The Welch Allyn Connex® Integrated Wall System features traditional Welch Allyn physical assessment instruments—an integrated ophthalmoscope and otoscope—combined with vital signs assessment technology from the Connex Vital Signs Monitor (VSM). The Connex VSM is a full-color, touch-screen vital signs device providing automatic measurements of heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, pulse oximetry, weight, and total hemoglobin; manual parameters such as respiration, height, and pain level; and modifiers such as body position, O2 therapy details, and others.

The wall unit can be configured for spot-check, monitoring with intervals, or triage modes and is suitable for sites using an EMR or HIS (hospital information system). The system reduces time spent on manual transcription and instances of human error and can automatically transfer data to an EMR. It allows patient vital signs to be viewed anytime, anywhere on a network. The customizable wall system’s open architecture enables upgrades and new technology to be added as they become available.
