Overview

When patients are recovering and becoming ambulatory in the telemetry unit, you still need to monitor them with accurate, reliable, actionable pulse oximetry data. With the new GE ApexPro™* SpO2 Nellcor™ cable, your telemetry unit now has access to trusted Nellcor™ pulse oximetry technology. Simply unplug your current SpO2 telemetry cable and connect the GE ApexPro™* SpO2 Nellcor™ cable to your transmitter. Then plug the sensor into the cable and continue monitoring. Our cardiac-based algorithm and digital calibration technologies are engineered to offer accuracy — even during patient motion and low perfusion.([FOOTNOTE=Predicate Submission: Nellcor™ Oxicable, USB.

Integration and Standardization

Conversion and Integration

Converting to GE ApexPro™* CH/FH SpO2 Nellcor™ cable technology is simple and efficient.

  • There are no software or hardware updates required.  
  • Simply exchange your current SpO2 telemetry cable for the new CH or FH GE ApexPro™* SpO2 Nellcor™ cable. Then you’re ready to monitor your patients with the trusted Nellcor™ pulse oximetry technology used in other care areas of your hospital. 
  • Plug-and-play technology helps you quickly connect the sensor to the cable and the cable to the transmitter.

Standardization and Workflow

Monitor ambulatory patients in the telemetry unit with the trusted Nellcor™ pulse oximetry used in other areas of your hospital.

  • Experience a seamless transition as the patient arrives or leaves the telemetry unit. Simply connect the patient’s Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sensor to the GE ApexPro™* SpO2 Nellcor™ cable connected to your CH or FH telemetry transmitter and continue monitoring.
  • This technology eliminates cable-related SpO2 sensor requirements.
  • Standardizing a sensor supplier across multiple care areas may streamline workflow and create hospital supply chain efficiencies.

NELLCOR™ PORTFOLIO COMPATIBILITY

  • The GE ApexPro™* SpO2 Nellcor™ cable is compatible with the entire Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sensor portfolio.
  • The GE ApexPro™* SpO2 Nellcor™ cable features OxiMax™ advanced digital signal processing. This enables the pulse oximetry technology to deliver accurate saturation and pulse rate values during interference conditions — such as patient motion or low perfusion.1,†

  • The Nellcor™ pulse oximetry monitoring system should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis or therapy and is intended only as an adjunct in patient assessment.

  • Disclaimer: The integration of Medtronic SpO2 technology with the GE ApexPro™* telemetry system in the form of the GE ApexPro™* CH SpO2 – Nellcor™* cable and the GE ApexPro™* FH SpO2 – Nellcor™* cable is not cleared by FDA. This integration of the technology has been introduced onto the US market through enforcement discretion leveraging FDA guidelines supporting the COVID-19 public health emergency and this pathway can only be utilized for the duration of the emergency. This device is considered adjunctive technology and should not be solely or primarily relied upon to prevent, diagnose, or treat COVID-19 or co-existing conditions.

  • †Oxygen saturation accuracy can be affected by certain environmental, equipment, and patient physiologic conditions (as discussed in the operator’s manual for the monitor) that influence readings of SpO2. Please consult the IFU and manual for full safety information.
