When his brother Andre was punched in the face during a bar brawl over a game of chess, he was given a regular scan just to be on the safe side. Doctors noticed a suspicious mass and ordered an MRI scan which revealed an entirely unrelated brain tumour that might otherwise have gone undetected. Recovering from surgery, he found himself hooked up to a Philips IntelliVue patient monitoring system — a Philips innovation developed a decade earlier by his own brother so that hospitals could use simple, portable and extremely fast-working machines that can collect data to provide a coherent picture of a patient’s status. The patient monitoring system did its job and Andre is now back to playing chess. His ever-resourceful brother has even found a way to stop him getting into any more fights over the game as this short film shows.
