Prometheus Medical Nordic signs general agreement with Statoil
Agreement includes the delivery of ultrasound and trauma training courses
Stavanger, 22nd May 2017
Prometheus Medical Nordic, a leading provider of pre-hospital emergency medical training and equipment, has signed a general agreement with Statoil, one of the largest companies in Norway delivering energy worldwide. The majority of Statoil’s activity is conducted on the Norwegian continental shelf, whereby the company has more than 40 installations.
The agreement with Prometheus Medical Nordic includes the delivery of ultrasound and trauma courses. The first point-of-care ultrasound course has already been held at the Prometheus Medical Nordic office in Stavanger and was a great success.
Attending future courses will be Statoil`s SAR nurses, who cover remote installations in the Barents Sea. The SAR personnel are trained in focused ultrasound examinations for trauma, heart and lung, abdomen and large vessels. In real patient scenarios, onshore doctors guide offshore nurses via video-conference assisted ultrasound examinations to diagnose or exclude life-threatening injuries or medical conditions. The training aims to improve patient care in remote locations by utilising modern diagnostic tools, as well as avoiding unnecessary helicopter medical evacuations.
“This agreement with Statoil is an extremely positive step for Prometheus Medical Nordic,” states Nils Petter Oveland, CEO of Prometheus Medical Nordic. “The demand for our equipment is also on the rise in Nordic countries. Statoil is set to implement the Nightingale Dressing, Russell Chest Seal, Prometheus ChitoGauze XR Pro, Prometheus Haemorrhage Control Pack and Prometheus Traction Splint within their equipment setup.”
Prometheus Medical Nordic was established in 2016 and has already delivered multiple ultrasound and trauma courses in the region. To find out more about the life-saving services Prometheus Medical Nordic offers, visit: www.prometheusmedical.co.uk
