Mindray (www.mindray.com) is a global provider of medical devices and solutions including patient monitoring and life support, invitro diagnostics, and medical imaging equipment. Mindray has one of the largest medical device manufacturing facilities in China.
Vital signs monitors are used to measure basic physiologic parameters and track the status of low-acuity patients (patients found in medical-surgical areas, emergency departments, and ambulatory care centers) so that clinicians can be informed of changes in a patient's condition. Depending on their configuration, these units can measure and display numerical data for noninvasive blood pressure (NIBP), pulse rate, pulse oximetry (SpO2), and body temperature. NIBP is an essential indicator of the patient's physiologic condition. As one of the most frequently used diagnostic tests, it indicates changes in blood volume, the pumping efficiency of the heart, and the resistance of the peripheral vasculature. Pulse oximetry provides a noninvasive and continuous means of monitoring the oxygen saturation percentage of hemoglobin in arterial blood, reducing the need for arterial puncture and laboratory blood-gas analysis. Electronic thermometers electronically measure body temperature at oral, rectal, and axillary sites; periodic temperature measurements are used as primary diagnostic indicators.
Low-acuity vital signs monitoring can be accomplished in two ways: spot check and continuous. Spot check monitors are primarily used for measuring a patient's physiologic parameters at predefined intervals. These devices take a single set of vitals from a patient at any given time and can be used on multiple patients over the course of a single shift.
Continuous vital signs monitors are used for measuring a patient's vital signs over a continuous period of time. These monitors may feed information to a central monitor, which a clinician may use for retrospective analysis of the patient's physiological trends before any critical event(s) occur. One goal of continuously monitoring vital signs in low-acuity areas is to enhance patient safety by alerting caregivers to problems, or the potential for problems, that can lead to patient deterioration. Another aim is to address limitations of spot-check monitoring, such as the potential to miss trending information during the gap between patient spot checks, or imprecise measurement methods at the time of the previous spot check. Certain spot-check monitors have an option to use the device in a continuous mode.
