Citadel Demonstration Video

This video is designed to provide users with an overview of the Citadel™ Patient Care System as well as some guidelines on its correct use.

The new hospital bed Citadel™ Patient Care System provides flexible patient care for hospitals that demand safety, security and efficiency from their bed frames and therapeutic mattresses in Critical Care, High Dependency Units (HDUs) and Med Surg.

Integration provides important communication between the bed frame system and patient therapy system. One button delivers a CPR mode that simultaneously deflates the mattress and levels the frame, and automatic pressure compensation in the seat section occurs when the head of bed is adjusted. It also restricts automated turning when the head of bed exceeds 30 degrees or when one or more of the side rails is lowered.

Support and Safety that only integration can provide

Powered therapeutic mattresses offer adaptive care for high risk patient profiles.

Microclimate management

The Skin IQ® Family of compatible powered mattress covers utilize state-of-the-art Negative Airflow Technology (NAT) to continually draw away excess moisture from the skin/surface interface for microclimate management. Citadel offers a compatible Skin IQ outlet as standard, providing the user the option, and flexibility, to manage their patients microclimate effectively.

Standardising efficiency

Citadel Patient Care System is part of the Arjo bed portfolio and is founded on a core design, built on a universal platform. Regardless of the bed frame chosen for your hospital, you have the assurance that each system is based on a consistent design, to help you provide optimal patient care.
