Q:
What is the ViSi Mobile?
A:
The ViSi Mobile is a platform for comprehensive vital signs monitoring that is designed to keep clinicians connected to their patients, whether in or out of bed, or while in transport – “monitoring in motion.” Featuring comfortable body-worn sensors that allow for freedom of movement, the system enables highly accurate, continuous monitoring of all vital signs.
Q:
What is the Indication for Use?
A:
The ViSi Mobile Monitoring System is intended for use by clinicians and medically qualified personnel for single or multi-parameter vital signs monitoring of adult patients. The ViSi Mobile System has received CE mark and is currently FDA cleared for continuous monitoring of ECG, Heart/Pulse Rate, SpO2, Blood Pressure (cuff-based and cuffless on beat-to-beat basis), Respiration Rate and Skin Temperature in hospital-based facilities; including general medical-surgical floors, intermediate care floors, and emergency departments. The ViSi Mobile Monitoring System may be used as standalone devices or networked to a ViSi Mobile Remote Viewer through wireless 802.11 communication.
Q:
What Is the spectrum of vitals captured by ViSi Mobile?
A:
Vital Signs captured by ViSi Mobile, include the following:
    • SpO2 / PR
    • ECG / HR
    • Respiration
    • Skin Temperature
    • Non-invasive Blood Pressure (NIBP)
    • Continuous BP* (cNIBP)
    • Non-invasive, cuffless with A-Line accuracy
    • Posture/Motion*
*Not yet FDA approved
Q:
How is the ViSi Mobile powered?
A:
The ViSi Mobile Monitor and Cuff Module are powered by rechargeable Li-Ion batteries. Sotera Wireless offers an 8-bay or 2-bay charger to recharge devices. The Chest Sensor and Thumb Sensor do not require batteries. The Monitor battery charge will last approximately 16 hours and the Cuff Module will last approximately 30 inflations.
Q:
Can the patient access the monitoring functions?
A:
It is possible to enable an optional clinical authentication code to prevent patient tampering.
Q:
Can the patient shower with the ViSi Mobile?
A:
All components with the exception of the Cuff Module are water proof and can be submerged in water. Because the water on the patient’s skin will cause noise in the vital sign measurements and potentially false alarms, it is not recommended that the patient shower while wearing the ViSi Mobile System. Follow the Pause Monitoring workflow outlined in the User Manual if the patient will need to shower or bathe.
Q:
Will the Monitor identify pacemaker spikes?
A:
Yes, the Monitor’s ECG channel is capable of monitoring patients with an Implanted Pacemaker (PM), Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator (ICD), or Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) device. A vertical dashed line before the P wave (atrial pace), and before the QRS (ventricular pace) indicate paced events. In the case of biventricular pacing (CRT), two vertical dashed lines occur before the QRS.
Q:
Can the Monitor be used during defibrillation?
A:
Yes, the system can be used during defibrillation without damaging or affecting the system. A HR will be displayed within 20 seconds after a defibrillation event. An ECG waveform will be displayed within 5 seconds after a defibrillation event.
Q:
Does the Monitor have clinical and technical alarm capabilities?
A:
Yes. The ViSi Mobile System has been designed with smart alarming to reduce the number of non-actionable alarms per patient. Clinical alarms will annunciate based on configured parameter thresholds and delays set by the clinical staff. The majority of technical alarms (alerts) will only visually annunciate. If the alert has been determined to have high severity, it will also audibly annunciate.
