The Vital Signs and Basic Cardiac Monitoring You Need in One Monitor

The Connex Vital Signs Monitor with ECG provides waveform visualization and immediate notification of lethal cardiac arrhythmias at the bedside.

It is designed to help:

  • Closely monitor patients who may be at risk in low-acuity care areas
  • Detect and alarm for asystole, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation at the bedside
  • Leverage one monitoring device for all core low-acuity use cases and clinical needs—from spot-check vitals to interval monitoring to low-acuity procedural monitoring

Protecting Patient Privacy, Data Integrity and Nurses’ Time

Your clinicians need fast access to patient vitals. But hospitals must secure medical devices to protect patient privacy, data integrity and compliance.

That’s why the Welch Allyn Connex family of vital signs devices feature secure access with Imprivata®.

Standardizing Vital Signs Devices at The Ottawa Hospital: A Strategy That Works for Patients and Nurses

“The time savings associated with having a [Connex Vital Signs Monitor] at every bedside was a huge driver of efficiency at the hospital. We built a business case around one device per bedside.”

– Dr. Glen Geiger

Connecting Vital Signs Devices to the EMR

Going One Step Further for Patients and Nurses: Eliminating Manual Vital Signs Documentation to Prioritize Value-Added Care

Understanding the value of nursing efficiency, a large hospital wanted to examine the effects of eliminating manual vital signs documentation in its medical/surgical units. The hospital measured vitals capture and documentation times before and after connecting their Connex® Vital Signs Monitors to the hospital’s EMR. During the study, this hospital wanted to explore the impact of connected devices on nurses' time and value-added care.

Connex® Clinical Surveillance System

Today’s medical/surgical floors are an exposed risk for hospitals. As the some of the most operationally intensive and difficult to manage areas, med/surg floors are home to the majority of hospital patient and complicated caregiver interactions. In addition, these general care floors drive significant hospital revenue.

Introducing the Welch Allyn Connex Clinical Surveillance System. Designed specifically for med/surg environments, this integrated solution allows clinicians to proactively view patient status 24/7, for faster response. It integrates into your hospital’s network infrastructure for ease of deployment, and builds on your existing vital signs workflow.

For Long-Term Care Settings

The Connex Vital Signs Monitor works with PointClickCare® and other long-term care EMRs to help facilities accurately capture and automatically transmit vitals data. The device helps improve:

  • Timeliness and efficiency: Reduce duplication of efforts and delays in entering data. Vitals transmit wirelessly to residents’ electronic records so clinicians have information at their fingertips to help them provide better care. No retyping data. No delays in entry.
  • Quality of care: Proactively improve care plans and address risk management implications with accurate, timely vitals.
  • Accuracy: Wireless connectivity between the CVSM and the electronic medical record can help reduce the opportunity for manual transcription errors.
  • Regulatory and policy compliance: Data is time-stamped and dated, leaving an audit trail for complete accountability.
