Royal Philips today said its patient monitors MX750 and MX850 have received FDA 510(k) clearance.
The Amsterdam-based company’s patient monitors first received emergency use authorization during the pandemic in 2020. The company designed them to support scalability, alarm management, cybersecurity and enhanced infection prevention in the hospital.
Philips’ patient monitors are an integrated part of the company’s acute patient management system and allow hospitals to standardize at a system level to customize the care for individual patients through a virtual or decentralized method. The monitors have full modularity and are interoperable with other devices and applications, including Philips’ Patient Information Center iX and IntelliVue XDS software.
“Continuous patient monitoring plays a vital role in overall patient safety while providing clinicians and caregivers with the holistic view they need to best support their patients and manage their workload,” Sandra Lesenfants, general manager of hospital patient monitoring at Philips, said in a news release. “Philips Patient Monitors IntelliVue MX750 and MX850 are our most advanced patient monitors and a key part of our modular portfolio of hardware, software, services and consumables that can be tailored to provide integrated monitoring solutions that meet the individual needs of each healthcare provider.”
Data from the MX750 and MX850 can move seamlessly through Philips’ Acute Care Telehealth command center to simplify clinical workflow and help care teams manage patient care on a personalized level. The data is fed to a hospital’s electronic medical records through end-to-end encryption.
Philips designed the monitors to withstand strong hospital-grade disinfectants to minimize hospital-acquired infections without compromising the condition of the device.
“In the ICU, conditions can change quickly, so having access to real-time data is important to ensure signs of deterioration are not missed,” Remko van den Akker, a registered nurse in the intensive care/critical care unit at Adrz Hospital in The Netherlands, said. “Philips’ solutions have helped us to improve the link between essential patient data and our hospital patient data management system and allow us to automatically and securely share data. This level of interoperability has been key for successfully managing our acute care patients.”
