The University awarded a contract for Terumo peripheral vascular supplies.
Terumo's peripheral vascular supplies (catheters, wires, and snares) are used by interventional radiologists for angiography procedures. An angiogram is an x-ray image of blood vessels after they are filled with a contrast material. An angiogram of the heart, a coronary angiogram, is the evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD). A coronary angiogram can be used to identify the exact location and severity of CAD.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) Terumo disposable supplies have to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific supplies the Hospital would not be able to offer coronary angiograms that in turn would drive patients else where and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
