Connex® Clinical Surveillance System
Connex Central Station
Provides immediate access to accurate
patient data, helping to increase efficiency,
enhance clinical decision-making, and
improve patient safety.
The Welch Allyn Connex Central Station brings the Connex Surveillance System together by allowing you to
view the status of all patients at a glance. It also helps clinicians to respond to remote alarm notifications and
view vital signs, continuous respiratory data and motion levels in a single patient record.
Each Welch Allyn Connex Central Station supports up to 48 patients, and multiple central stations can be
networked together for added surveillance. Optional EMR interface capability automates the documentation
of vitals, continuous monitoring data and motion levels into your medical record. Plus, hallway displays and
alarm notifications give clinicians the information they need—where and when they need it.
