ISSAQUAH, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Having received clearance under Section 510(k) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Spacelabs Healthcare is adding the qube patient monitor to its Art of Monitoring portfolio. Inspired by the revolutionary style of the company’s XPREZZON™ patient monitor, qube breaks with tradition to offer a fresh, new perspective in compact monitoring.

“Through the optimal blend of art and technology, qube is designed to create a patient-friendly experience while providing the caregiver with full functionality, accessibility and portability in a compact package”

Small and lightweight – with a battery life that goes the distance – qube offers portability, accessibility and heightened connectivity – perfect for emergency, general/step-down, and post-anesthesia care units. qube is mountable anywhere – wall, bedrail, anesthesia system – and can be detached via a quick-release feature, for immediate mobility. Caregivers can access current, critical patient information, from bedside throughout transport, to provide the ultimate level of patient care.

“Through the optimal blend of art and technology, qube is designed to create a patient-friendly experience while providing the caregiver with full functionality, accessibility and portability in a compact package,” said Nicholas Ong, President of Spacelabs Healthcare.

In 1958, NASA turned to a new company named Spacelabs to resolve the ultimate clinical challenge: wireless monitoring of Gemini astronauts’ vital signs. The company has built on that Telemetry solution with a long history of firsts, innovations and developments. Beginning another half-century of patient-centered, customer-first service, Spacelabs Healthcare has proven to be a valuable extension of clinicians’ care teams.

Spacelabs Healthcare (named so because it originally developed telemetry devices to monitor the vital signs of orbiting astronauts) has recently launched XPREZZON, a patient monitor that pretty much fullfills all the wishes we ever had for a monitor and that also makes some clever use of existing remote desktop technology. It has a sleek, frameless, iPad-like high resolution touchscreen display. It can display custom trends which can be accessed with a single touch, or they can be displayed continuously and arranged to the user’s liking. It has bright LED alarm lights both on the front and the back. For those accustomed to dual-screen desktop set-ups, a second display can be attached to the monitor, acting as a secondary screen for charting and other clinical applications. Under the hood the XPREZZON makes use of an embedded Citrix thin-client, able to connect to any Citrix server already running in the hospital. Spacelabs also hasn’t forgotten about the patients: the monitor has an ambient light sensor that dims its display in low light.

The app can connect to the Xprezzon as well as the UltraviewSL family of patient monitors. Patient data is streamed to the app, but is never processed or saved on the iPad. The app is powered by iTap Mobile, one of the most popular remote desktop apps for iPad, and can indeed also connect to any Windows-based PC for remote access. The app can be downloaded for free and includes a demo of a real-life system.

Spacelabs Healthcare, a subsidiary of OSI Systems, is introducing the qube patient monitor and the Arkon high-performance anesthesia delivery system. Both devices recently received FDA clearance.

The qube is a portable monitor that is very similar to the company’s XPREZZON patient monitor. Essentially it is a small and lightweight version of the XPREZZON, with long battery life and is purposed for emergency, general and post-anesthesia care units. It is mountable in many configurations and can be quickly detached for transport.

The Arkon is a high-performance anesthesia delivery system and that is about as much information as we have. Although the company claims the system is “a game changer” and “an anesthesia workstation enabling anesthesiologists to achieve the perfect balance between practice and patient”, further details are lacking. They do promise to provide leading technology with a user interface that is intuitive and highly customizable according to Deepak Chopra, OSI Systems CEO.
