IRADIMED CORPORATION (NASDAQ: IRMD), announced FDA 510(k) clearance of its 3880 Magnetic Resonance Imaging (“MRI”) compatible patient vital signs monitoring system.
“We are excited to announce receipt of FDA 510(k) clearance and launch our revolutionary MRI compatible patient vital signs monitoring system to U.S. customers. The Iradimed 3880 monitor’s compact non-magnetic design positions Iradimed as the only company in the world with an MRI compatible patient monitor that can be used to transport patients from the critical care departments of hospitals to the MRI scanner room and back to critical care without an interruption in vital signs monitoring. It has an easy-to-use design and unique wireless tablet remote control that allows for the effective communication of vital signs information to clinicians,” said Roger Susi, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
The IRADIMED 3880 introduces a compact and lightweight design to the MRI compatible patient vital signs monitoring market, facilitating the transportation of patients from their critical care unit to the MRI and back, resulting in increased patient safety through uninterrupted vital signs monitoring and decreasing the amount of time critically ill patients are away from critical care units. It is the smallest, most portable MRI monitor on the market.
The Iradimed 3880 MRI compatible patient vital signs monitoring system has been designed with nonmagnetic components and other special features in order to safely and accurately monitor a patient’s vital signs during various MRI procedures. The IRADIMED 3880 monitor is rated for operations in magnetic fields up to 30,000 gauss, which means it can operate virtually anywhere in the MRI scanner room.
“With the 3880 monitor’s record-setting 30,000 gauss rating, non-magnetic design, small form factor and optional tablet that allows for the remote viewing of patient vital signs and control of the monitoring unit from the MRI control room, the Iradimed 3880 brings a unique and fresh solution to the MRI patient monitoring market,” said Susi.
The features of the IRADIMED 3880 include wireless ECG with dynamic gradient filtering; wireless SpO2 using Masimo® algorithms; respiratory CO2; non-invasive blood pressure; patient temperature, and; optional advanced multi-gas anesthetic agent unit featuring continuous Minimum Alveolar Concentration measurements.
