Cook Medical, a provider of minimally invasive medical procedures, has launched Doppler DP-M350 Blood Flow Monitor.

The Blood Flow Monitor aids surgeons and nurses to monitor blood flow during transplant and reconstructive surgeries.

Cook Medical Surgery business unit vice president Andy Cron said its Doppler DP-M350 Blood Flow Monitor has the ability to detect changes in blood flow immediately following transplant and reconstructive surgeries so a surgeon can intervene before free flap failure.

University of Pittsburgh surgery assistant professor Michael Gimbel said Cook’s Doppler system has the ability to monitor difficult-to-reach vascular areas and detect a stop in blood flow so a surgeon can intervene before it’s too late.

"Additionally, the Cook system aids in flap insetting, as it can help detect a vessel kink prior to leaving the OR," Gimbel said.
