Avalon Patient Monitor

Avalon FM fetal and maternal monitors are Philips' first and only to offer automated coincidence detection (cross-channel verification) using Smart Pulse, measuring fetal & maternal heart rates separately to enhance diagnostic confidence.

Extensive fetal parameters || Advanced clinical decision sup

Extensive fetal parameters when more information is needed

For complex cases, the Avalon FM30 fetal monitor offers external and internal fetal parameters. These include ultrasound, fetal movement, direct fetal heart rate, Toco and intrauterine pressure, as well as maternal pulse rate, and ECG, with optional Sp02 and blood pressure.
NST Trace Interpretation || Advanced clinical decision sup

NST Trace Interpretation to improve efficiency

Built-in NST Trace Interpretation, a clinical decision support (CDS) application for antepartum monitoring, can help to improve efficiency by sorting out the traces that require closer analysis by the obstetrician.
Avalon CTS || Versatile and comfortable

Avalon CTS for freedom of movement

When connected to the Avalon Cordless Transducer System (CTS), mothers can freely move up to 100 meters from the CTS base station during continuous monitoring by the care team. The CTS also transmits data to the IntelliSpace Perinatal information system to add to the overall patient record.
IntelliSpace Perinatal connectivity || Continuous flow of information

IntelliSpace Perinatal connectivity for continuous care

The Avalon FM30 fetal monitor connects to IntelliSpace Perinatal, Philips obstetrical surveillance and information management system. This supports the continuum of care from the first antepartum visit to delivery, postpartum, and newborn nursery, discharge and postpartum follow-up visits.
Large, intuitive color display || Intuitive and easy to use

Large, intuitive color display clearly shows status

The luminous color display has large numerics and graphs so you can easily view maternal and fetal ECG waves.
Triplet monitoring option || Versatile and comfortable

Triplet monitoring option expands capabilities

Only the Avalon FM series can monitor triplets on a single monitor using the same ultrasound frequency. This allows one monitor to be used for a wide range of clinical needs.
Reliability features || Continuous flow of information

Reliability features allow uninterrupted operation

With the Avalon FM series, you have the confidence of an uninterrupted flow of information. The optional battery allows continuous monitoring during maternal transport in healthcare facilities. It also features a backup memory and LAN interface, combined with smart transducers and a color touchscreen.
Smart transducers || Intuitive and easy to use

Smart transducers to simplify operation

The smart transducers have auto-recognition and "Finder LED" that automatically recognize which transducer is plugged in. When the transducer is plugged in, the screen layout automatically displays data in the correct format. This simplifies operation for caregivers.
Variety of readings || Advanced clinical decision sup

Variety of readings for comprehensive understanding

This antepartum and intrapartum monitor provides a wide range of readings. These include separate maternal pulse measurement; integrated monitoring of maternal pulse rate and blood pressure (optional); external monitoring of fetal heart rates, uterine activity, and fetal movement; an extensive set of internal fetal parameters such as direct fetal heart rate and uterine pressure; and optional maternal SpO2 monitoring.
Smart Pulse || Advanced clinical decision sup

Smart Pulse for automated coincidence detection

Smart Pulse provides cross-channel verification. It continuously compares all fetal and maternal heart rates, enhancing caregiver confidence that each is measured separately.
External touch display option || Versatile and comfortable

External touch display option for flexibility

The optional external touch display gives caregivers enhanced flexibility in placing the monitor where it can be easily viewed by family members and caregivers.
