The Nellcor Bedside SpO2 system with OxiMax™ technology continuously monitors SpO2 and pulse rate for adult, pediatric and neonatal patients, giving clinicians instant access to comprehensive trending respiratory information. This enables clinicians to detect subtle, yet critical, heart rate and SpO2 variations earlier and thus address respiratory complications sooner.
“We are pleased to announce the new Covidien Nellcor Bedside SpO2 Patient Monitoring System is approved for commercial release in the United States,” said
The Nellcor Bedside SpO2 Patient Monitoring System also features enhanced digital signal processing for precise SpO2 readings during low perfusion or other challenging conditions that make it difficult to accurately track these patients. Its SatSeconds™ alarm management technology differentiates between serious and minor events to reduce clinically insignificant oxygen desaturation alarms. The monitor further offers an intuitive, multicolor screen that is easy to read in any light and from many angles. Additionally, hospital technicians can set institutional defaults, replace the battery, perform diagnostics and generally maintain the monitor within the hospital, saving time and resources.
The Nellcor Bedside SpO2 Patient Monitoring System meets medical electrical equipment safety standards, including IEC 60601-1:2005, and complies with the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) directive for products sold in European Economic Area markets.
