Supporting the Hope of Continued Life in ICU

Prof. Roberto Fumagalli,
Director of the Neuro Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Niguarda Hospital


"In the current system, we can collect a large number of parameters, such as respiratory parameters, hemodynamic parameters, and intracranial pressure. Complete data helps us to deliver better treatments to patients. "

Professor Roberto Fumagalli, who has been involved in medicine for more than 40 years, is a senior Italian expert in the field of anesthesia and resuscitation. He works at Niguarda Hospital, where the Department of Neurosciences enjoys high prestige in Italy. Professor Fumagalli has deep insights into the hospital's philosophy of "Respect of Tradition, Continuous Evolution", especially with regard to how to realize "Continuous Evolution". The last decade has witnessed the change in their working modes and devices utilization to cope with rising acute cases.

Walking into the Niguarda Hospital in Milan, Italy, is just like walking into an art gallery. The works of more than 140 artists are on display, providing visitors with an extraordinary aesthetic experience. As one of the largest public medical institutions in Italy and Europe, Niguarda Hospital is equipped with over 1,000 beds and employs more than 4,000 medical and nursing staff, covering all technical fields and medical disciplines from diagnosis to rehabilitation, with neuroscience being one of the main specialties. In the last decade, to provide more complete nursing services to patients, cutting-edge technologies were introduced to Prof. Roberto Fumagalli's Neurointensive Care Unit to offer the best diagnostic and therapeutic solutions to neurological diseases, bringing in a series of innovations in the precision and operability of devices and workflows.

In this regard, he is impressed by Mindray's BeneView series of monitors. "Patient diagnosis is based on some specific parameters such as cerebral regional hemoglobin oxygen saturation, intracranial pressure, hemodynamic parameters, and mixed or central venous oxygen saturation. So we need a monitoring system that can not only cover all these parameters but also guarantee their accuracy. Without a doubt, BeneView meets that requirement. It's a remarkable innovation as it makes patient transfer more efficient and at the same time eliminates information loss and error." says Professor Roberto Fumagalli.

Professor Roberto Fumagalli's busy clinic schedule tells him that easy operability of devices is gaining increasing significance. The ideal devices should exemplify such features as safety, easy readability, and operability with regard to the hospital's workflow and productivity. Readability means that you can read and enter information without any hassle if you follow the touchscreen instructions. Also, with respect to new staff training, an easy-to-use device would make hospital management more efficient.

The BeneView series monitoring solution has not only addressed their clinical needs, but more importantly, it is helping Niguarda hospital to evolve into a more modernized medical institution. With the help of the BeneView series monitors, Professor Roberto Fumagalli and his colleagues have also accumulated substantial experience to share with the medical community, allowing the Niguarda Hospital, a prestigious referral hospital, to increase its competitive standing in the medical industry.
