Less than a year ago, the company introduced SafeNSound, which battles alarm fatigue by allowing clinicians to review a customized alarm summary, including statistics for each monitored patient, to help in determining appropriate alarm protocols.

In May, the company will release its high-acuity Qube Mini monitor, for monitoring during patient transport. The Qube Mini will have an eight-inch screen and an integrated IV pole mount, which the company says allows clinicians to easily monitor what’s happening with their patient throughout the trip.

All Spacelabs monitors are capable of utilizing the wireless accessory at an additional cost, which Robert Hoctor, vice president of global strategic marketing for Spacelabs, says allows patients to move around while their heart activity continues to be monitored.

“This patient area network eliminates the need for a traditional telemetry network and the costs associated with this type of deployment,” Hoctor says. “The result is maximum flexibility to exercise patients with reduced risk of tripping hazards and clumsy equipment management.”
