"The chopping / pounding / mixing and timing issues of producing "acceptable sterile slush" comprise some of the more crude things going on in an OR today. It's the 21st century ... there is a better way. THIS!"
CVOR Clinical Consultant
"It’s like going from a horse and buggy to a brand new Mustang!"
Surgical Tech | CVOR
"The SurgiSLUSH™ Unit is very user friendly and one unit has allowed us to make slush for multiple specialties at the same time."
Director | Surgery
"The SurgiSLUSH™ freezer is a major improvement over our old system! This system can provide slush for multiple rooms. The OR environment is much quieter, and less crowded. We make the slush in the morning before our cases start so they are ready for the day and the quality of the slush is far superior over the other technology. With this system, our surgeons have smoother, high quality slush to work with and our nurses don't have to attend to making sure the slush is maintained ..."
Clinical Coordinator | CVOR
"Slush machine is doing great, everyone loves it. We've been able to utilize setting the timer to have fresh slush in the morning, which is nice."
"These units have made our recovery program the most efficient/effective. Our doctors never have to wonder whether or not the slush is perfect, consistent, sterile, or available."
Director of Materials | Organ Transplant Program
"Nice job on the design. You guys are amazing."
MSN RN BSBA | Transplant Nurse Manager | Academic Medical Center
"We love it and have included it in over 13 presentations to centers who want to build ORC like ours."
Chief Administrative Officer | Academic Medical Center
"Thank you both for the great experience (our facility) had with its trial of SurgiSlush™."
BSN RN, BSN, MBA, CMSRN | Clinical Resource Director | Regional Medical Center
"Those impervious drapes get holes in them – can’t tell you how many times I have had to tell a family about a potential exposure .... This is why I want a better system ... where sterility is never a concern."
Chief, Cardiothoracic Surgery | VA Medical Center
"It was a definite upgrade with sterile slush in a tamper-proof container."
Clinical Director | Perioperative Services
"Should slush in a sterile self-contained package be standard of care? I believe it should. Great patient-safety centered innovation!"
Medical Director | Practicing Urologist
"My team and our surgeons ... big supporters of SurgiSLUSH™!"
Director | Surgical Services
"I would expect SurgiSlush™ to become a standard for transplant ORs."
"Our new slush units are great. We love having slush ready when we get to work."
Transplant Specialty Practice Leader | Academic Medical Center
"As a CVOR traveler, I get to see how many different ways we do the same thing. I was in place when a facility switched to this system ... LOVE IT! One less piece of equipment in the way and making noise. One less cord on the floor to trip over."
RN | CVOR
"I was always concerned about maintaining the sterility of the slush when pounding the frozen saline bag on the floor or hard surface, and in the case of the old slush machines where the top was generally uncovered. SurgiSLUSH with its sealed system is a game changer in infection protection."
"I prefer sterile container slush vs open air slush for open partial nephrectomy cases. This gives peace of mind in peri-operative and post-operative patient care."
"We love our SurgiSLUSH™"
