Patient vital signs can be collected and displayed on central monitors, using the wireless connection, while patients are being moved within the hospital environment. patient data is monitored and collected through the Spacelabs' Intesys Clinical Suite (ICS) of networked applications.

Spacelabs Healthcare CEO, Mr. Deepak Chopra, said, “The Company is committed to enhancing our wireless monitoring product offering throughout our patient monitoring product line. This is demonstrated with the recent release of the wireless option for the UltraviewSL2400 series of compact monitors and today’s announced release of the UltraviewSL2600. Our goal is to help clinicians stay connected to information so they can remain focused on patient care. The new UltraviewSL 2600 is the next step in supporting this goal.”

The UltraviewSL 2600 has Spacelabs’ proprietary WinDNA software that allows clinicians access to lab, radiology and patient records at the point of care. The larger display screen allows this information and patient data, including all 12 Leads of a 12-Lead ECG, to be displayed clearly at the bedside. It is well-suited to a broad range of environments, including perioperative, emergency and neonatal care departments. The UltraviewSL 2600 is fully network compatible with all existing Spacelabs UltraviewSL, Ultraview and PCMSTM central and bedside monitors.
