Covidien has made its NellCor OxiMax technology available on Dräger's Infinity acute care system in Europe. Dräger's device integrates patient monitoring, therapy and IT across the whole healthcare system, and includes the portable Infinity M540 monitor. The new technology will add Nellcor OxiMax speciality pulse oximetry sensors and Nellcor SatSeconds alarm management technology to the Infinity system. Pulse oximetry is used to noninvasively measure patients' oxygenation saturation levels, while SatSeconds will generate “smart alarms” based on the severity of desaturation.
