Royal Philips Electronics announced the release of its new vital signs monitor, the Philips SureSigns VS3. Unlike traditional spot-check monitors, the unit has a large 8.4 inch color LCD display and a simple user interface to make it easier for clinicians to assess patient vital signs information. Designed for use both in and out of the hospital, the monitor is suitable for general care wards, emergency departments, outpatient surgery, and urgent care centers. The versatile design is said to allow clinicians to work more efficiently while providing quality patient care and safety.

The monitor provides easy access to patient information using innovative pop-up screens, fixed keys and icon-based menus. The full-color, backlit screen displays large, easy-to-read numerals that are especially helpful when viewing from a distance or in low light situations. The screen also provides clinicians with the choice of viewing scrollable stored patient records and an optional Sp02 waveform. The unit's measurements include non-invasive blood pressure, pulse oximetry, pulse rate and temperature. With programmable non-invasive blood pressure capabilities, users can create up to five different programs to monitor non-invasive blood pressure at particular intervals based on unit-specific protocols. A standard lithium ion battery and AC power cord clip enhance battery operation and charging performance. Software upgrades are remarkably quick and easy via the USB port and patient data transfer is enabled with HL7 data output through an Ethernet connection. In addition, an optional bar code scanner capable of reading both one and two-dimensional bar codes makes patient ID entry fast and accurate. The design is also said to makes the monitor easier to support. Replacement parts are compatible with the SureSigns VM monitors to help streamline parts inventory management and repair.
