nihon-bsm-3562Nihon Kohden has launched its BSM-3500, the latest advancement in its line of bedside monitors. Designed to meet the precise needs of ambulatory surgery and specialty centers, the BSM-3500 comes fully optimized with all features – both premium and standard – ready to use at a moment’s notice, bringing among the highest standards of care to low acuity settings.

“Hospitals and health systems know that not every patient requires intensive care or use of a high-acuity bed, but they also know patients in low-acuity areas still need to be monitored, no matter how minor a procedure may seem,” said Dr. Wilson P. Constantine, CEO of Nihon Kohden America. “By using Nihon Kohden’s line of quality, reliable monitors that are developed with our premium-as-standard philosophy, health care providers know their patients will be taken care of, no matter where they are in a health system.”

In addition to a range of standard monitoring features, the BSM-3500 offers a number of capabilities to ensure care in low acuity settings. These include the ability to spot real-time mini trends for early detection of vital sign variability during outpatient procedures. In addition, the new monitor works with Nihon Kohden’s proprietary cap-ONE Mainstream CO2 Sensor Kit, which is the world’s first wearable mainstream CO2 sensor for non-intubated patients. As with all Nihon Kohden monitoring systems, the BSM-3500 is also designed to seamlessly integrate with electronic medical records systems.
