Welch Allyn Connex EVD System.
Open architecture to protect
your investment.
Through thoughtful design of the core components of
the Connex EVD System, Welch Allyn virtually assures
that your investment is protected. The Connex Vital Signs
Monitor’s modular physical design, USB-based architecture
and upgradeable firmware have been constructed for not
only simple replacement/repair of existing sensor modules,
but also for seamless future parameter/sensor upgrades.
Plus, our open software architecture is designed to be
capable of offering future Welch Allyn and third-party
clinical applications that would be able to run on the
monitor and a remote server.
For example, Welch Allyn has partnered with Masimo®
to incorporate Rainbow® SET technology that today
provides you with SpO2 and is designed to be capable
of being upgraded to include additional future Rainbow
SET parameters.
You can download or activate upgrades or updates via
your PartnerConnect™ portal. No need to send in your
device to enable enhanced sensors or new parameter
capabilities, and no need to invest in new devices when
new features are introduced—protecting your investment
and giving you the confidence that our devices will adapt
as your facility evolves.

We’ve changed the way vitals are documented to give your
staff access to accurate patient data anytime, anywhere.
Vitals documentation today: prone to errors and missing information.
Why compromise your EMR investment by relying on manual transcription of vital signs? When vitals
are captured and recorded on a piece of paper for manual entry into the EMR later, it’s easy to transcribe
them incorrectly, enter them into the wrong patient’s record, or never enter them at all. And even
when vitals are entered correctly, there’s a delay between the time they’re captured and when they’re
actually posted into the EMR. This can make staff less efficient—and force physicians to delay clinical
decisions or make them without the latest information, potentially putting patients at risk.
The Welch Allyn Connex Electronic Vitals
Documentation System
Automates the vitals documentation process to reduce errors, ultimately
enhancing clinical decision making, minimizing risk, and improving patient safety.
The Connex Electronic Vitals Documentation System provides wireless transmission of patient vitals data
from the point of care into the patient chart in your EMR. This dramatically reduces the time and labor required
to document data and thereby eliminating transcription errors.
The Connex EVD System helps you deliver the highest level of patient care:
> Provides clinicians with faster updates of changes in a patient’s vital signs
> Intuitive and easy-to-use design
- integrates into your department’s workflow, so staff won’t have to learn new ways to work
- eliminates need to type vitals data into your EMR
> Makes complete, accurate information available when it’s needed
- improves efficiency and helps deliver positive patient outcomes
Add it all up, and you get a considerable return on your investment—in both the Connex EVD System,
and in your EMR.
Quick and easy: Automating vitals documentation allows clinicians to identify themselves and the patient, then
capture and wirelessly transmit the readings to the EMR—eliminating extra steps and ensuring that vital signs
are accurately documented.
Designed for medical/surgical and noncritical care floors.
At Welch Allyn, our experience helps us understand frontline care and the people who provide
it. That’s why we don’t simply try to retrofit an ICU solution for noncritical care settings.
Workflows are different. There’s no need for duplicate data confirmation. So we created this
complete system for electronic vitals documentation specifically for medical/surgical and
general care floors—adding to our legacy of innovation.

Connex Vitals Management Software
The backbone of the Connex EVD System works behind the
scenes to seamlessly integrate and manage data from discrete
data sources and repositories (EMR, ADT, and devices).
Communicates directly with the Connex VSM via your wired or
wireless network*
> Two-way communication capability allows users to transmit:
– vitals data (NIBP, temp, SpO2, etc.), manual parameters (pain, respiration,
weight, height, etc.), and modifiers (patient position, NIBP site, 02
source, etc.) at the bedside—from the device directly into your EMR
– patient demographic data (name, etc.) from your ADT system back
to the monitor for positive patient identification at the point of care
Accessory Cable Management Stand
This unique mobile stand is ergonomically designed for efficiency
and ease of use. System components have specific compartments
to ensure quick identification and access. Natural draping keeps
