Covidien introduces the Infinity MCable with Nellcor OxiMax technology as an integrated component of the Dräger Infinity Acute Care System in Europe.

The integration of advanced pulse oximetry technology/clinician-controlled alarm management from Covidien with portable patient monitoring devices from Dräger provides clinicians with monitoring technology to optimize patient care, as well as a technological solution to improve hospital efficiency and reduce the risk of human error.

Also included in the system is the portable Infinity M540 monitor, which benefits from the integration in two ways: the addition of Nellcor OxiMax specialty pulse oximetry sensors and Nellcor SatSeconds alarm management technology.
