Caretaker Medical to Demonstrate Wireless Vital Signs & Continuous Blood Pressure (CNIBP) Monitoring Compatibility with Philips IntelliVue Monitors at 2018 HIMSS Conference
Charlottesville, VA February 26, 2018 – Caretaker Medical, maker of the Wireless Caretaker® Finger-Cuff Patient Monitoring Platform for Continuous Non-Invasive Blood Pressure (“CNIBP”) and Wireless Vital Signs, will demonstrate data interface compatibility with Philips IntelliVue Patient Monitors through the Philips IntelliBridge EC10/EC5 module at the 2018 HIMSS Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas at booth #11657.
Already a recognized FDA-Cleared Wireless patient monitor for measuring Continuous Beat-by-Beat Blood Pressure (CNIBP), Respiration Rate, and Heart Rate from a simple finger cuff, Caretaker Medical will demonstrate compatibility with Philips IntelliVue monitors using Philips’ IntelliBridge Interface Module to wirelessly display continuous patient vital signs on Philips patient monitors. The wireless Caretaker eliminates the need for bulky arm cuffs, wires, and hoses that typically tether patients to the bedside. Patients wearing the Caretaker can be monitored with mobility…streaming continuous BP and vital signs as patients move throughout the full continuum of care.
“Integrating Caretaker’s CNIBP and Wireless patient monitoring capabilities with industry leading monitoring platforms is a big win for both clinicians and patients”, said Jeff Pompeo, President and CEO of Caretaker Medical. “Clinicians can view continuous, uninterrupted blood pressure and vitals from a simple finger cuff, and patients can enjoy freedom of movement unencumbered by cuffs and wires. Continuous “Beat by Beat” Blood Pressure in particular can provide a more comprehensive view of hemodynamic health as compared to traditional intermittent, bulky “spot-check” brachial arm cuffs.”
About Caretaker Medical
Caretaker Medical is a Charlottesville, Virginia based wireless medical device firm focused on developing affordable, innovative, wireless patient monitoring solutions that improve outcomes, increase clinician productivity, and maximize patient compliance without compromising patient comfort.
The wearable Caretaker4® monitor enables uninterrupted wire-free and electrode-free real-time vital signs monitoring throughout the full continuum of care, from clinic and hospital, to patient transport, and home monitoring after discharge. Using only a comfortable, low-pressure finger cuff, Caretaker’s patented Pulse Decomposition Analysis technology non-invasively measures continuous Beat-by-Beat blood pressure, Heart Rate, and Respiration Rate for remote display on the CareTaker® Tablet App and other Remote Data Displays. The Caretaker cNIBP technology delivers “ICU Quality” continuous measurements without intrusive catheters or cumbersome wires, giving clinicians the ability to recognize developing cardiopulmonary trends earlier with more lead time for intervention while providing a much more comprehensive view of a patient’s hemodynamic status.
