Spacelabs adds patient monitoring gear to Georgia hospital
Athens Regional Medical Center (ARMC) in Athens, Ga., has purchased additional patient monitoring equipment from Spacelabs Healthcare.

In July, ARMC purchased patient monitoring equipment for their critical care unit (CCU) and cardiovascular intensive care unit (CVICE). Products included Spacelabs’ modular Ultraview SL2800-series bedside monitors, which offer monitoring and workstation performance. EtCO2 monitoring will be provided by an Ultraview Multigas analyzer. The Ultraview SL3800 central monitors capture monitored data from hardwired and wireless patient monitors as well as telemetry units and display the data at a central workstation. ARMC also purchased ICS G2, an integrated application suite that makes its CCU and CVICE patient data accessible anywhere on the hospital network as a single, consolidated patient record.

With the new order, ARMC will equip its main and labor and delivery operating rooms, preoperative short stay unit, endoscopy care area, outpatient surgery center, post anesthesia care unit and other perioperative care areas with medical technology from Spacelabs. The medical center will also upgrade their existing Spacelabs preoperative surgery with new technology.

The new order encompasses a range of Spacelabs patient monitoring technology, including Ultraview 2400, Ultraview 2600, Ultraview 2700 and Ultraview 2800 monitors; Ultraview 3800 central monitors; Ultraview Multigas analyzers; and ICS G2 application suite with HL7 interface.

Part of Athens Regional Health Services, ARMC is a 315-bed regional referral center, serving a 17-county area in northeast Georgia.
