At Medtronic we recognise that surgical management of patients with obesity pose unique added challenges.
Our suite of technology provides real time user feedback in anaesthetic access and delivery to facilitate optimal anaesthesia, and closely monitors the patient’s vital signs to help avoid unnecessary complications.
Effective pre-op processes contributes to faster recovery and fewer complications.
You do your best to avoid airway complications. You know they can be associated with significant patient morbidity and unnecessary expense.2,3,4
But sometimes they occur when you least expect.5,6
With the McGRATH™ MAC video laryngoscope, you can be better prepared for the unexpected. Combining confidence with simplicity and convenience — so your first attempt is your best.
Medtronic provides bedside and handheld capnography monitors along with a complete portfolio of single-use sampling lines.
From neonate to adult, for intubated and non-intubated patients, Microstream™ capnography monitors are responsive and accurate, and provide continuous data for each patient’s oxygenation and ventilation status.
By providing insight into the direct and patient-specific effects of anesthesia on the brain, the BIS™ brain monitoring system helps clinicians determine and administer the precise amount of drug to meet the needs of each individual patient, leading to increased patient anesthesia satisfaction.
The Nellcor™ pulse oximetry system with OxiMax™ technology establishes a new milestone in patient safety monitoring that can impact clinical settings from the everyday to the extraordinary.
We offer a full suite of continuous respiratory function monitoring solutions to alert you to respiratory compromise so you can intervene earlier and improve patient safety and outcomes.
Our aspiration and strategy is to build partnerships with healthcare stakeholders with joint accountability to deliver outcomes based value in healthcare.
