Philips PageWriter TC70 EKG Machine Features

The Philips PageWriter TC70 EKG Machine is a cardiograph that simplifies diagnostic EKG/ECG testing and streamlines workflow.

  • Visual guidance to simplify EKG/ECGs
    • With the PageWriter TC70 cardiograph, each button lights in sequence, prompting you to take an EKG/ECG as easily as 1-2-3. The high-resolution, 15″ touchscreen further streamlines EKG/ECGs.
  • Save time with the Automated Reporting Sequence
    • The high performance PageWriter TC70 cardiograph features an automated EKG/ECG report sequence with integrated wireless transfer of EKG/ECGs to streamline your workflow.
  • Lead placement aids accurate placement of leads on the patient
    • The anatomic patient interface module and LeadCheck help support correct lead placement, while the 3-in-1 Trident lead wires reduce tangling.
  • Philips DXL EKG/ECG Algorithm expands diagnostic capabilities
    • Philips DXL 16-Lead EKG/ECG Algorithm provides industry-leading ECG interpretations and a suite of advanced STEMI diagnostic aids to provide an interpretation of rhythm and morphology for a wide variety of patient populations. It includes: Critical Values, ST Maps, and culprit artery identification.
  • Advanced bidirectional network communication for secure connection
    • With industry standardized DICOM, XML, and PDF report formats, via wireless LAN, or modem and fax, PageWriter TC70 fits seamlessly into your existing IT infrastructure. So you’re always connected, without being locked in. It delivers secure, wireless connectivity via standard LAN protocols to protect the privacy of patient, staff, and financial information.
  • Critical Value statements speed the delivery of urgent care
    • When appropriate, the PageWriter TC70 automatically displays Critical Value summary statements boldly on screen and on printed EKG/ECG reports so that caregivers can determine the need for urgent care. Clinicians can quickly take action and reduce the time from the discovery of a critical cardiac event to intervention, such as balloon angioplasty.
  • Saved EKG/ECGS can be quickly accessed
    • Clinicians can save time by retrieving previous EKG/ECGs at the bedside for quick comparisons.
