Philips Radiology

philipspict1With a growing presence in cardiology, oncology, and women’s health, we focus on the fundamental health problems with which people are confronted, such as congestive heart failure, lung and breast cancers and coronary artery disease.

Our focus is to deliver value throughout the complete continuum of care: from disease prevention to screening and diagnosis through to treatment, monitoring and health management. Philips is dedicated to making an impact wherever care happens, within the hospital – critical care, emergency care and surgery – and, as importantly, in the home.

Sleep and Respiratory Care
Philips Respironics is a global leader in treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition in which the airways collapse repeatedly during sleep, preventing proper respiration. Respironics gives Philips a leading position in the fast-growing areas of sleep management, respiratory care and non-invasive ventilation.

Remote Monitoring
Philips provides a full line of remote cardiac monitoring services to more than 200,000 patients annually. Philips also assists mechanical heart valve patients self-test weekly which helps reduce anticoagulation-related complications. Philips Patient Telemonitoring Services (PTS) and Motiva, an interactive healthcare platform using broadband television, provide the ability to monitor patient’s health at home.
