support services: GE Healthcare technical support experts are ready to provide installation, system configuration, HL7 integration, upgrade services and remote support, including 24/7 availability

Treadmill

The T-2100 Treadmill from GE Healthcare is designed with a focus on patient safety.

It offers:

  • An extra long 60-inch surface
  • Full front and side handrails
  • A zero start feature that gradually builds up speed for safe and smooth operation
  • The ability to be brought to a gradual stop, or stopped immediately with the standard emergency stop button.

With fewer moving parts than other treadmills, the T-2100 treadmill delivers extremely smooth, quiet operation that facilitates accurate blood pressure measurements even at high workloads.

Thanks to digital microprocessor control, its settings never need to be calibrated. And a 450-pound weight capacity and speed range of 0-13.5 miles per hour set the T-2100 treadmill apart from other devices.

eBike Ergometer

GE Healthcare ergometry equipment is being expanded with the adaptable and high-performance eBike series of bicycle ergometers.

eBikes are rounds-per-minute, independent bicycle ergometers for load ranges between 6 and 999 watts. The robust mechanical construction ensures reliable function even when in constant use. The ergonomic design offers a seating position that is optimal for almost all body sizes, and allows for easy mounting and dismounting, even for those with restricted movement—especially those who cannot use a treadmill.

The connection between GE Healthcare stress-testing systems and eBike allows for easy control of the entire examination. eBike is available in two versions—eBike basic and eBike comfort—with different characteristic features.


eBike Basic Ergometer features include:

  • Revolutions per minute-independent load
  • Load accuracy according to DIN VDE 0750-0238
  • Continuously variable seat height adjustment
  • Handlebar adjustment
  • Digital and analog interfaces to GE Healthcare stress-testing systems


eBike Comfort Ergometer features include:

  • Rounds per minute-independent load
  • Load accuracy according to DIN VDE 0750-0238
  • Electrical, non-graduated seat height adjustment
  • Digital display of saddle height
  • Dual handlebar adjustment (height and angle)
  • Multiple expansion options
  • Digital and analog interfaces to ECGs and PC-ECGs
