A Diagnostics & Imaging Week

Mindray Medical International (Shenzhen, China) said it has received FDA clearance for its AS3000 next-generation anesthesia delivery system made by Datascope Patient Monitoring (DPM), a Mindray company.

The AS3000 provides enhanced inhalation anesthesia and ventilation support capabilities for a variety of anesthesia cases and critical-care settings, including hospitals, health clinics, outpatient and ambulatory surgery centers, specialty and surgical hospitals. The system can be integrated with existing DPM monitors, including the recently launched Spectrum OR and Gas Module III and will notably expand market coverage of the DPM anesthesia product line.

"We're optimistic about the addition of this powerful anesthesia workstation to our growing portfolio of FDA-approved medical devices and comprehensive suite of product offerings," said David Gibson, DPM's president. "The AS3000 enables us to expand our base of physiologic monitoring throughout the peri-operative environment, increase our market share in the anesthesia delivery systems market and further strengthen our leading position in ambulatory surgery centers and community hospitals."

Mindray offers products across three primary business segments: patient monitoring & life support products, in vitro diagnostic products and medical imaging systems.
