NBC affiliate King 5 profiles Spacelabs in the fight against COVID-19

Story highlights critical role of technology in coronavirus response

Emmy-winning reporter Ted Land interviews Spacelabs President Shalabh Chandra on the company’s role in the global response to COVID-19. See Chandra discuss the company’s initiatives to ramp up manufacturing and deployment of critical equipment to healthcare organizations on the front line. The story also illustrates how Spacelabs’ patient monitors can be quickly set up to provide caregivers a bedside view of vital signs without having to enter the patient’s room. Minimizing caregivers’ physical presence at the bedside helps reduce risk to staff, mitigate the risk of staff spreading infection to others, and lessen the need for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), which is especially important in times of supply shortages.
