On patient

When interpreting ECG waveforms, even the most sophisticated algorithms can be defeated by a loose or improperly located electrode. That is why our focus on quality begins with our electrodes and sensors, which meet our exacting standards and are designed to deliver clear signals to our monitors, enhancing alarm reliability.

IntelliVue monitors put you in control of alarming parameters, so you can separate actionable from nonactionable alarms. They permit you to tailor alarms to the clinical characteristics of individual patients and groups of patients, so you can choose different alarm triggers that reflect different patient conditions. Advanced clinical decision support (CDS) tools provide graphical views that help you analyze measurement trends so you can respond to patient needs even before an alarm is triggered.

Central station

IntelliVue Information Center (PIIC iX) provides a powerful central monitoring system that gives you one intuitive view of each patient’s current status, personalized to the patient’s clinical condition and configured for your department. From the PIIC iX information center, several review applications highlight interdependencies and give you a clear picture of patient status and condition.

CareEvent delivers parameters, waveforms, and other alarm-based data directly to your hospital-supplied smartphone, so you can confidently assess patient condition even when you are away from the bedside or information station. With clinical context in your hands, you can make an informed decision to respond, escalate an alarm to a colleague, or communicate effectively with the care team.

Analyze and enhance to reduce noise levels

Patient safety is the first priority for any healthcare provider. While patients are at risk when relevant data fails to trigger an alarm, they are also at risk when too many non-actionable alarms create unnecessary noise and lead to alarm fatigue, The PIIC iX Alarm Audit Log supports hospital research on alarming and sentinel events and provides data to continuously improve your alarm management.

CareEvent and reports – including the number of alarms, the times of alarms, the caregiver response and response times associated with the alarms – can be used to adjust your alarm parameters, improve your protocols, and balance the workload among caregivers.

Get near real-time information from virtually anywhere

Care teams need clinically rich patient information to support continuous collaboration, timely diagnosis, and early intervention. Now caregivers can communicate and collaborate to decide the best course of care. Even when they’re on the go.
