Draeger releases next generation Infinity® Acute Care System monitoring solution PR Newswire LUBECK, Germany, May 30, 2012 - Advanced monitoring system streamlines workflow by enabling wireless transmission of vital signs data during patient transport, interoperability with ventilators, integration of Masimo rainbow® SET technology, and access to comprehensive clinical data at the point of need. LUBECK, Germany, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Draeger announces the VG2 release of its breakthrough Infinity Acute Care System monitoring solution. This release incorporates significant clinical benefits – including wireless surveillance, interoperability with Draeger's ventilation systems, land ambulance transport, and Masimo rainbow® SET technology. Draeger is one of the first major monitoring vendors to offer the full suite of Masimo's rainbow® SET noninvasive Pulse CO-Oximetry measurements, which can help hospitals increase patient safety and reduce costs. Medical technology brings many benefits to the delivery of patient care, but it can also add unwelcomed complexity for caregivers. As a result, clinicians often spend more time dealing with technical interfaces and complicated workflow and less time focusing on direct patient care. "At Draeger, our response to increased technical and clinical complexity is to explore ways we can simplify acute care delivery for clinicians," says Marita Klafke, President, Draeger Medical Systems Inc.

/PRNewswire/ --
Draeger announces the
VG2 release of its breakthrough Infinity Acute Care System
monitoring solution. This release incorporates significant clinical
benefits – including wireless surveillance, interoperability with
Draeger's ventilation systems, land ambulance transport, and Masimo
rainbow® SET technology. Draeger is one of the first major
monitoring vendors to offer the full suite of Masimo's rainbow® SET
noninvasive Pulse CO-Oximetry measurements, which can help
hospitals increase patient safety and reduce costs.
Medical technology brings many benefits to the delivery of patient care, but it
can also add unwelcomed complexity for caregivers. As a result, clinicians often
spend more time dealing with technical interfaces and complicated workflow
and less time focusing on direct patient care.
"At Draeger, our response to increased technical and clinical complexity is to
explore ways we can simplify acute care delivery for clinicians," says Marita
Klafke, President, Draeger Medical Systems Inc. "The Infinity Acute Care
System monitoring solution is designed to help streamline workflow so that the
clinician can focus on the needs of the patient."
The monitoring solution consists of a handheld Infinity M540 patient monitor
integrated with the Draeger Medical Cockpit®. The M540 transitions seamlessly
from the bedside to wireless transport, eliminating the time consuming process
of changing monitors and cables. The Medical Cockpit integrates vital signs
data from the M540, together with networked information such as patient
history, diagnostic images, lab results, and other relevant networked clinical
information into one widescreen display at the point of care.
The VG2 release also enables ventilation parameters from Draeger ventilators
to be displayed on the Medical Cockpit and sent over the network.
Wireless on transport
This fully networked solution allows a single monitor to accompany the patient
during the entire care pathway to minimize undetected events. When the
Infinity M540 is undocked at the bedside, it automatically switches to wireless
and broadcasts patient vital signs data to the Infinity Network allowing
uninterrupted monitoring during transport on the Infinity CentralStation. At the
same time, it opens the flow of patient information throughout the hospital and
beyond to support time-critical decision making.
Masimo rainbow® SET technology for noninvasive, continuous Pulse
CO-Oximetry measurements
The Infinity M540 integrates Masimo rainbow® SET technology – a
breakthrough monitoring platform that noninvasively and continuously
measures multiple blood components and hemodynamic parameters that
previously required invasive procedures.
"Integrating Masimo rainbow® SET technology into the Infinity Acute Care
System monitor solution gives our customers easy access to noninvasive
rainbow® measurements," continues Marita Klafke. "This technology delivers
real-time clinical intelligence that can help clinicians improve point-of-care
assessments and decision-making."
In addition to SpO(2), pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI), Masimo rainbow®
SET measures total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™),
carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), and Pleth Variability
Index (PVI®). Monitoring SpHb helps clinicians to immediately and continually
assess a patient's hemoglobin level, which may help reduce unnecessary blood
transfusions and associated costs, while SpCO and SpMet allow clinicians to
rapidly and accurately measure potentially life-threatening carbon monoxide
(CO) and methemoglobin levels in the blood. Using PVI, clinicians can monitor a
patient's volume status and fluid responsiveness.
Masimo rainbow® SET technology eliminates patient discomfort and workflow
delays associated with traditional invasive blood test processes to obtain these
measurements. It provides immediate clinical information that allows clinicians
to make clinical decisions in a more efficient way, helping to potentially reduce
the cost of expensive lab tests and the risk of blood exposure and cross-
contamination.
The Infinity Acute Care System monitoring solution is manufactured by Draeger
Medical Systems, Inc.
