The MEDUCORE Standard2 monitor and defibrillation unit, developed by WEINMANN Emergency Medical Technology, has been further augmented for emergency medical care, particularly first responders and patient transport operations.
The software update has enabled SpO2 measurements for pulse rate and saturation monitoring, automatic NIBP measurement for easy determination of a patient’s blood pressure, and print and email functionality. Additionally, its 12-lead ECG functionality further enables the Standard2 to provide Advanced Life Support capabilities.
Tobias Kalwa, Head of Production Management, Monitoring/Defibrillation at WEINMANN, commented, “It was especially important to us to support emergency staff in their treatment processes and to make their work as straightforward as possible.”
Medical print and play
Ensuring robust functionality within emergency situations in sub-optimal conditions is paramount within helicopter search and rescue missions, and WEINMANN stressed the time-saving utility of print and email functionality of the MEDUCORE Standard2.
The 12-lead ECG can be stored within the onboard memory, printed through the wireless printer, or emailed directly to the receiving hospital, enabling faster treatment without the need for another 12-lead ECG to be performed on admission.
Kalwa continued, “Sending an email from the device saves valuable time. We want to make room for the key task for paramedics: caring for their patient.”
