Mindray Introduces NMT Module for Passport OR Monitors at Anesthesiology 2017
New Neuromuscular Transmission Module demonstrates continuing focus on solutions for the demanding anesthesia environment; Anesthesiology 2017 in Boston also showcases significant updates in anesthesia and ultrasound solutions
In conjunction with the opening of the American Society of Anesthesiologists annual meeting in Boston today, Mindray announces the introduction of its Neuromuscular Transmission (NMT) Module for its Passport 17m and 12m monitors. The NMT Module provides a stimulus to a nerve in the hand and measures the response to that stimulus. The response provides an indication of the level of muscle relaxation in the patient under a neuromuscular blockade.
Like all of the measurements made within the Passport monitoring system, NMT information can be integrated onto the display and exported to the anesthesia information system or hospital EMR.
At Anesthesiology 2017, Mindray will showcase its Care Path Solutions, supporting hospital initiatives toward better outcomes, improved efficiencies, and patient satisfaction. The Passport monitors will be shown with the innovative T1 Transport Monitor/Module which operates as a module within the OR’s Passport monitors, then can serve as a transport monitor moving with the patient to the recovery environment, supporting improved workflow.
The Boston meeting will also provide the opportunity to showcase the A7 Anesthesia Workstation with the Optimizer™ suite to assist in the reduction of anesthetic gas use and a range of point-of-care ultrasound systems to support the needs of the anesthesia professional, from needle placement to cardiac monitoring with TEE in the cardiovascular OR. Guest physicians will be demonstrating ultrasound scanning technique in the booth.
