July 18, 2007 — Omron Healthcare recently announced the launch of a new portable patient monitor (model BP-S510). This product is the first to be released by Omron since the company’s acquisition of Colin in April 2006.
The BP-S510 combines non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP) technology and Omron’s reportedly user-friendly design capabilities to provide a versatile, lightweight monitor that will enable close watch of a patient’s vital signs whether they are sedentary or being moved within a hospital.
Comprehensive vital sign measurements on the monitor include non-invasive blood pressure (systolic, diastolic and mean arterial pressures) (NIBP), electrocardiography (ECG), two channel temperature, invasive blood pressure (ABP) and capnography (EtCO2), functional arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate and respiration
The BP-S510 provides simple, user-friendly operation that makes it ideal for a wide variety of uses including conscious sedation, post-anesthesia care, step-down, and emergency rooms, according to manufacturer.
Weighing 12.1 lbs, it is easy to transport the monitor from floor to floor, and an optional rechargeable battery allows the device to be used during transport for up to two hours. A 10.4 inch LCD screen on the device allows a wide viewing angle with color-coded parameters for increased visibility. Easy-to-see function buttons include a jog-dial for quick and efficient navigation of vital patient data.
