Bangalore, March 9 2015: Philips India  has  launched the Efficia CM Series  patient monitors in to provide clinicians with access to high-quality of care, despite budget limitations.  The monitors join Philips Efficia ECG100, an electrocardiogram (ECG) acquisition device, and Efficia DFM100, a defibrillator/monitor, both part of the Efficia portfolio, providing cost effective products for resource-limited - facilities.
“Philips has pioneered the area of Critical Care solutions spanning decades. The quality and ruggedness has undoubtedly been the best in the industry”, said Sameer Garde,  President, Philips Healthcare South Asia.
The patient monitors were launched  at the 21st Annual Conference of Indian Society of Critical Care Medicine, held  here last week.
The Efficia CM Series patient monitors provides the same physiological measurements and algorithms that are present in the Philips patient monitors that you know, but designed to be more cost-effective and scalable to the needs of budget-constrained health care facilities. The series, including Efficia CM10, Efficia CM12, Efficia CM100, Efficia CM120, Efficia CM150, can be customized for a variety of patient types, acuity levels and clinical settings, and comes with an intuitive user-interface to ease the burden on busy clinician workflow
Diagnosis in the early stages of cardiac-related illness can help slow the progression of disease, improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs. The Efficia ECG100 acquisition device is a cost-effective cardiograph that measures and displays12-channel ECGs in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The portable product seamlessly functions with application-enabled Android smart phones and tablets, even without WiFi, allowing ECG technicians to quickly and remotely consult with off-site cardiologists and general practitioners. It also allows clinicians to access past ECGs, and email ECG reports to specialists. The device comes with the ability to store high-resolution PDFs, which can be printed on regular A4 paper, instead of the more costly thermal paper. The ability to share and analyze up-to-the-minute medical information with a specialist allows for earlier intervention, and expands access to care for patients in resource-constrained healthcare settings.  More info here
