DANVERS, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2000
The Electromedical Division of Siemens Medical Systems, Inc. today unveiled its INFINITY SC 6002XL patient monitor at the American Association American Association refers to one of the following professional baseball leagues:
Of or relating to pediatrics. and neonatal patients in multiple hospital settings.
The latest addition to the INFINITY Patient Monitoring System(TM), the SC 6002XL features a full selection of commonly used parameters in one integrated package: ECG ECG electrocardiogram.
Also called an electrocardiogram, it records the electrical activity of the heart. , respiration, SpO2, pulse, temperature, and invasive and non-invasive blood pressure. The innovative Siemens INFINITY Patient Monitoring System gives caregivers maximum flexibility in distributing functionality, while providing a high level of care both efficiently and cost-effectively. Based on the innovative PICK AND GO(TM) Concept, the INFINITY System frees caregivers to spend more time on direct patient care and less time on equipment management.
The SC 6002XL delivers continuous monitoring throughout the patient care process, eliminating the need for separate, low-acuity transport monitors. Caregivers can monitor the patient at the bedside, or simply pick up the unit from its INFINITY DOCKING STATION (1) A cradle for a portable device that serves to charge the unit and connect it to other sources or destinations. For example, an iPod docking station charges the iPod and connects it to a computer, speakers or TV set. (TM) and go to the ICU ICU intensive care unit.

ICU , OR, ER, or step-down unit -- without changing monitors or cables each time the patient is moved. To ensure patient data collection during transport, a 75-minute battery is standard. The monitor's light weight (7.5 lb. with battery) makes it extremely portable.
The SC 6002XL also provides sidestream and mainstream CO2 measurement using a special pod that can be moved from one monitor to another. This modular approach to monitoring yields significant cost savings by enabling users to purchase only the number of etCO2 pods required by their patient population.
The SC 6002XL offers two-lead ECG display and support of three-, five- or six-lead ECG monitoring. To provide improved monitoring capabilities for cardiac patients, the SC 6002XL supports the Siemens MULTIMED MULTIMED Multimedia Exposure Assessment Model 6 pod, which enables users to monitor two chest (V) leads simultaneously. Like all INFINITY modular patient monitors, the patented ACE (Arrhythmia arrhythmia (ārĭth`mēə), disturbance in the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. Various arrhythmias can be symptoms of serious heart disorders; however, they are usually of no medical significance except in the presence of Classification Expert) algorithm, which screens out artifact A distortion in an image or sound caused by a limitation or malfunction in the hardware or software. Artifacts may or may not be easily detectable. Under intense inspection, one might find artifacts all the time, but a few pixels out of balance or a few milliseconds of abnormal sound to reduce false alarms, is standard on the SC 6002XL.
