Welch Allyn Introduces Connectivity-Ready Electrocardiograph in Canada
Welch Allyn, a leading medical diagnostic device company that specializes in helping clinicians improve patient outcomes, today announced the availability of a new connectivity-ready electrocardiograph device in Canada. The Welch Allyn CP 150™ offers flexible report formatting, intuitive design and functionality in addition to administering patient tests and managing information via a touch screen, color display. It can also interface with the Welch Allyn CardioPerfect ® Workstation to connect, manage and share patient information.
“Connected and portable devices are important for healthcare providers in a variety of clinical settings,” said Peter Glocker, senior manager, cardiopulmonary products at Welch Allyn. “The CP 150 has a number of connectivity options to help manage and share patient information. Additionally, this easy-to-use device will allow clinicians across Canada to do more with less because they can administer tests, interface with other systems and help reduce data documentation time. This flexible ECG offer the best of both worlds—simple, accurate testing and intuitive data management capabilities.” The user-friendly Welch Allyn CP 150 was designed to help improve practice workflow. The seven-inch, color touch screen display with an integrated user interface eliminates the need to track between the display and keyboard and allows for fast and easy entry of patient data helping to save time and reduce errors. A lead quality display is also incorporated into the touch screen, which helps easily and efficiently identify lead connection problems. An instant-on feature powers up the device quickly to take an ECG at a moment’s notice and the advanced filters provide optimal ECG trace quality to ensure accurate readings. The CP 150 can be transported easily with the battery-powered operation and up to 100 test results can be stored on the device.
ECG results can also be transferred directly to a USB memory stick for additional storage or uploaded to the practice’s data management system through the Welch Allyn CardioPerfect Workstation.
“This device offers tangible benefits like the integrated user interface with the touch screen display, instant-on features and programmable report formats,” added Glocker. “But, it’s the resulting tangible benefits like ease-of-use, reliability and speed that clinicians and patients will appreciate the most.”
