Clinician time and resources are limited, but a patient’s needs are not. Microstream™-enabled capnography monitoring provides an early warning of respiratory compromise,([FOOTNOTE=Maddox RR, Oglesby H, Williams CK, Fields M, Danello S., Continuous respiratory monitoring and a “smart” infusion system improve safety of patient-controlled analgesia in the postoperative period. http://www.ahrq.gov/downloads/pub/advances2/vol4/Advances-Maddox_111.pdf],[ANCHOR=View Abstract],[LINK=/content/covidien/websites/medtronic/com/en/covidien/support/clinical-evidence.html?id=573542]) offering clinicians the opportunity to provide care sooner and quickly determine how to intervene, reducing risk and saving time, money, and lives.
The Vital Sync™ system is a simplified and remotely deployable solution that can help you monitor your patients’ respiratory status, no matter where they are.
