ixTrend – recording medical signals from Philips patient monitors


ixTrend Express: acquire, visualize, store and export high-resolution medical data in one application

ixTrend records, visualizes, stores and exports high-resolution medical data from Philips patient monitors. All the functions are directly performed on one workstation. Choose the signals you intend to record and leave the rest to ixTrend. The software grabs vital signs such as heart rate or blood pressure and primary signals like ECG. After loading and visualizing the data directly on the PC, it enables the export of the records in various file formats. At the same time, you can keep track of the patients' current and past recording sessions in ixTrend.

New module: SAPS II computation 

ixTrend automatically derives SAPS II points from previously-recorded data. Using ixTrend, one must first capture the vital parameters "Systolic blood pressure", "Heart rate" and "Body temperature" within the same recording session. Then, only a few clicks suffice in order to compute the score points according to the SAPS II criteria. The Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS) serves as an index for the physiological state of a patient.

If you are looking for a solution to compute SAPS II values but are not interested in the full ixTrend functionality, please check out our ixTrend SAPS II solution.

HL7 interface

There is even more: soon, ixTrend also supports the HL7 standard in addition to the IntelliVue protocol. This extension enables ixTrend to potentially communicate with any device that offers an HL7 interface. Since medical technology often implements such an interface as well, ixTrend could prospectively be connected to devices of various manufacturers.

Additional features:

  • Automatic detection of linked monitors
  • Configuration and reuse of storage and diagram profiles
  • Numeric View: showing numerics in a separated area
  • Drag & Drop functionality
