ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei Group company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, announced today that it has launched its new remote view technology on the X Series® monitor/defibrillator developed for EMS agencies.
Remote view capability on the X Series allows a clinician to view the X Series screen remotely while a patient is being monitored. The new technology permits a clinician to see two waveforms and the patient’s vitals, including the patient’s temperature, heart rate, SpO2, and end-tidal CO2. The remote clinician is also able to view 12-lead snapshots and trend reports.
“ZOLL is proud to offer remote view capabilities, which are a critical component of patient care in today’s environment,” said ZOLL CEO Jonathan A. Rennert. “This new technology can help minimize clinician exposure to COVID-19 and prevent patients from entering a hospital setting unnecessarily, where they could be exposed to the virus.”
“Remote view is also a critical tool for EMS agencies following the ET3 model, where advice from a specialist is required to determine where to transport, as well as for community paramedicine/mobile integrated healthcare (MIH) programs,” Mr. Rennert added. “In emergency situations, it is paramount that first responders and clinicians share real-time critical care data to help improve patient outcomes.”
