CoroNet erases the boundary between Bedside monitoring and Telemetry. Its unique wireless concept meets the need for greater flexibility in cardiac nursing. With uncompromising diagnostic quality of measured parameters, a patient can leave the hospital bed and walk around in the ward.

CoroNet also erases the boundaries between monitoring sessions throughout the treatment chain. A single record can be kept from the start of monitoring in the ambulance, though initial evaluation at arrival to the hospital, during the PCI procedure, in the intensive care after surgery, to the ambulatory monitoring while attending rehabilitation.

CoroNet – main benefits

  • Specially developed for cardiac care
  • Flexibility for the patient
  • Convenience and control for the treating clinician
  • Security in the data quality for clinical assessment

Bedside monitor

The CoroNet Bedside monitor collects and analyzes vital patient data from the measuring units, sets off alarms and stores the information in a medical-certified panel computer. All functions are easily accessible through a logical and intuitive interface using on-screen touch controls. The monitor connects to the CoroNet Central station, archive and workstation via a LAN.

Key features of the bedside monitor

  • ECG monitoring with advanced arrhythmia detection and alarm
  • Automatically starts MIDA analysis
  • SpO2 monitoring with plethysmographic waveform
  • NIBP displaying the last 10 values
  • IBP displaying up to four measured values
  • End tidal CO2, Respiration and Temperature
  • Storage of all measurement data over 72 hours
  • Running ECG analysis displayed in waveform
  • Display of averaged 12-lead ECG
  • Trends on all measured parameters
    Alarm watch displaying severe alarms from all monitors
  • Transfer of monitoring between Bedside monitors, Telemetry units, Transport monitors and MobiMed units

It is possible to open the Workstation on a Bedside while monitoring is running, to review – in detail – events that have occurred, also for other patients. By this, it is not just possible to see the ongoing ECG for an alarming patient but, as an extended alarm watch, review cause of alarm – without leaving the patient.

Telemetry

The telemetric function is equivalent to the Bedside monitor function both with respect to functionality and quality.

Current patient surveillance with monitors and telemetric systems are often done using two separate systems. CoroNet unites these two into one system.

The unit that is used to monitor ECG and SpO2, is also used as a telemetric broadcast device. If contact with the bedside monitor is lost when the patient is up and moving, the measuring unit is automatically reconfigured to simultaneously broadcast to the Bedside monitor via access points. This information is also routed to the Central station and archive.

When the Bedside monitor is no longer needed, measurement data is routed to a telemetry server. This way the monitoring process remains uninterrupted, and all data is stored in the same file.

Desired areas can be covered by installing an adequate number of access points. CoroNet Telemetry enables monitoring of active and moving patients with diagnostic grade MIDA technique. Bluetooth based telemetry ensures sufficient bandwidth while keeping the power supply at an acceptable level. Bluetooth access points are connected to and receive their power supply through the LAN.

Transport monitor

All collected data can be transferred to the CoroNet Transport monitor via LAN. The Transport monitor is connected to the patient measuring units ensuring an uninterrupted patient monitoring. Upon destination arrival, all data can be transferred to the specific Bedside monitor or Telemetry station located at the new treatment site. All functions in the Bedside monitor are also present in the Transport monitor.

Key features of the transport

  • ECG monitoring with advanced arrhythmia interpretation and alarm
  • Automatically starts MIDA analysis
  • SpO2 monitoring with plethysmographic waveform
  • NIBP displaying the last 10 values
  • IBP displaying up to four measured values
  • End tidal CO2
  • Temperature
  • Storage of all measurement data over 72 hours
  • Running ECG analysis displayed in waveform
  • Display of averaged 12-lead ECG
  • Trends on all measured parameters
  • Alarm watch function displaying severe alarms from all bedside monitors and Telemetry units
  • Transfer of monitoring/data between Bedside monitors, Telemetry units, Transport monitors and MobiMed units

PCI

To meet the special requirements of PCI laboratories, Ortivus has developed a special PCI monitor. In addition to monitoring of ECG, SpO2 and invasive blood pressure, the monitor is equipped with special functions suited for PCI related work.

Examples of these features are:

  • ST-trends updating every 5-10 seconds
  • Display of averaged 12-lead ECG every 5-10 seconds
  • FFR measurement
  • LAN connection with other CoroNet units
  • Storage of information in the same database as other CoroNet information

All information is presented to the user on a screen next to the transillumination screens.

Central station

The Central station displays and handles alarms; visual and audible notification, set-up and silencing. The Central station can be configured in many ways to suit the needs and preferences of the staff; hide or display trends, split screen etc. Pager systems can be connected with the Central station to notify staff of any alarms, affected patients and bed numbers.

Up to 36 patients can be monitored simultaneously when using a Central station. A maximum of 4 active screens can be linked to each Central station, along with several slave monitors. Linking several Central stations together further increases the number of patients that can simultaneously be monitored.

Clinical workstation

The Clinical workstation is used when deeper analysis of monitoring data stored in the archive is required, and for integration with other systems.
An arbitrary number of workstations can be connected to the system, enabling several people to work with patient data simultaneously. Such an example is the mobile workstation based on WLAN technology, for use during doctor’s rounds. Another example would be placement of a workstation connected to a projector or large screen.

Key features of the Clinical workstation

  • Arrhythmia report, sorted by time or type
  • Trend data on all measured parameters
  • Averaged ECG every minute
  • Arrhythmia navigation with up to 16 waveforms, meaning that 12-lead ECG and four additional waveforms can be stored.
  • Vector loop analysis
  • Store patient data for re-examination
  • Possibility to copy and store data on to CD-ROM, DVD or other media
  • Possibility to export 12-lead ECG to ECG databases such as MUSE or Megacare
  • Possibility to review patients located on other wards/hospitals linked to the same LAN
