Royal Philips Electronics has released the IntelliVue MX40, a wearable patient monitor that can be used for the monitoring of ambulatory patients and during patient transport. The MX40 combines the benefits of the IntelliVue X2 and Philips telemetry into a single, compact wearable monitor.

MX40 helps clinicians to better manage patient alerts and is designed with infection control in mind. The device can be used for patients in a progressive care area or during supervised recovery from an acute event or surgical procedure.

IntelliVue MX40 offers a comprehensive package of benefits including continuous monitoring over a greater range in the hospital, access to the IntelliVue Smart-hopping Network, and a color touch screen display that presents the patient’s name as well as easily accessible vital information such as ECG, SpO2 and non-invasive blood pressure.
