Drager Releases Widescreen Integrated Patient Monitor
At HIMSS 2008, Drager unveiled for the U.S. the Infinity Omega two-screen integrated patient monitoring solution, now with a widescreen.
The monitor is designed to support continuous monitoring by the bedside or patient transport. Its 20 inch touchscreen bedside computer brings IT applications to the point of care, said the company. Infinity Omega also reportedly displays real-time monitoring and ventilation data together with networked data - such as lab results, DICOM/X-ray images, and patient/anesthesia data management system information ï¿½ and allows control of monitoring functions from either screen.
The Infinity Omega solution integrates an Infinity Delta series patient monitor and docking station with an Infinity C700 for IT workstation and Infinity Explorer software, said Drager .The Infinity Delta monitor provides continuous monitoring at the bedside and on transport, while the patented Infinity Docking Station provides power, network connectivity and departmental screen configuration data. The Infinity C700 reportedly displays integrated patient data at the bedside on a 20-inch wide touchscreen display. Infinity Explorer software enables two-way communication between the Delta and the Infinity C700.
Through the Infinity Network, patient information gathered at the bedside can be viewed simultaneously at the Infinity CentralStation, said the company, which gathers and displays information from Infinity bedside and telemetry monitors for up to 32 patients. This data reportedly includes alarms, real-time waveforms and parameters, laboratory values and respiratory and ventilator information.
