Jackson Firm Gets Patent For Anesthesia Device

JACKSON — A Jackson firm says it has received a United States patent for a new medical device that combines an anesthetic infusion device with a patient video monitor and electronic medical record-keeper.

MiraMed Global Services LLC says its subsidiary, Plexus Information Systems Inc., got the patent for its Anesthesia Touch device.

The company says Anesthesia Touch combines video image monitoring in the operating room, communication with other patient monitoring devices, an interface with the patient’s electronic medical record, the ability to receive and display video images of the patient during an operation, and operating an infusion device connected to the patient.

Said Tony Mira, MiraMed president and CEO: “Anesthesia Touch is really a game-changer. It is cloud-based, offers a flexible platform and allows anesthesiologists to use it when and where it is convenient for them. This patent demonstrates that Anesthesia Touch is singular in its approach to AIMS.”
