Stat NIBP Initiated, Desired Parameters Recorded with One Button

The mCare 300 Vital Signs Monitor can be used to assess patient essential vital signs quickly. At the tough of a button, clinicians can initiate a stat NIBP reading, record desired parameters (with the optional two-channel integrated recorder) and enlarge numeric values for greater visibility or silence alarms. Single-level menus assure instant access to the desired parameter.

The monitor includes basic arrhythmia monitoring with alarms for high and low heart rate, ventricular fibrillation and asystole. It can be used in adult, pediatric and neonatal settings.

With a single battery, the portable monitor weighs 9 pounds (4.1 kgs) and can operate for a minimum of four hours. However, it accommodates two Lithium-ion batteries, and batteries can be exchanged without loss of power.
