Emergency Medicine, Urgent Care, Family Medicine & Surgical Clinic Use
Ring Rescue was conceived by Emergency Department Physicians, and Ring Rescue is at home in the hands of ED Physicians, Nurses, Paramedics, and other EMS providers. We know first-hand what makes your job easier.
We designed this device to be efficient and practical. Improve flow, decrease length of stay, and increase patient satisfaction through non-invasive, and non-destructive solutions. Even consider applying Ring Rescue at triage, and have the problem solved before the patient even enters the ED.
Time is a valuable commodity, patient flow is ever important, and tools that make this job easier and more efficient can be priceless.
Finger Rings stuck in the context of finger swelling represent a common presenting complaint in North American Emergency Departments.
Many materials, especially tungsten and titanium, are technically very difficult to cut, even with high-end electronic ring-cutting equipment. Ring cutting takes time, and can generate heat and cause burns, and high velocity filings can cause injury.
The penrose-drain and elastic-band methods of finger swelling reduction work on the same principles as Ring Rescue, but are very operator-dependent, and are also time consuming and can be difficult to delegate effectively.
Prolonged hospital stays, surgical interventions, and complicated outcomes have all been reported with ring cutting for removal. Traditional methods of nondestructive removal are operator dependent, time consuming, and have variable success.
Ring Rescue is simple. Apply, inflate, and within seconds walk away. Return, remove the device, and remove the ring intact. Problem solved. Sometimes the amount of swelling or intrinsic finger size is such that direct ring removal is impossible, even with Ring Rescue. In event that direct removal is unsuccessful, the healthcare provider can still benefit from the decreased overall swelling following Ring Rescue use, which makes other methods of removal technically easier. Ring Rescue provides a must-have tool for the emergency medicine toolbox.
Urgent Care, Family Medicine, Surgical and Obstetrical Clinics, and Nursing Home use
Patients often experience the problem of stuck rings needing removal, but sending this problem to the Emergency Department might not always be practical or desirable for your patients.
Given that ring removal has its own billing codes, it may be beneficial to purchase Ring Rescue and offer this service directly to your patients from the clinic setting.
Whether it is an orthopedic surgery clinic requiring ring removal for extremity surgery, a geriatric clinic or nursing home wishing to avoid costly and disruptive transfers to hospital, a family medicine clinic wishing to expand comprehensiveness, or an obstetrical clinic seeing pregnancy-related complications.
Incorporate Ring Rescue into your practice, add our tool to your suite of care options, and save your patient the trouble of going to the Emergency Department.
