Patient Monitoring Solutions
Patient monitoring is something which should be high on the priority list for any hospital to ensure the patients remain in good health. We supply a wide variety of solutions based on the environment and clinical needs. We also do our own portable pulse oximeter/capnograph.
Patient monitoring equipment is critical in ensuring that anaesthetised patients remain stabilised throughout the operating procedure – and intervening effectively when they don’t.
But monitoring functions can add huge costs to anaesthetic equipment – so all too often, LMIC hospitals and healthcare facilities go without.
Crucially, at Medical Aid International, we supply monitoring solutions that have been conceived specifically to suit the demands of LMIC environments, and to deliver the same benefits as integrated anaesthetic / monitoring machines, but at far lower cost.
Our Patient Monitoring Solutions
We can supply a wide variety of monitoring solutions, all tailored to the anaesthetic method being used. These range from pulse oximeters to monitors that include the full range of normal parameters such as CO2 and anaesthetic agents as well as temperature and also invasive monitoring options.
We use Mindray machines as we have found them extremely reliable, an excellent company to work with and very competitively priced.
Most commonly we tend to supply one of two machines. Firstly, the Mindray VS 900 machine. This does blood pressure and oxygen saturation and has full alarm and cycling capabilities. Secondly, we often supply another Mindray monitor that includes ECG and CO2, as well as oxygen saturation and blood pressure.
All machines have battery backup and are supplied with two of each adult to neonatal accessories.

Based on many years’ experience, we advise on and provide long-term anaesthetic solutions that are as effective high in the Himalayas as they are in a major teaching hospital in Dar es Salaam.
Any substantial healthcare facility needs reliable X-Ray. Yet in low resource environments most clinics and hospitals face many challenges in this area which directly can affect the quality of care.
