Philips unveils IntelliVue mobile viewer for PDAs
Royal Philips Electronics introduced its IntelliVue mobile viewer application, which provides physicians with patient data and alerts through a personal digital assistant (PDA) device, at the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) National Teaching Institute & Critical Care Exposition held this week in Chicago.

Philips said the mobile viewer application can be downloaded onto an existing PDA and receives patient data wirelessly via a customer supplied 802.11 infrastructure for secure convenience. 

Patient information is displayed in an easier-to-read format including large numeric view, six waveforms and up to 10 seconds of data can be displayed. Clinicians can capture and store screen shots for future use, according to the company.

The mobile viewer application is supported via Windows Mobile 5.0 or Window Mobile 6.0 Classic and Professional, Philips said.
