US company Protocol Systems launched a low-cost central monitoring station for networking its Propaq portable patient monitors at the Medica 99 trade fair in Dusseldorf. The central station, made by Vidco, can network up to eight Propaq monitors and is up to 60% less expensive than the high-end Acuity central monitoring system which Protocol already markets. The low-cost system could be used in cardiac cath labs and small emergency rooms. The Beaverton, Orgeon-based company's Pryon OEM division also launched a CO2 monitoring subsystem for patient monitoring device manufacturers.
