Tempus Pro™ is a new concept in vital signs monitoring that places the needs of the pre-hospital care professional at the heart of its design.

Ground breaking in functionality, the monitor is light enough to carry with you to the patient, small enough to hold in one hand and rugged enough to deploy in any situation.

    It uniquely offers 5 distinct capability sets:
  • Monitoring
  • Patient record data collecting and sharing
  • Real-time reach back
  • Modular feature selection
  • Scalability

Tempus Pro provides all the integrated features and capabilities expected in a market-leading vital signs monitor with unmatched durability, daylight readable display, long battery life, intuitive interface and a glove-friendly touch screen that enables ease of use for both advanced and basic life support paramedics and emergency practitioners.

The additional ability to easily document and share all patient data electronically ensures that all care givers have accurate information on patient injuries, therapies, trended vital signs, drugs and fluids that can be handed over, or sent ahead via ReachBak™, ahead of the patient arriving at hospital.

With the ability to add advanced capabilities post purchase, the platform is designed to be scalable to accommodate immediate and evolving budgets. This way Tempus Pro enables users to perform whole new diagnostic process on patients using the same battery and display already being carried. This flexibility and scalability enables you to leverage the most from your pre-hospital monitor investment.

Tempus Pro™ enables the capture of all vital signs, including graphical and tabular trends and 12 Lead ECG recordings and images from the integral camera. It does this in an easy to use format that can be transmitted or shared with other Tempus monitors or computers.

The patient encounter record builds automatically from point of encounter to the hospital. It can be shared on another Tempus monitor or on a PC as a PDF document and can be inserted into the patient’s long term patient record.

Additionally the record of care can be transmitted and viewed in real-time via optional ReachBak™ technology. This means all care givers have accurate information on patient injuries, therapies, trended vital signs, drugs and fluids.

Provision of this data can improve outcomes and provide a clear record of the patient’s treatment for future analysis.

The touch screen interface is simple and easy to use, even with a gloved hand, making it usable in difficult environments. Vital signs populate automatically and a touch-driven body map and intuitive
interface means data entry extremely quick and easy.

This combination of interface elements and dedicated function keys means Tempus Pro is uniquely intuitive and easy to use, enabling the input of data, management of settings and re-configuration of the display to be implemented with ease.


Unique to Tempus Pro™ is the optional integrated secure real-time reach back capability. This allows communications of voice, data and video for telemedicine and telementoring purposes over a wide range of civilian communications links. This ReachBak™ capability enables users to share all medical data, including 12 Lead ECG recordings, waveforms, still images and the patient encounter record with colleagues in real-time.

Tempus Pro is compatible with a range of military and civilian sea, air and both mounted and dismounted land communication systems, including 3G. Tempus can transmit two-way real time voice (using VoIP) via either wired or wireless (Bluetooth® – optional) headsets over civilian communications networks and military IP radios – such as Trellisware, Harris Falcon III, ITT Rifleman and Thales – EPLRS, SRW and ANW-2 waveforms and satellite communications such as Ku/Ka (VSAT), X Band, B-GAN and Iridium.

With all data, voice and video designed to provide a minimum bandwidth footprint, data can be transmitted over as low as 2k4 baud. With regards data export, all patient identifiers (name, age etc.) are AES256 encrypted; this is the level of encryption required for inter-governmental data transfer.

This ability to share all vital signs and patient care record in real time increases situational awareness and allows for better informed treatment and transport decisions to be made.

This also allows the i2i™ user to identify the patient’s location**. i2i software, used to receive calls from Tempus, is easy to install and configure.

Tempus Pro™ is designed to be scalable, enabling you to select the most appropriate configuration for your immediate budget requirements, with the ability to add feature sets, such as 12 Lead ECG, invasive pressure, point-of-care ultrasound, video laryngoscopy and even ReachBak™, after initial purchase and without the need to return the unit to RDT.

Additionally, the platform is designed for easy integration with external modules, using either wired (USB) or wireless interfaces to add whole new monitoring and diagnostic capabilities to the Tempus. This not only enables your monitor to evolve as your needs change, but also allows users to perform whole new diagnostic processes on patients in pre-hospital care settings using the same battery and display already being carried. This allows you to leverage even more from your investment in the future.
