The Propaq M is the newest version of the Propaq, which has been the trusted and proven vital signs monitor of the US Military for the past 20 years. The Propaq® M as well as the Propaq® MD, with an optional pacer/defibrillator, were specifically designed for the rigors of military operations and are used globally.
For the first time, through collaborative development with the military and partnerships with a number of telemedicine companies, true integration of data from the point of injury through to a definitive care medical facility is available in the latest Propaq model. It is the first integrated device that combines new, clinically superior monitoring parameters for all levels of care with therapy and data solutions designed to meet future mission needs today.
During MHSRS, ZOLL will demonstrate Propaq’s advanced communication capabilities by showing the integration of Propaq data with data from compact portable wireless monitors placed on the patient at the point of injury. Propaq data will also be integrated with a medical evacuation transport telemedicine solution that securely transmits accurate and reliable patient vital signs data, in limited bandwidth situations, while assuring noninterference with tactical communications.
“We are pleased to continue to provide innovative solutions that meet the military’s objective of both maintaining data with the patient and transmitting data ahead of the patient to provide the longitudinal, situational awareness needed to improve patient outcomes,” said Jonathan A. Rennert, President of ZOLL.
Propaq’s new, unique open architecture design supports: emerging telemedicine solutions, military EHR systems, and custom report generation. With a significant reduction in size, weight, and cube, the 8.5-lb Propaq M vital signs monitor is equipped with Masimo® rainbow® SET technology, 12-lead ECG with interpretation, and life threatening arrhythmia (LTA) alarms, Microstream® EtCO2 measurement technology, motion tolerant NIBP, three invasive pressures, two continuous temperatures, and provides 7.5 hours of operation on a single battery.
Propaq MD includes an optional defibrillator and pacer, eliminating the need to carry a separate monitor and defibrillator. The Propaq MD weighs 11.6 lbs and provides all the resuscitation capabilities required for today’s Medevac missions.
