TECHNOLOGY YOU CAN COUNT ON
Nellcor™ pulse oximetry was at the forefront of developing monitoring technology to help clinicians make informed decisions about patient respiratory status. The faster accurate readings are provided — especially for patients whose conditions can change rapidly and frequently — the earlier clinicians can determine whether intervention is required, helping to reduce risks associated with inadequate oxygenation.([FOOTNOTE=Wyllie J, Perlman JM, Kattwinkel J, Adkins DL, Chameides L, Goldsmith JP, et al. 2010 International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care Science with Treatment Recommendations. Resuscitation. 2010;81 (Suppl 1): e260-87.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) With the pulse at its foundation, Nellcor™ pulse oximetry algorithms are clinically validated, even under challenging conditions like patient motion, and low perfusion.†
With so many monitor alarms in a hospital, it can be challenging for clinicians to know when to trust that an alarm is meaningful and actionable. Nellcor™ SatSeconds alarm management was designed to help reduce alarm fatigue. It’s a clinician-controlled feature engineered to distinguish between serious hypoxemia and minor transient events. It generates alarms based on both the depth and duration of a patient’s desaturation.
And alarms shouldn’t trigger just because of motion. That’s why the Nellcor™ SatSeconds alarm management algorithm was tested under real clinical motion conditions, not mechanically-generated motion.([FOOTNOTE=Medtronic Reports: BRPMS Essential Requirements Matrix (Doc no. 10099165); Clinical, Motion, Connery OEM Module (Doc no. 10096395); and Clinical Report-COVMOPR0384, Motion, LAMP-C (Doc no. 10099560). ],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
