JERUSALEM and NEEDHAM, Massachusetts, October 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oridion Systems Ltd. - (SWX: ORIDN) is launching at this week's American Society of Anesthesiologists Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA its total solution Microstream(R) Monitoring System (MSM(TM)), powered by the Bernoulli(R) Enterprise system. The MSM system, a wireless technology for continuous central station monitoring, is the only fully integrated ventilation and oxygenation remote patient monitoring system that directly responded to the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) recommendation for improved Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) recommendation for improved ventilation and oxygenation monitoring for patients receiving patient controlled analgesia.
Included in the 2006 APSF recommendations was the endorsement of remote access to alarms, especially on the general floor environment where higher patient-to-nurse ratios often do not allow on-going visual contact with the patient as in other areas, such as the intensive care units and emergency room. The MSM system helps improve patient safety because it instantaneously alerts clinicians via wireless technology that a patient is in respiratory distress.
With the MSM system, clinicians have the benefit of closely monitoring not just oxygenation status (oxygen carried in the blood), but also the essential ventilation parameter - end-tidal carbon dioxide. Clinical studies have demonstrated conclusively that carbon dioxide monitoring is the earliest indication of a change in a patient's ventilation.
The MSM powered by Bernoulli is the only central monitoring system that supports the full range of Oridion capnography monitoring products, including the Capnostream(TM) 20 and the patented Microstream FilterLine(R) sets for CO2 sampling.
Gerry Feldman, President of Oridion Capnography, Inc. said, "With this
system we have been able to deliver information about respiration and
ventilation that has
