PHILIPS INTELLIVUE MX800
The Philips IntelliVue MX800 patient monitoring system provides immediate access to comprehensive patient information directly at the monitor. In addition to displaying and recording traditional data such as patient vital signs, the IntelliVue MX800 offers direct access to patient information from almost any system on a hospital’s IT infrastructure.
The MX800 also enables applications to run natively on the embedded informatics platform while keeping the real time patient monitoring separate and protected. This allows clinicians to easily view patient data from sources such as electronic medical records (EMRs), imaging studies and other clinical applications.

Owners can also upgrade to Welch Allyn LED Lamps for greater efficiency. Standard instruments include an integrated otoscope and ophthalmoscope; noninvasive blood pressure; and SureTemp Plus oral, axillary and rectal thermometry with a built-in probe cover holder.
