SHENZHEN, China, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On 18th February, via live web seminar, Mindray Medical International launched the new BeneHeart R12 electrocardiograph, its advanced solution for cardiology and ECG diagnosis, to its employees across the world.
Mindray's ECG Team Leader, Dr Shen Luo, said: "We conducted numerous Voice of Customer surveys, shaping the development of the BeneHeart R12. Its innovative features satisfy users' demands brilliantly."
The R12's user-friendly and intuitive panel design features include the 8-inch high resolution colour display, soft and hard functional keys, qwerty keyboard layout and anatomical design. The R12 also has a 216mm A4 and letter size thermal paper printer with a patented, paper tray slide mechanism making routine paper loading a breeze.
The R12 re-analysis function enables the entering of patient information after taking the ECG automatically adjusted interpretation into account for age, gender, pathology and therapeutic profile. With a 6.5-second start-up time, the R12 is around 5 times quicker than many ECGs on the market. While portability is particularly important to address ICU/CCU/EICU needs, the compact and lightweight R12 also claims impressive storage (800-record capacity) and long battery life (400 reports per battery charge duration).
Equipped with the globally recognised Glasgow 12-lead analysis, the R12 offers unrivaled diagnostic confidence and accuracy. Diagnosis can be made in adults and children from birth upwards and the V4R (C4R) electrode placement is ideal for paediatric patients. The R12 Critical Values feature highlights warning traces to aid rapid responses to potentially urgent issues like bradycardia, tachycardia, acute ischaemia and myocardial infarction.
While users also highlighted the importance of connectivity, the R12 features many ports via USB drives -- external printing and ECG files can be sent to any wired or wireless ECG data management system, seamlessly linking in with the EMR or HER. As a paperless technology, the R12 is environmentally sound conserving both expensive ECG paper and energy. The preview feature displays an ECG report image on screen which can be sent as a file to an ECG management system, enabling electronic review of ECGs.
Richard Yang, Mindray VP of International Marketing, added, "The R12 launch was the first time Mindray has used this new media route for such a purpose. It was such a success that the company plans to do webinars and live streams for future launches of our powerful and innovative technologies and to deliver training to global medical communities."
