Philips announces launch of new heart monitor and defibrillator

Royal Philips has announced the launch of the HeartStart Intrepid monitor and defibrillator with IntelliSpace Connect, which has received CE Mark approval.

It aims to provide clinical and operational efficiencies in the emergency care continuum, the solution lets caregivers evaluate and treat patients during demanding medical emergencies in both pre-hospital and hospital settings.

Arman Voskerchyan, business leader, therapeutic care at Philips, said: “First responders don’t often know what to expect when they arrive at the scene of an emergency, so they have to be equipped and ready to handle anything that may come up in the field. A full range of monitoring capabilities and decision support tools let emergency staff quickly evaluate and treat patients in life-threatening situations. Enhanced connectivity between care settings helps to streamline communication and improve clinical workflow for caregivers, ultimately allowing them to provide patients with better care.”

The HeartStart Intrepid monitor and defibrillator can be used across various emergency settings in the hospital, allowing clinicians to assess the patient and deliver the appropriate treatment, including defibrillation if a patient is suffering a sudden cardiac arrest. The cloud-based IntelliSpace Connect data management solution helps set the stage for coordinated care across the patient’s clinical care journey. IntelliSpace Connect supports the integration of emergency event data into electronic patient care reporting (ePCR) and electronic medical records (EMR/EHR) for event documentation.

Designed to be lightweight, portable and rugged, the Philips HeartStart Intrepid can endure both the rigors of emergency medical service (EMS) use and the physical demands of the Emergency Department, as well intra-hospital transport. It offers comprehensive vital patient monitoring parameters and diagnostic measurements to speed triage and help clinicians determine the best course of care. To assist in the delivery of quality CPR, the Intrepid also offers the QCPR solution which provides integrated CPR feedback and guidance for both compressions and ventilations. In addition, with the HeartStart Intrepid, Philips introduces the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Advisory, a unique feature based on key patient vital sign assessment to provide visual guidance to help prevent serious complications in patients with suspected TBI.

Powered by Philips HealthSuite, a cloud platform, IntelliSpace Connect provides an option for hospitals through a Software-as-a-Service model, and can be accessed through a browser.
