Our mission is to simplify diagnostics and help discover diseases earlier.

Working in healthcare, especially developing devices that improve the individual patient’s health and wellbeing, gives added value to our personal purpose. We all strongly stand by our mission – empower first-contact care to diagnose diseases early and therefore provide on-time and successful treatment, preventing serious consequences.

As the coronavirus and its dreadful consequences are overwhelming the whole world, we are happy to bring you some great news and inspiring movements that will make you smile. The following is one of them for sure.

Our partner EBOS from Australia has shared a story with a happy ending with us. Here is what Tricia Callow, a Chronic Disease Management RN Adviser, who was involved in the case, told us about it and her job in general.

Why did you decide on a career as a nurse?

In the nursing profession, you deal with many aspects of patient care and help them through difficult times. I enjoy the variety in improving their lives as it is very satisfying for me.

What challenges are you facing in wound management?

Acute and chronic wounds are a growing global concern, driven by aging populations and the increasing prevalence of chronic conditions such as diabetes and obesity. As the incidence of chronic wounds continues to rise, we are facing significant clinical, administrative, and financial challenges.

When was your first encounter with MESI ABPI MD?

Last year, at one of the centers I consult in.  

What were your first thoughts about it?

What an easy-to use and handy device with such a positive impact on patients’ well-being!

Please share with us an example of a case, where you had to deal with a PAD patient. How did MESI ABPI MD help you?

We performed an ABI measurement using MESI ABPI MD and discovered the patient’s left ABI being 0.6. We immediately referred her to a radiologist who confirmed the presence of severe PAD. Afterwards, she has been appointed to a vascular surgeon for surgical revascularization, who managed to treat her on time. Her ABI improved from 0.6 to 0.9 almost at once!

Would you recommend it to others as well?

Yes, for sure! Any healthcare professional that wants to provide a reliable, risk-free arterial assessment and obtain accurate results within a very short amount of time.

To conclude: what does knowing you might have saved somebody’s life feel like?

Even though we are doing it almost daily, it is still a special feeling knowing there are people who will be able to wake up to a new day because of what we did. There is no job that can give you that satisfaction!

The above-mentioned anecdote is a living proof that MESI is more than successful in providing on-time treatment and saving patients’ lives all around the world.
