Product Highlights

Type: Emergency Medicine General Imaging

The refurbished GE Venue R1 and R2 ultrasound machines are highly mobile Point-of-Care color Doppler ultrasounds designed specifically for critical care in which efficiency, ease-of-use, and image quality are the key features for use. The Venue is the successor to the earlier modes: GE Venue 40 and GE Venue 50.

A 19″ articulating monitor provides a large user interface that provides simple, efficient use as well as high definition images that can be viewed from a distance from a wide viewing angle.

Key features for the Venue ultrasound machine include:

  • Up to 4 hours of battery life for busy emergency departments
  • Venue’s “Shock Toolkit” includes the Auto VTI, Auto IVC, and Auto B-Lines tools, for quick diagnosis of the status of the heart, the inferior vena cava, and the lungs
  • 4 probe connectors
  • 3-button programmable transducer allows the clinician to perform tasks without needing to be close to the machine, remove your hands from the task, or take your eyes off the patient.
  • Easy to clean interface

Version R2 includes upgraded software over the R1 version, otherwise there is not a large difference between the two machines.

For the Venue ultrasound, GE’s research and focus addressed these key clinical settings:

  • RUSH protocol (evaluating cardiac function, key vascular structures, and likely sources of hypotension) with stroke volume assessment
  • ARDS Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
  • BLUE Bedside Lung Ultrasound in Emergency
  • DVT Deep Vein Thrombus
  • VTI Velocity Time Integral
  • IVC Inferior Vena Cava

GE Venue Ultrasound Review:

The used GE Venue R1 and R2 Ultrasound machines are among GE’s systems designed for a very specific market. The use of ultrasound in critical care has become increasingly popular and important for more accurate diagnosis in emergency and ICU use. The Venue ultrasound provides excellent image quality with an efficient and easy-to-use interface. Unlike the GE Venue 40 and Venue 50, this system is console-based and cannot be removed from the cart.

Q:How is the GE Venue different from the Venue 40 and Venue 50?

A: The Venue uses a touchscreen interface like these two machines, but it is cart-based with a small footprint and has a much larger imaging screen. It also features probes and more advanced features that are designed for the critical care market.

Q:What is a "Point of Care" ultrasound machine?

A: "Point of Care" ultrasound machine refers to the rapidly growing group of physicians using ultrasounds in ways never used before. This includes surgery, emergency medicine, Intensive Care (ICU) and musculoskeletal care. "Point of Care" ultrasounds provide rapid diagnosis, visualization of tissue, and needle visualization for procedures at bedside. Typically these have limited user interfaces and are designed for quick diagnosis or visualization with limited diagnostic measurements.

Q:Should I buy the Venue or look at another ultrasound machine for my emergency department?

A: Only one person can answer this question: You. It's a hard decision, and our expert staff can help guide you to making the decision a lot easier.
