A new patient monitor expands the capabilities of a telemetry unit, offering parameters and functionality for vital signs spot checks, bedside monitoring and transport. The IntelliVue MP5T from Philips is rugged and reliable, and gives a clear view of all patient measurements with an 8.4” (21.3 cm) intuitive touch screen. Industry-standard measurements include ECG via the IntelliVue Telemetry System transceiver, non-invasive blood pressure, predictive temperature, SpO2, and the sinus tachycardia segment and arrhythmia monitoring (ST/AR) arrhythmia algorithm. Clinical decision support tools such as ST Map and Drug Calculator reveal more information when it counts most, enhancing clinician confidence.

Additional advanced features include a redesigned user interface for improved visibility of patient data, greater ease of use and enhanced compatibility with standard software. The Dynamic Wave area features waves that automatically adjust in size depending on the number of waves configured. Each NBP measurement now generates a column in the vital signs trend table. Measurements for other values are added to provide a comprehensive vital signs data set for the NBP measurement time, offering a more complete picture. The Smart Alarm Delay algorithm helps reduce the number of pulse oximetry nuisance alarms, allowing the operator to focus attention where needed.

The system automatically pairs measurements from the IntelliVue MP5T and telemetry transceiver and sends them wired or wirelessly to the  IntelliVue Information Center where the real-time monitoring surveillance of a central station is paired with clinical decision support tools and the ease of touch screen operation.
