• System responds to growing demand for ambulation during labor;
• Enables constant maternal-fetal monitoring regardless of location;
• Compatible with existing Corometrics*1 maternal-fetal monitors and transducers.

The GE Mini Telemetry System addresses the growing demand for mobility during labor, and is fully compatible with existing GE’s Corometrics monitors and transducers, as it uses the same transducers whether the patient is in bed or mobile.

The GE system is designed to enable a more ambulatory experience for the mother and increase caregiver efficiency, while ensuring continuous monitoring. A number of trends have converged to make ambulatory monitoring of mother and baby increasingly attractive, including the emergence of alternative labor-and-delivery tools and environments such as birthing balls and laboring in water.

“With our Mini Telemetry System, GE aims to provide the freedom for mothers-to-be to enhance their birthing experience through ambulation and hydrotherapy during labor,” said Carrie Eglinton Manner, General Manager for GE Healthcare’s Maternal Infant Care business. “This System is engineered to deliver uncompromising, interruption-free maternal and fetal monitoring in a simple, compact and complete solution.”

The Mini system provides maximum mobility for a minimal investment in addition to the benefits for the mother-to-be and the care provider, including compatibility with existing Corometrics monitors allowing utilization of the same transducers, regardless of the patients’ location within the line of sight2 antenna range of 500 meters/1640 feet. Other features include:

• Audio monitoring of fetal heart rate via either transmitter speaker or headphones;
• Compact size and weight (just a pound) for the ability to move freely while maintaining constant access to monitoring;
• A innovative cable-management slot for enhanced patient care;
• One-touch marking of the baby’s movements;
• The ability to transport mothers-to-be to other in hospital departments without needing to replace transducers within the line of sight antenna range of 500 meters/1640 feet;
• Three-port design allowing for multiple monitoring modes: fetal heart rate, uterine activity and ECG monitoring;
• Extended battery life of up to 12 hours can accommodate the full duration of most labors. The device can also be recharged during use;
• Waterproof 9-crystal transducers provide reliability in fetal monitoring, even while laboring in water;
• Industry leading line-of-sight antenna range.

The GE Mini Telemetry System is now commercially available in major markets throughout the world.
