At any medical facility, patient care is the primary objective and the goal for all staff. Providing staff with the equipment necessary for both specialized testing as well as regular monitoring is a key factor in meeting this objective.
One of the most popular patient monitors is the GE B40 monitor. This is really the workhorse monitor since it is able to offer so many different functions and features in a compact, durable and highly reliable package.
One of the first things you will notice with the GE B40 monitor is the easy to read and bold display. Each of the six possible waveforms can be seen with just a glance for real-time information and up to 72 hours of data can also be stored for review right on the monitor.
Additionally, all data read using the monitor can be immediately transferred to electronic patient records. This electronic medical record connectivity is helpful for doctors, nurses and technicians, with information readily available when and as needed.
The system comes with a 12-inch display that can be customized to the waveforms required for each patient. The system also includes simple buttons at the bottom to access common functions with just the push of a finger. Additionally, the system contains on-screen menus that are easy to scroll through to set-up the monitor quickly and easily. Finally, staff will also appreciate the pre-set limits on each function that automatically sound alarms when any measurements outside of the parameters are detected.
The monitor itself is able to record and display a wide variety of different essential patient vitals. It also allows for different monitoring points, which is important to be able to work with patients with different body types and different requirements.
The GE B40 monitor can display arrhythmias, ST-segments, blood pressure, temperature, airway gasses and oxygen delivery. The hemodynamic measurement can be completed using invasive or non-invasive measurements depending on the specific patient.
All monitoring systems are completely up to date with the latest in technology. This includes the use of infrared technology in measuring respiratory CO2 levels and the use of multi-lead simultaneous ECG analysis to quickly and effectively detect cardiac events.
This is an excellent choice in monitors for any patient care facility. It can mount to virtually any medical equipment and can easily be taken off the mounts and carried from room to room for the best in patient care.
