Evaluation: Nihon Kohden ZM-5xx Series Integrated-Display Telemetry System
January 13, 2016 | Evaluations & Guidance
The Nihon Kohden ZM-5xx series integrated-display telemetry system—which includes any combination of three ZM-5xx series transmitters and the CNS-6201 central station—is a good choice for most hospitals. The ZM-5xx series transmitters offer the benefits ECRI Institute attributes to transmitters with displays that can help enhance workflow and patient safety compared to conventional telemetry transmitters that have no display.
Our most notable finding was that the ZM-5xx series transmitters can provide additional monitored parameters like respiratory rate, oxygen saturation (SpO2), and noninvasive blood pressure (NIBP), depending on the model selected.
The ZM-5xx series telemetry systemusesany combination ofthree transmitter models: the ZM-540PA (left), ZM-530PA (center), and ZM-520PA (right). Each model provides a different range of monitored parameters.
