June 21, 2007 — Welch Allyn recently unveiled the Welch Allyn AcuityLink Clinician Notifier at the National Teaching Institute and Critical Care Exposition in Atlanta.
The AcuityLink Clinician Notifier is a hand-held patient monitoring solution that delivers real-time and historic waveforms, numerics and alarm information directly to caregivers via a wireless PDA device regardless of their location, giving providers vital information to make immediate decisions about their patients' needs.
The AcuityLink Clinician Notifier allows clinicians to self-assign patients at the beginning of their shifts, customize the type of alarms that are transmitted to the device, and utilize a bidirectional communication system with the Welch Allyn Acuity Central Station.
The device also has a three-tiered alarm escalation system that sends alarms to the primary caregiver and then will automatically escalate to a secondary clinician if the alarm persists and then to all clinicians on the network if necessary. It also provides audible and visual warnings if the user travels outside the wireless network coverage area, as well as distinct alarm tones for high-level and lethal arrhythmias as well as other vital sign parameter alarms.
