Sphere Medical confirms compatibility of Proxima™ bedside blood gas monitoring system with leading global patient monitor player

 

~ Sphere enhances point-of-care connectivity functionality of Proxima acute respiratory and metabolic monitoring device in critical care settings ~

 

Cambridge, UK – 29 June 2017 - Sphere Medical Holding plc (AIM: SPHR.L), an innovative point-of-care monitoring and diagnostic devices company, announces that its Proxima™ bedside blood gas monitoring system is now compatible with Philips IntelliVue Patient Monitoring Systems through the Philips IntelliBridge Interface Module.

 

Sphere Medical’s Proxima is an acute respiratory and metabolic monitoring system used in critical care settings which supports proactive patient care.  It enables rapid and frequent blood gas, glucose and electrolyte measurements directly at the bedside without the caregiver leaving the patient. Philips compatibility means that Proxima’s results can be recorded and displayed alongside other critical monitoring information, such as blood pressure, ECG, EEG, respiratory rate, cardiac output and temperature. Such consolidated information gives a comprehensive patient overview, enhancing patient management. With the increasing adoption of electronic data record systems in critical care settings, Philips compatibility will also give Proxima customers a very simple means of integrating their data into electronic medical record systems (EMR).

 

Sphere Medical’s latest Proxima 4 system is currently being sold directly into the critical care market in the UK, Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium and via distributors in Italy, Spain and Austria.

“We are extremely pleased with the confirmation that Proxima is now compatible with Philips IntelliVue patient monitors. Many of our customers use Philips monitoring and data management systems and this connectivity further helps the practical implementation of Proxima as an acute respiratory and metabolic monitoring device in critical care settings. We look forward to offering this enhanced compatibility with our latest Proxima 4 system to hospitals across Europe.”
