A Transducer Holder That Travels Well
A simple way to ensure that the transducer is always at the correct level.
When monitoring hemodynamic pressures during surgery, attach a Clark Socket to the head of the OR table. Secure a small metal rod to the OR table with the Clark Socket. Connect your transducer holder to the rod and level the transducer(s) to the desired point. Then whenever the OR table needs repositioning, the transducer will always be at the correct level throughout the surgical procedure.
