The Welch Allyn Connex Integrated Wall System (IWS) incorporates nearly 100 years of innovation into one unit. The system features traditional Welch Allyn physical assessment instruments—an integrated ophthalmoscope and otoscope—combined with twenty-first century vital signs assessment technology from the Connex® Vital Signs Monitor (VSM). The Connex VSM is a full-color, touch screen vital signs device providing automatic measurements such as heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, pulse oximetry, weight and Total Hemoglobin; manual parameters such as respiration, height and pain level; and modifiers such as body position, O2 therapy details and others.
By incorporating Connex VSM technology into the Connex IWS, the wall unit can be configured for spot-check, monitoring with intervals or triage modes and is ideal for sites using an EMR or HIS (hospital information system). The Connex IWS significantly reduces time spent on manual transcription and instances of human error and has the ability to automatically transfer data to an EMR. Plus, it offers the ability for patient vital signs to be viewed anytime, anywhere on a network. The customizable wall system supports both Welch Allyn and its’ manufacturing partners’ technology, and its’ open architecture makes it a great investment, as upgrades and new technology can be added as they become available.
