A brand new range of patient monitors meets the demands of various hospital settings, such as emergency rooms, recovery units, sub-acute units, and general wards.

The fourth generation of Mindray Medical (Shenzhen, China) mid-acuity monitors, the ePM Series brings a new, smartphone-like user experience that provides a user-friendly interface design that allows caregivers to access common functions in no more than two steps. Features include an excellent visual experience, intelligent operation (including gesture support), accurate physiological measurements, smooth workflow, and comprehensive connectivity options, all without sacrificing any functionality.

Various clinical assistive applications (CAAs) are provided, such as automated early warning scoring (EWS), which helps caregivers identify deteriorating patients quicker and more accurately; CrozFusion technology, which combines and analyses SpO2 pleth waveforms and electrocardiogram (ECG) data to help reduce false arrhythmia alarms by 50%, and increase the accuracy of heart rate and pulse rate by 30%; and specialized measurement tools designed for newborns that improve safety in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Other features include seamless connection to the central nursing station or the hospital’s electronic medical record (EMR), which allows continuous monitoring at the point of care, be it at the bedside or under triage. Interruptions in monitoring during patient transfers can cause unintentional, unwelcome interference and false alarms during the monitoring process, which could lead to alarm fatigue further burdening already busy caregivers.

“Inheriting advantages from the last three generations, the 509, PM-9000, and iPM Series, the ePM series patient monitors are set to create a new milestone in the evolution of Mindray mid-acuity patient monitoring technology,” said Huang Haitao, vice president of Mindray. “The ePM Series well represents our mission – advanced medical technologies to make healthcare more accessible.”
