When it returns to EBME 2022, Mindray will showcase its strengths in providing total connectivity for patient monitoring and life support.
Driven by a vision of ‘better healthcare for all’, the leading global developer of medical devices, is committed to offering accessible innovation that helps improve patient outcomes. Its range of scalable, connected solutions integrate devices to provide holistic data monitoring at the point-of-care.
The need to accurately monitor patients and eliminate medical errors at the point-of-care has led to the ongoing drive for medical device data to be integrated with clinical information systems. For data to help improve clinical decision-making activities and to optimise patient care and safety, it needs to be timely, accurate, accessible and secure.
Mindray’s monitoring solutions, such as the VS9 Vital Signs Workstation, combined with a collaborative approach to open network architecture and interoperability, are meeting this challenge. Offering a comprehensive range of vital signs parameters with a variety of tools that support clinical decisions, the VS9 helps to improve the detection and response to patient deterioration.
When it was introduced at last year’s EMBE Expo, many visitors to Mindray’s stand fed back on how impressed they were with the VS9’s Early Warning Scores (EWS) functionality. Automatically calculating patient scores, the VS9 also provides customisable escalation messages, limiting the need for manual calculation and input. Consequently, it reduces room for error and supports faster clinical intervention, when required.
Earlier this year, the Office for Health Improvement confirmed how falls in hospital are the most commonly reported patient safety incident with more than 240,000 reported in acute hospitals and mental health trusts in England and Wales. As such, the drive to try and prevent falls and fractures is increasing. The VS9 is equipped to support this, recording sitting and standing BP readings that allow early diagnosis of orthostatic hypotension and helping to mitigate fall risk for greater patient safety.
“Connectivity and interoperability are key to promoting value-based care, and improving patient outcomes - both effectively and efficiently,” said John Mendonca, Mindray’s National Account Manager, IT Connectivity Sales.
The VS9 Vital Signs Workstation provides a great example of how we’re bringing this concept to life, going above and beyond the visualisation of vital signs to enable NEWS2, scalable connectivity, flexible workflows and comprehensive parameters.”
On booth C05, Mindray will showcase its broad portfolio of connected patient monitoring, ultrasound and life support systems.
