Overview:

Continuous Monitoring for Every Area of Care

Traditionally, one calibration curve or a limited set of curves is programmed within the monitor. With OxiMax™ technology, the calibration is in the sensor, giving clinicians the ability to take advantage of new sensor designs without always upgrading the monitor.

Founded on three basic principles:

  • Track the truth

  • Give no false assurance

  • Do no harm

These principles guide the design of our Nellcor pulse oximetry with OxiMax™ technology, which provides clinical performance that helps ensure appropriate oxygenation throughout the cardiorespiratory cycle-even in such difficult monitoring conditions as low perfusion and signal interference, including patient motion.([FOOTNOTE=Covidien FDA 510(k) K123581.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Covidien FDA 510(k) K012891.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

Nellcor™ Sensors with OxiMax™ Technology Advantage

Patients have a wide range of conditions. To stay ahead of potential complications, clinicians need accurate, reliable continuous monitoring devices to help them ensure appropriate oxygen delivery throughout the cardiorespiratory cycle. Nellcor™ sensors with OxiMax™ technology meet this need.

From the NICU and ICU to the OR and general care floor, Nellcor™ pulse oximeters with OxiMax™ technology and OEM solutions from Covidien use cardiac-based signal processing and alarm management technologies to deliver accurate, reliable SpO2 and pulse rate readings.1

Nellcor™ sensors with OxiMax™ technology enable clinicians to:

  • Obtain accurate readings, even during low perfusion and most types of signal interference, including patient motion.1
  • Oversee a wide range of patients, from neonates to adults, including those who require long-term monitoring.
  • Improve the clinical relevance of the more challenging alarms and easily distinguish between minor transient events and clinically significant desaturations.2
  • Accurately track SpO2 in low-saturation conditions with the LoSat expanded accuracy feature.([FOOTNOTE=Bebout DE, Mannheimer PD, Wun C-C.

  • Perform quick spot-checks or continuously monitor patients in any location.
  • Have confidence in the accuracy resulting from the combination of Nellcor™ monitors with OxiMax™technology and the extensive portfolio of Nellcor™ sensors.2
