Children’s Hospital Saves Lives with RTS & Telex RadioCom

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia outfitted their Cardiac Catheterization Lab with a state-of-the-art intercom system from RTS Digital Matrix and Telex RadioCom. A Cardiac Catheterization Lab, or Cath Lab, is a specially equipped examination room designed for performing coronary catheterizations; a minimally invasive procedure that can diagnose or treat heart conditions.
With such a delicate procedure, effective communication is absolutely essential. Everyone involved in the process; doctors, nurses, technicians, and other staff, must be able to contact each other clearly and reliably at all times. That is why the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia chose a digital matrix system from RTS with wireless components from Telex RadioCom. Each of the four control rooms is fitted with a Telex RadioCom BTR-700 wireless base station and a RTS KP-12LK 12-position keypanel. The KP-12LK is used by the nurses so they can speak to each other in their respective cath labs. RKP-4 4-channel wireless beltpacks by RTS were used to facilitate wireless communication, as well as Telex TR-700 wireless beltpacks and PH-88R single-sided lightweight headsets.
There is nothing like the RKP-4 wireless intercom system anywhere in the world. The RKP-4 four-button wireless keypanel intercom system is a one-to-one (one base station to one beltpack) full-duplex, digitally encrypted wireless intercom and will provide communication directly to RTS Digital Matrix Intercom communication systems. The RKP-4 offers a list of standard features that are unparalleled in the industry, like frequency agility, digital audio encryption, advanced ClearScan™, battery telemetry to the base station, base station RF meter and much more. The RKP-4B is packed full of the latest technology like intelligent power control, DSP digital audio processing and proprietary digital audio encryption.
The head nurse and the supply technician have direct communications to all four cath lab control rooms. They can speak with the recording nurse and can communicate with other rooms within the Cath Lab area.
KP-12LK wired keypanels are installed at central points within the Cath Lab so communication between rooms is easily achieved. In addition, MKP-4 4-position keypanels and speakers are also installed.
The RTS compact matrix frame connects to the RTS RKP-4B & Telex RadioCom BTR-700 wireless base stations and RTS keypanels via CAT5 cable.
The Cath Lab staff at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is now able to perform life-saving procedures knowing that RTS and Telex RadioCom will deliver their communications in a heartbeat.
