Royal Philips Electronics recently released the IntelliVue MMS X2 and IntelliVue MP2, a new patient monitor and multimeasurement module that will help clinicians and first responders better focus on treating patients.
The Philips IntelliVue MMS X2 is an enhanced multimeasurement module that can be used with any compatible Philips IntelliVue patient monitor. Once detached from the host monitor, it is an independent, battery-operated transport monitor with its own display, alarm function and the ability to store up to 24 hours of patient information. As soon as it is reconnected to another IntelliVue host monitor, the MMS X2 behaves like a conventional multimeasurement module, with stored patient monitoring data being automatically uploaded into the new monitor without interruption in monitoring. If equipped with wireless networking capability, the MMS X2 can also transmit data directly to an IntelliVue Information Center.
Philips is also introducing the IntelliVue MP2 patient monitor. Small hospitals and surgery centers can reportedly benefit from a rugged, compact, full-featured patient monitor that offers clinical decision support tools such as ST Map and Horizon Trends, and the ability to connect to the IntelliVue Clinical Network. The MP2, can run on batteries and also features a highly configurable display that can be set up to meet these users’ individual needs.
Both the MP2 and MMS X2 also meet Philips’ environmental standards in manufacturing and use, making them sustainable products.
