NU adopts Masimo technologies in Bangalore
Patient monitoring systems in NU Hospitals
NU Hospitals, a leading nephrology care center in India, has standardized on Masimo technologies across the continuum of care through a strategic partnership with Masimo.
It is to adopt technologies in their operating rooms (ORs), intensive care units (ICUs), dialysis beds, and general wards at both of their facilities in Bangalore.
NU Hospitals’ ORs will be equipped with Masimo Root® Patient Monitoring and Connectivity Hubs and Radical-7® Pulse CO-Oximeters®.
The monitors will include noninvasive, continuous hemoglobin monitoring (SpHb®), a Masimo rainbow® parameter, and, via Masimo Open Connect® (MOC-9®) technology, SedLine® brain function monitoring, said Dr. Prasanna Venkatesh, Pediatric Urologist & Managing Director, NU Hospitals.
“We have been evaluating various technologies that could help our clinicians improve patient safety and at the same time help reduce the cost of care,” he said.
In critical care areas and general wards, patients at NU Hospitals will now also be continuously monitored using a variety of bedside devices such as Root with Noninvasive Blood Pressure and Temperature and Rad-97™ Pulse CO-Oximeters.
Measurements will include SpHb, SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, vital signs such as blood pressure and temperature, and, for dialysis patients, pleth variability index (PVi®) monitoring to assist in optimizing fluid management.
The bedside devices will be connected to Masimo Patient SafetyNet™*, a supplemental remote monitoring and clinician notification system which allows patient monitoring data to be accessed from a central viewing station.
“We are excited to work with NU Hospitals and help them take better care of their patients with our advanced monitoring technologies,” said Jon Coleman, President of Worldwide Sales, Professional Services, and Medical Affairs, Masimo.
Bharat Monteiro, Country Manager for Masimo in India, added, “We are hopeful that more hospitals in India will adopt such advanced technologies across the continuum of care to help improve patient safety and reduce the cost of care.” fii-news.com
