FDA Clears GE Patient Data Module

May 29, 2007 - GE Healthcare announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its CARESCAPE Patient Data Module for mobile patient monitoring, featuring 24-hour capture of critical patient data and a close-to-the-patient, self-powered design created to alleviate common portability constraints.

The CARESCAPE Patient Data Module reflects over 10,000 hours of testing and feedback from more than 700 clinicians. Its lightweight, miniature design reportedly allows the system to stay with the patient to capture and store all patient measurements, both standard and specialty, providing clinicians with the ability to maintain critical baseline measurements typically lost during transport. Its close-to-the-patient design reduces the length of cables that typically tether the patient to wall-mounted equipment and its grab-and-go transport capability reportedly reduces the potential for connection delays.
