Groundbreaking technologies deliver patient-centered, actionable,
intelligent solutions to enhance perioperative care
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Healthcare will introduce several new technologies that demonstrate
its ongoing commitment to improving the quality of patient care at
ANESTHESIOLOGY 2013, the annual meeting of the American Society of
Anesthesiologists, taking place October 12-16 in San Francisco. GE
Healthcare will showcase new innovations and advances in life-supporting
anesthesia delivery systems, patient monitoring, parameters and
accessories and highlight how all of these technologies function
together to specifically address the clinical needs in perioperative
"Innovation comes in all shapes and sizes," said Thierry Leclercq,
president and CEO, GE Healthcare Life Care Solutions. "At Anesthesiology
2013, we are proud to demonstrate several new technologies - from the
industry's first clinically validated forearm blood pressure cuff to
advanced digital anesthesia Carestations* with innovative solutions like
ecoFLOW - that can help guide more confident clinician decision-making,
help reduce costs and provide more personalized patient care."
GE Healthcare solutions at ANESTHESIOLOGY 2013 will include:
- Avance CS2 with ecoFLOW - This
innovative anesthesia delivery system with touch screen technology
helps enable fast clinical decision making at the point of care. With
ecoFLOW technology, clinicians receive visual guidance to help avoid
unnecessarily high or low gas flow rates and help clinicians maintain
their desired inspired oxygen concentration, in addition to
calculating the cost of agent consumed in real-time.
- GE CRITIKON* RADIAL-CUF - The GE CRITIKON* RADIAL-CUF is the
first clinically validated blood pressure cuff for the adult forearm,
designed to help combat inaccurate blood pressure readings for adult
obese or overly muscular patients. Upper arm blood pressure cuffs may
not properly fit the conical-shaped arms of obese or overly muscular
patients. As a result, clinicians often place an upper-arm cuff on a
patient's forearm even though it is not clinically validated there.
The GE CRITIKON* RADIAL-CUF blood pressure cuff now provides an
accurate and reliable blood pressure determination for these patients.
- CARESCAPE* Respiratory Module - With dozens of devices in the
OR, there is often limited space for critical monitoring equipment.
The new, miniaturized CARESCAPE* Respiratory Modules are single-width,
enabling full respiratory monitoring while providing more space for
- CARESCAPE* Monitor B850 and CARESCAPE* Monitor B650 - New
enhancements to GE Healthcare's scalable, integrated patient monitors
help reduce data disruptions and detect potential problems earlier.
There is a critical need for improved connectivity, interoperability and
predictive data in today's OR. Every day, clinicians are faced with a
multitude of perioperative devices to help support patient care - many
of which do not talk to each other. GE Healthcare is leading the way in
interoperability with integrated devices and information systems that
bring together traditionally disparate streams of patient data to
support efficient, patient-focused care.
