Radiometer launches the next generation of transcutaneous monitoring in Canada

Radiometer has unveiled its Health Canada licensed TCM5 transcutaneous monitor, addressing the critical care needs of neonatal, pediatric, and adult patients, as well as sleep clinic.

With a sleek appearance, intuitive color touchscreen interface, and clear visual display, the all-new TCM5 design focuses on the end-user. The TCM5 transcutaneous monitor offers continuous, non-invasive monitoring of tcpO2 and tcpCO2 as well as Masimo SET® SpO2, perfusion index, and pulse rate in real-time. The unique sensors automatically recalibrate when placed in the calibration chamber, enabling highly reliable measurements even with prolonged use. High-definition on-board interactive tutorials minimize training requirements.

Initially available in Australia, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the European Union among others, the TCM5 monitor offers a choice of two distinct versions tailored to customer and patient needs. The TCM5 BASIC monitor is ideal for diagnostic investigations in sleep clinics and respiratory care. Lightweight and compact with a clear numeric display, it enables accurate determination of ventilation and oxygenation status overnight. The dedicated sleep mode offers silent operation and a dark screen, ensuring that patients are not disturbed.

The premium TCM5 FLEX monitor is designed for critical care departments. It is particularly beneficial in neonatal intensive care due to its non-invasive nature. Numeric and trend displays, together with audible and visual alarms, instantly alert clinicians to any change in a patient’s status, enabling immediate intervention. For round-the-clock monitoring of neonates, a special NICU mode automatically monitors the duration of contact with the skin while the unique site time and temperature management controls balances sensor temperature and site time, helping to protect sensitive skin.
