Traditional vital signs monitors found in most patient hospital rooms can’t be taken into the MRI suite, as that may lead to tragicomic consequences. A patient requiring close monitoring has to be transferred to a specialty monitor attached to a heavy cart that prevents it from being sucked into the bore of the MRI’s magnet, or monitor has to be kept outside of the the MRI room. That’s about to change thanks to FDA clearing the Iradimed 3880 MRI compatible patient vital signs monitoring system.
The patient can now be transported from the ER or ICU, directly to the MRI suite and back, without stopping and without losing the ability to keep a close eye on the vitals.
This is all thanks to IRADIMED being able to replace all magnetic components inside the monitor with non-magnetic ones that allows the device to be completely safe inside a 30,000 gauss magnetic field.
Some of the features of the 3880 monitor, according to IRADIMED:
- Wireless ECG with dynamic gradient filtering
- Wireless SpO2 using Masimo® algorithms
- Respiratory CO2
- Non-invasive blood pressure
- Patient temperature
- Optional advanced multi-gas anesthetic agent unit featuring continuous Minimum Alveolar
- Concentration measurements
