ICON

Portable Noninvasive Hemodynamic Monitor
Product Description: 

The ICON™ monitor is a portable, cost-effective monitor for the measurement of cardiac output in neonates, pediatrics, and adults.

Portability: The ICON monitor is the first and only portable battery-operated cardiac output monitor available in the world. The size of the ICON, at 8’’ x 4’’ x 1”, 3 lb, makes it the ideal monitor during medical emergencies, medical transport, and situations where space is limited.

ICU: The handheld ICON comes equipped with a 2 hour battery life that can be used for continuous monitoring, or for routine spot-checks during clinical rounds on multiple patients in the ICU.

OR: The ICON’s portability is ideal for maximizing the space available during preoperative and intraoperative settings. Often in the OR, wires become bundled or entangled; ICON’s patient cable follows a grouping system that allows for easy arrangements for a clutter-free operating room.

Emergency: The size of the ICON allows it to be easily incorporated into any ground or air transport units. Additionally, the 2 hour battery life allows for continuous measurement throughout the transport, as well as for interdepartmental transport/transfers.

Intuitive User Interface

ICON provides an easy-to-use plug and play type interface that is easily understood in stressful situations. Typically, less than one day of training is required for all personal, nurses and doctors alike, to master the use of the ICON Monitor.

There are 4 easy steps to measuring cardiac output:

  1. Attach electrodes
  2. Press “Menu” to access patient management screen
  3. Enter the patient’s height, weight, age
  4. Press “Measure” to start (the green button)

Simple Data Management

iControl

iControl is a dedicated PC program which facilitates the exporting of data, management of ICON software updates, and customization of features.

Bluetooth

ICON provides a wireless connection with any PC that is Bluetooth compatible, which can be used to export data through iControl software. Furthermore, the ICON status report can be printed wirelessly with any compatible Bluetooth printer.

Data Logging

Data logging feature allows for the ICON to streamline data in realtime to a PC at specified intervals of beat to beat, 10s, 30s, 1min or 5min.

Data Integration

VueLink

Utilizing the VueLink technology provided by Phillips, the ICON can sync with most models of IntelliVue patient monitoring systems. This allows for the measurements from the ICON to be displayed alongside other conventional parameters on central patient monitors.

Electronic Medical Records EMR

With a VueLink interface, the ICON parameters can be directly exported out of the patient monitoring system in the universal EMR language HL7.
