Networked* for workflow
The HeartStart MRx connects to the IntelliVue Clinical Network via a LAN cable or wireless medical transmission service (WMTS) radio.
HeartStart MRx and the IntelliVue Clinical Network Wired and wireless networking capability* connects the HeartStart MRx to the IntelliVue Clinical Network. This means that waveforms, vitals, and alarms from HeartStart MRx stream in real-time to the IntelliVue Information Center and can be reviewed using a range of Clinical Review Applications on the IntelliVue Information Center. Clinicians can monitor and silence alarms from the IntelliVue Information Center. Patients monitored by a HeartStart MRx in a chest pain room, in the emergency department, or at the cardiac cath lab, for example, have the added safety of surveillance at the central station.

The IntelliVue Clinical Network centralizes patient information, streamlining documentation and reporting. For regulatory reporting such as the Joint Commission’s
mandate for sentinel events, HeartStart MRx’s networking capability ensures continuous streaming of patient data to the IntelliVue Information Center for inclusion in the patient chart.
Bi-directional information flow means that patient data can be entered at either the bedside or central station. The HeartStart MRx can admit, discharge, and transfer patients so that the data moves with the patient. The network is also able to adjust the HeartStart MRx time clock to ensure synchronization with the clinical network.
Because the HeartStart MRx shares the same algorithms, parameters, and medical consumables as other Philips patient monitors, patients do not require re-cabling at handoffs, which means smoother and faster transitions for care givers and less discomfort for patients.
