Spacelabs Healthcare Introduces New Application Suite ICS G2 at the 35th Annual National Teaching Institute and Critical Care Exposition in Chicago (May 3-8, 2008)

Clinical Synchronization Speeds Care Decisions

ISSAQUAH, WA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - Spacelabs Healthcare, a pioneer in the field of patient monitoring, has introduced the newest advance in its clinical application suite, the ICS G2. Designed in partnership with clinicians, the ICS G2 offers improved efficiency and information flow, working the way that nurses want to work.

"In developing the ICS G2, we applied clinical logic to the presentation of data, creating a tool that works the way our users do," said Joe Davin, Group President, North American Operations. "For example, the data is clinically synchronized so that different views of the same event provide more complete information enabling faster clinical decisions."

The ICS G2 is a completely integrated application suite that makes patient data accessible anywhere on the hospital network. It creates a single consolidated patient record, featuring a series of views that permit the clinician to zero in on precisely the information needed to understand a critical event or to see the big picture. Trends can be custom-configured, alarm events can be reviewed at the touch of a button, and treatment interventions can be evaluated with its "smart disclosure" and built-in Holter analysis features. All of these benefits are available anywhere in the hospital, the doctor's networked office or home.

As Spacelabs Healthcare celebrates 50 years of innovation in 2008, the ICS G2 continues a tradition of clinical and technological excellence. It is specifically designed to help clinicians help their patients by automating documentation, minimizing errors and presenting accurate, easily-viewed information.
