HeartStart Intrepid allows caregivers to evaluate and treat patients in demanding medical emergencies. The device is available in Europe and select markets in Asia and Africa.
“First responders don’t often know what to expect when they arrive at the scene of an emergency, so they have to be equipped and ready to handle anything that may come up in the field,” therapeutic care business leader Arman Voskerchyan said in a press release. “A full range of monitoring capabilities and decision support tools let emergency staff quickly evaluate and treat patients in life-threatening situations. Enhanced connectivity between care settings helps to streamline communication and improve clinical workflow for caregivers, ultimately allowing them to provide patients with better care.”
Philips’s HeartStart Intrepid is lightweight, portable and rugged and can be used in emergency medical service, emergency departments and intra-hospital transport. It features vital patient monitoring parameters and diagnostic measurements to help clinicians decide the best care plan for each patient. It can help clinicians deliver better quality CPR with feedback and guidance for compressions and ventilations. It also features the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Advisory that is based on key patient vital sign assessment to give visual guidance and prevent complications in patients suspected to have TBI.
The HeartStart Intrepid monitor/defibrillator’s IntelliSpace Connect is a cloud-based data management solution that can help clinicians set up coordinated care for patients in the critical care setting. The system supports the integration of emergency event data into electronic patient care reporting and electronic medical records to give doctors accurate event documentation for billing, according to the company. It also offers secure data storage for post-event review.
