iWELL’s Safety System
Real Name System
At iWELL, the names of the plastic surgeons performing the procedure are recorded to prevent unauthorized substitution and consequential medical incidents.
At iWELL, there is a full-time anesthesiologist who safely administers anesthesia and provides individualized care for patients before and after surgery. The anesthesiologist also monitors the patient’s vital signs and other physical conditions during surgery to ensure safety.
Central Monitoring System
iWELL became the first plastic surgery clinic in Korea to set up the central monitoring system of Nihon-Kohden. The system allows the medical staff to check the ECG, oxygen saturation, breathing rate, blood pressure, CO2 levels in the blood, etc. in real time to ensure patient safety during surgery.
Accurate Examination for Anesthesia Safety
A wide variety of tests and exams are administered prior to surgery including testing for diabetes, hypertension, arrythmia and tuberculous as well as ECG, chest X-ray, blood test and virus test. The results are then used to decide whether to proceed with surgery.
Latest Monitoring Equipment
iWELL is equipped with the latest monitoring equipment for accurate monitoring of the pulse, blood pressure, body temperature, CO2 levels and oxygen saturation of the patient under anesthesia during surgery.
Continuous Sedative Administering Equipment and Oxygen and Nitrogen Gas Supply Equipment
The continuous sedative administering equipment helps ensure anesthesia safety and proper breathing during surgery. There is oxygen and nitrogen gas supply equipment in the recovery room and patient room to ensure safety and comfort during recovery from anesthesia.
Plasma Disinfection and Sterilization System
iWELL has introduced a plasma disinfection and sterilization system that is comparable to that of university hospitals to sanitize all medical devices and consumables used in surgery. The vast majority of plastic surgery clinics apply the EOGas sterilization method, whereas iWELL employs its plasma disinfection and sterilization system to implement strict infection control according to protocol.
Bair Hugger Body Warmer
This equipment system helps keep the patient’s body temperature within the normal range during surgery so as to prevent hypothermia and this greatly reduces the time needed to recover after surgery.
Sterilized Warmer and Humidifier Filter
The moisture and heat released by the patient as he/she breathes out the anesthetic gas for general anesthesia are blocked so as to maintain moisture in the airway and the body temperature within the normal range. The filter also prevents bacteria and viruses from entering the airway in order to inhibit inflammation in the surgical site and pneumonia.
Possess the malignant hyperpyrexia, Dantrolene
iWell Plastic Surgery is always in possession of ‘Dantrolene’ to take an immediate action on malignant hyperpyrexia that rarely occurs during the general anesthesia.
Possess Bridion for safe recovery
Bridion is a medicine prescribed without insurance to patients or a high risk group that might find it difficult to breathe after the surgery at a university hospital. Safe and fast recovery is available under anesthesia without side-effects after the surgery.
Possess cricothyroidotomy equipment
Cricothyroidotomy equipment is inevitable to secure respiratory tract in case of emergency during the surgery. It is available to rapidly cope with emergency.
Possess professional emergency equipment and AED
We are in possession of professional emergency equipment and AED to prepare for the emergency and regularly conduct education for the instruction of equipment and safety to employees.
Establish Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
Safety of a patient is the top priority in any emergencies.
We are equipped with Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system to keep patients safe as it supplies electricity without stopping the operation of surgery equipment in spite of power failure in natural disasters.
