STARSystem

Adjusting the Shoulder Joint Screw | STARBoard | STARSystem


Prior to placing the STARBoard, tighten the shoulder pivot to a comfortable level of tension. It should allow the armrest of and daggerboard to move freely yet be firm enough to keep the patient in your preferred position. Once set, this can be left for future use.
The tension of this screw is adjusted to different settings depending on what arm approach you're doing. When you do a left arm approach you need it free to pivot when carrying out puncture. Then when you attach Left arm support you would then tighten the shoulder screw to prevent left arm support from pivoting away from patient. View More




Correct Placement of the Daggerboard | STARBoard | STARSystem


Correct table placement of the daggerboard is essential to the function of the STARSystem. It provides greater adaptability and flexibility for various patient sizes. The daggerboard is placed between the mattress and the image table and will then be supported in place by the patient.
The daggerboard should be positioned between the shoulder and the elbow. Optimum placement is dependent on the height of the patient. When pushing the STARBoard daggerboard underneath the mattress, ensure the shoulder joint is positioned in close until it is sitting adjacent to the mattress. This will ensure product security throughout the procedure.
Shorter Patient Placement
The optimal position for shorter patients is between the shoulder and mid-arm, often closer to the shoulder. Taller Patient Placement
The optimal position for taller patients is between the mid-arm and elbow, often closer to the elbow. View More




Placing the Patient's Arm in the Armrest | STARBoard | STARSystem


Ensure the patient grips the handle firmly. This will ensure that the slider adjusts to suit the patient's arm length and the wrist and forearm are correctly positioned in the armrest. View More




Positioning for Proximal Radial Access | STARBoard | STARSystem


The patient should now be holding the handle. With the arm slightly abducted, rotate the wrist so the hand is supinated (or palm up), then gently hyper-extend the wrist to present the radial artery for puncture.
Note: The sterile drape may already be in place. View More




Positioning Following Proximal Radial Access | STARBoard | STARSystem


Once Proximal Radial Access has been achieved, gently return the wrist from hyper-extension, rotate the patient’s hand to a medially rotated position and then return the wrist to the patient’s side.
The patient’s arm can then be positioned at their side for the duration of the procedure, allowing for adjustments to be made at any point during the procedure. View More
