Covidien, a provider of healthcare products and mechanical ventilators and respiratory care devices, has reported the availability of the new Infinity MCable with Nellcor OxiMax technology as an integrated component of the Drager Infinity Acute Care System in Europe.
Both the Infinity MCable system and Drager Infinity acute care system include the portable Infinity M540 monitor, a portable patient monitor that moves with patients as they are transported throughout the hospital.
The Infinity MCable with Nellcor OxiMax technology adds two features to the compact Drager monitor like Nellcor OxiMax specialty pulse oximetry sensors and Nellcor SatSeconds alarm management technology.
The integration of advanced pulse oximetry technology/clinician-controlled alarm management from Covidien with portable patient monitoring devices from Drager, underscores both companies’ continuing commitment in improving healthcare delivery.
The newly enhanced portable device provides clinicians with monitoring technology to optimize patient care as well as a technological solution to improve hospital efficiency and reduce the risk of human error.
