Hospitals around the world have a common challenge: provide the best patient care possible in the face of tough financial constraints. Patient populations are growing, which puts increased demands on already overburdened caregivers. By working closely with hospitals for more than 120 years, Dräger Medical understands the complexity of acute care delivery and offers patient monitors specifically to meet the clinical needs in this environment.
An international leader in the fields of medical and safety technology, Dräger products protect, support and save lives. Dräger’s expertise, close collaboration with customers, continuous innovation and outstanding quality provides essential monitoring capabilities at an exceptional value.
Ports International, local distributor for Dräger Medical recently provided the physicians and nursing staff at Princess Margaret Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with important training on their new Dräger Infinity Cardiac Monitors.
The Dräger Infinity Patient Monitor offers essential monitoring capability at an exceptional value and meets the needs of a variety of care environments for adult, paediatric and neonatal patients – including Intensive Care Units, Operating Rooms, Emergency Departments and Neonatal Intensive Care Units.
The monitors provide a clear view of the vital patient data, and the quick access menu, hard keys and rotary knob enable easy navigation for the clinician. While many vendors offer patient monitors, Dräger goes a step further.
They offer a complete departmental solution with their complementary therapy devices – including ventilators, anesthesia machines, incubators, and baby warmers.
As stated by Michele Rassin of Ports International, “Patient safety is a top priority, and finding ways to enhance it is constantly on the minds of nurses, physicians and hospital leadership. Ports International is pleased to have offered this training with Dräger to further support patient safety and direct patient care.”
The intensive two day training included enhanced communication of critical patient alarms, optimizing patient care and safety, efficiency gains from having the ability to immediately identify and prioritize patient needs, and improved risk management analysis capability through audit trails of alarm notification, documentation, response and acknowledgement.
