Welch Allyn Introduces Two Connectivity-Ready ECG Devices

Devices designed for use in settings requiring portability, flexibility and efficiency

Welch Allyn Inc. CP 150 CP 50 ECG Management System

July 17, 2013 — Welch Allyn announced the availability of two connectivity-ready electrocardiograph devices in the United States. The Welch Allyn CP 150 offers flexible report formatting, intuitive design and functionality in addition to administering patient tests and managing information via a touch screen, color display. The Welch Allyn CP 50 offers the speed and power of a fully-featured ECG in a compact, portable size. Designed for use in settings where flexibility and efficiency are of utmost importance, both devices administer patient tests at the push of a button. Each can also interface with the Welch Allyn CardioPerfect Workstation to connect, manage and share patient information.

“Connected and portable devices are important for healthcare providers in a variety of clinical settings,” said Peter Glocker, senior manager, cardiopulmonary products at Welch Allyn. “The CP 50 and CP 150 have a number of connectivity options to help manage and share patient information. Additionally, each easy-to-use device will allow clinicians to do more with less because they can administer tests, interface with other systems and help reduce data documentation time. These flexible ECGs offer the best of both worlds — simple, accurate testing and intuitive data management capabilities.”

The user-friendly Welch Allyn CP 150 was designed to help improve practice workflow. The 7-inch, color touch screen display with an integrated user interface eliminates the need to track between the display and keyboard and allows for fast and easy entry of patient data helping to save time and reduce errors. A lead quality display is also incorporated into the touch screens, which helps easily and efficiently identify lead connection problems. An instant-on feature powers up the device quickly to take an ECG at a moment’s notice and the advanced filters provide optimal ECG trace quality to ensure accurate readings. The CP 150 can be transported easily with the battery-powered operation and up to 100 test results can be stored on the device. ECG results can also be transferred directly to a USB memory stick for additional storage or uploaded to the practice’s data management system through the Welch Allyn CardioPerfect Workstation.

The compact Welch Allyn CP 50 has a touch screen display that facilitates one-button operation — guiding healthcare providers through each test quickly and easily. It provides on-screen instructions that save time and ensure accurate data capture by highlighting poor signals and connections. The device comes equipped with an integrated high-resolution small format thermal printer that generates ECG reports in customizable formats, and the optional MEANS ECG interpretation program provides advisory interpretation. Finally, with the connection to the Welch Allyn CardioPerfect Workstation, users have access to a full range of paperless ECG data management solutions and flexible connectivity solutions.

“These devices offer tangible benefits like the integrated user interface with the touch screen displays, instant-on features and programmable report formats,” added Glocker. “But, it’s the resulting tangible benefits like ease-of-use, reliability and speed that clinicians and patients will appreciate the most.”
