Dash 2500
The standard of excellence for sub-acuity monitoring
The Dash® 2500 monitor from GE Healthcare allows you
to deliver a new standard of clinical excellence to patients
in sub-acuity settings. Because it leverages the powerful
capabilities of the clinically-advanced family of Dash
monitors, there’s no need to sacrifice performance in the
interest of cost. The Dash 2500 monitor is a reliable, affordable
bedside monitor that gives you the clinical intelligence
you need to assess and treat your patients with speed,
accuracy and precision.
