The MAC* 5500 HD incorporates new
tools for ECG acquisition, which help provide
confident clinical decisions with a three-step solution that delivers on speed
- Detect pacemaker pulses more
accurately1, reducing the risk of treatment contraindicated
for paced patients.
- Get advanced interpretation of
paced rhythms with the Marquette* 12SL program, which can detect
and report the underlying rhythm, increasing the breadth of decision support
- Clearly visualize and annotate pacer pulses through the
MUSE* v8 Cardiology Information System, which provides a dedicated
pace-annotation channel. This helps to reduce the need to identify pacer pulses
within the ECG signal, supporting efficient diagnosis.
Get clearer data:
- The CAM HD acquisition module
reduces noise and artefact for clearer ECG tracings.
- Enhanced clarity improves the
system’s ability to accurately detect the presence of pacemaker pulses and can
decrease the need to redo ECGs due to poor data quality.
Get configurable critical values:
- Speed triage and treatment with
onscreen and printed notifications.
- Streamline workflow by reducing
time-consuming manual identification of critical values.
- Consistently report critical
conditions to help support patient safety goals.
