To flawlessly observe and document a patient’s imperative signs data as they move around the hospital, the new monitoring constituent for the Drager Infinity Acute Care System namely the Drager Infinity M540 has been unveiled. The Infinity M540 is claimed to be completely incorporated with the Drager Infinity C700 or C500 Medical Cockpit, which exhibits essential signs data together with networked clinical information.
The purpose of the Infinity Acute Care System is to maintain and enhance hospital processes and procedures. As a module of this system, the Infinity M540 is said to be associated with this aim. The monitor stays with the patient all through the care path.
The device gauges and saves patient fundamental signs data, counting 12-lead ECG and etCO2 values. For transportation, the hospital staff can let go of the M540 from its docking station by means of one hand. The monitor apparently carries on to exhibit and document vital data devoid of disturbance. As soon as the M540 is reconnected to a docking station, whether at its preceding place or on a different ward, it could mechanically backfill the data recorded on transport into the Medical Cockpit, which appears to be the essential control and viewing unit of the Infinity Acute Care System.
This way, trend and events from the patient’s present hospital stay seem to be available to the clinician even post transport. When the device is applied in combination with an Infinity C700 or C500 Medical Cockpit, pertinent monitoring parameters are apparently obtainable.
Professor Dr. Jurgen Peters, Director of the Clinic for Anesthesiology and Intensive Care at Essen University Hospital, commented, “In view of increasingly complex clinical scenarios, having comprehensive patient information is becoming a key factor in modern patient care. In the daily clinical routine, it is important for staff and patients that devices are simple to operate. The less we have to concentrate on the technology, the more we can focus on the patients.”
The slender, rectangular design of the M540 enables it to hold the patient monitor with just one hand. The color display fills nearly the complete surface region of the monitor, so numerous vital signs parameters could be seen at a glimpse in spite of the compact size of the device.
When the monitor is rotated 180 degrees, the display spins mechanically so information could be directly clear again. When docked, the M540 may involuntarily implement the settings from the Medical Cockpit to which it is connected. This could enable every ward to directly show the parameters pertinent to the ward without having to reprogram the device.
This device could be a great source of help in hospitals and aid doctors in monitoring their patients in a big way.
