Royal Philips has released the IntelliVue X3 patient monitor in Europe. The device is designed for portable, uninterrupted monitoring during in-hospital transport and at the bedside. It provides an intuitive smart-phone-style operation that quickly and easily enables continuous monitoring during transport for the most critical patients, according to Philips.

IntelliVue X3 integrates seamlessly into the existing IntelliVue Patient Monitoring system, including bedside and transport monitors, the clinical network and Philips family of central stations.

Data from the IntelliVue X3 is also integrated into mobile applications, the hospital network, and interfaces that connect the system to other medical devices and to the hospital’s electronic medical record (EMR) system. As part of this larger Patient Monitoring portfolio, X3 assists clinicians in providing the best possible care for patients across all levels of acuity and supporting institution-wide standardization.

“The challenge of delivering care efficiently and effectively within hospitals’ acute environments continues to increase,” said Felix Baader, business leader, Patient Care and Monitoring Solutions, Philips. “Health systems need accurate and transparent information and processes to help clinical staff make faster, more consistent decisions based on patient conditions and history. With the development of the IntelliVue X3, we’re aiming to ensure that data isn’t being lost during transitions and that we’re able to better equip clinicians with the information they need, when they need it.”

In addition to providing complete data records, IntelliVue X3 provides a comprehensive and scalable set of market-leading clinical measurements, ranging from basic to advanced monitoring. It allows for advanced monitoring during stationary and transport situations, including dual invasive blood pressure, built in mainstream CO2, a choice between three SpO2 technologies and state-of-the-art ECG/Arrhythmia.

Through its integration with the IntelliVue Patient Monitoring system, the IntelliVue X3 expands on Philips’ continuing commitment and leadership in patient monitoring, providing an enterprise-level solution comprised of high data security IT products. The IntelliVue X3 has received the CE Mark in Europe.

The device is pending 510(k) clearance and not yet available for sale in the US.
