Posted October 11, 2018 09:08:07Medical device maker Philips is looking to expand its range of devices, but it is starting with the medical device industry.
Key points:Phillips is making its own medical devices and turning them into medical devicesSource: ABC News’ Business on the Hub – ABS-CBN News Breakfast programThis week, Philips announced its latest medical device line-up: a heart monitor, an ultrasound device and an oxygen mask.
These are all designed to be used in emergencies, where it is vital to have the right equipment available.
“We’ve been doing this for about 15 years, so the technology is already in place,” Dr Paul Leinster, chief executive of Philips Medical Products, told Business Insider.
“This is a very simple device which, as I say, will allow you to detect a heart attack, which would be the most important medical event in the world.”
In other words, the Philips Health Monitor is the ultimate health-monitoring device.
The company is working with the world’s leading medical device maker, Novartis, to create this device, which is being marketed as a device that can detect the presence of blood in the body and alert doctors to the presence.
“When we look at our current products, we think that the best way to detect these is to use these,” Philips Medical Product CEO Michael Visser said.
“You have to look at the body in a very specific way, it has to be in a specific area.
You can’t just put it in your mouth and look at it and say, ‘This is what’s going on.'”
What Philips does with this new device is a bit different from other medical devices.
It’s a “micro-biofeedback device” that allows doctors to directly monitor patients and monitor their heart rate, breathing and other bodily functions.
In fact, Philips Medical products can also be used to monitor the body’s oxygen levels.
“The goal is to provide this information to the doctors, which then allows them to make the decision, whether they need to go to the hospital or not,” Dr Leinsters said.
That’s a big change for Philips Medical, which for many years has been focused on making medical devices for health care professionals.
But this new line-in is a major step forward for the medical devices giant.
“I think we’ve really changed the way we think about what we do,” Dr Vissers said.
And it is a big step for Philips as the company is also in the medical field of cardiac monitoring.
Its devices are used to detect heart attacks, which doctors are then able to use to monitor patients.
“It’s very important to know the heart rate of your patient,” Philips Health Product chief scientist, Dr Thomas Janson, said.
But Philips is not just working with health care organisations.
“So many of the devices that we sell now, are used by healthcare professionals to diagnose a range of things,” Dr Janson said.
What Philips Medical is doing with the device is to turn it into a medical device, but in this case the device will work on the heart as well as other organs.
It is not the first time Philips Medical has experimented with the use of medical devices in healthcare settings.
In 2016, Philips Healthcare launched its first medical device to the public, a cardiac monitor.
That device was a prototype and Philips Healthcare has since sold thousands of it to other healthcare providers.
Dr Janson described the current medical device market as a “wonderful area” for Philips.
“Because of the medical-device industry’s success in the last 15 years we are seeing a lot of medical-devices companies trying to do something new and exciting with medical devices,” he said.
The new Philips Health monitor is only one of the health-care devices being developed for the Philips Healthcare team.
The other products being developed are an air-pump for the heart, a portable heart monitor for use in the hospital and a remote-controlled heart monitor.
