Caretaker Continuous Non-Invasive Blood Pressure & Wireless Vital Signs Monitor Receives additional FDA Clearance for New Features
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA May 1, 2017 Caretaker Medical, maker of the innovative CareTaker® Finger-Cuff Wireless Patient Monitoring Platform for Continuous Non-Invasive Blood Pressure (CNIBP) and vital signs has received FDA Clearance for expanded features including Respiration Rate, Remote Data Viewing, and Automatic Self-Calibration.
Already recognized as an FDA-Cleared wireless monitor for measuring ICU Quality Continuous Beat-by-Beat Blood Pressure and Heart Rate in a non-invasive wearable form-factor, the expanded features allow clinicians to have an even more comprehensive view of patient physiological status. The Caretakers™ ability to automatically calibrate itself without needing manual calibration from bulky external arm cuffs streamlines clinician workflow and improves patient comfort. Moreover, Caretakers™ ability to send vital signs data to other remote and real-time clinical monitoring platforms using industry standard communication protocols allows the device to be integrated into mixed vendor environments.
The expanded FDA clearance for multi-parameter vital signs monitoring and use without the need for manual calibration are clear differentiators for the CareTaker wireless monitoring platform, said Jeff Pompeo, President and CEO of Caretaker Medical. The CareTaker sets a new standard in Continuous BP and vitals monitoring in terms of patient comfort and mobility as well as clinician productivity and automated workflow.
