FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nihon Kohden America, a market leader in patient monitoring innovation, now gives hospital staff faster access to patient information, especially if patients are experiencing adverse events, with the introduction of its first iPad and iPhone application. Nihon Kohden America designed the app to allow hospital staff to take its Defensive and Enterprise Monitoring™ strategy mobile anywhere a clinician requires immediate access to patients near real-time and retrospective data. The innovative mobile monitoring strategy is unique in that it lets medical personnel monitor and track multiple patients’ trends on vital statistics on a continuous basis. The app operates with both Nihon Kohden’s Enterprise Monitoring System and its award-winning Prefense — Early Detection and Notification System, which now permits hospitals to monitor opioid-drip patients for end tidal CO2 (EtCO2), oxygen saturation (SpO2), respiration rate, heart rate and noninvasive blood pressure.
