Outpatient surgery monitor.

Welch Allyn, Inc., introduces the Welch Allyn(r) [Atlas.sup.TM] monitor, the first affordable monitor designed and built for the specific requirements of conscious sedation and IV anesthesia monitoring. Basic features include ECG, pulse oximetry, and noninvasive blood pressure monitoring. The Atlas has an automatic blood pressure mode with a choice of seven measurement intervals, programmable alarms, and built-in memory for up to 144 sets of measurement data. It can also be configured with optional instrumentation to monitor respiration rate, temperature, and end-tidal carbon dioxide.

The 12-lb. device is easy to set up and operate and easy to transport. It comes with an optional integrated thermal printer for trend analysis and documentation. There is an optional battery available for short-term transport or low power conditions, and an RS232 interface with nurse call capability.
