Philips Avalon FM50 Fetal Monitor
The Philips Avalon FM50 fetal/maternal monitors offer a solution for both external and internal fetal monitoring applications, and optional non-invasive maternal vital signs. The Avalon FM50 can monitor fetal heart rates (FHRs) externally using ultrasound, uterine activity using a toco transducer. The Maternal heart rate (MHR) is measured using ECG electrodes. This Philips fetal monitor can also measure Non-Invasive Blood Pressure (NIBP) and maternal oxygen saturation (SpO2). Additionally, the FM50 fetal monitor can monitor one FHR internally via direct fetal electrocardiogram (DECG), and uterine activity internally using an intra-uterine pressure (IUP) catheter. This fetal monitor is capable of intrapartum monitoring.
The measurements are displayed on a 6.5-inch color display as numerics. You can operate the FM50 using the touchscreen interface. Measurements are recorded and can be printed out via the onboard recorder.
This fetal monitor is compatible with the Avalon CTS Cordless Fetal Transducer System. Only one CTS Cordless Fetal Transducer system can be connected at a time. The user has the option to either use wired or cordless fetal transducers. Using both wired and wireless together is not supported in this unit. Cordless transducers have priority over wired transducers. When an Avalon CTS base station is connected via the appropriate interface cable, and there are wired transducers connected, the wired transducers are disabled.
