Nellcor SP02 Modules

So Precious were able to purchase two modules for the Nellcor SPO2 Monitors at a cost of £712 thanks to the fundraising efforts of three ladies from Dental Services, Falkirk Community Hospital.  Karen, Carrie and Sharon ran the The Bupa Great Edinburgh Run 10k in October 2012.

These modules enable the staff to make dual measurements on individual patients on the existing monitors, which improve overall safety.

"Continuous monitoring of oxygen saturation through pulse oximetry technology improves clinical decision-making affecting patient safety,” said Robert J. White, President, Respiratory and Monitoring Solutions, Covidien. “The single parameter module enables compatibility of Nellcor OxiMax SpO2 monitoring with Philips’ market-leading IntelliVue monitors. This new product offering underscores the   commitment of Covidien to patient care across all areas of the hospital, from the general care ward to critical care areas, such as the intensive care unit and neonatal care ward.”
