Digi System on Module and Avancen Enhance Oral Pain Medication Delivery

Posted on:

This has become an agonizing issue when it involves delivering oral pain medication to a patient that is suffering, because as we all know, a minute in pain actually feels like 10 minutes. Even under optimal conditions it can take an average of 10 plus minutes after pressing the call button for a patient to receive painkilling medication.

The MOD® is equipped with the Digi RCM6600W system-on-module (SOM) for built-in intelligence, programmability and WiFi connectivity. This FDA approved device is used in hospitals and clinics saving time and making patients more comfortable in hospitals and clinics across the country.
