Remote access to patient cardiopulmonary information in near real-time

26.08.2005


Dräger Medical will unveil its new remote access concept at the 9th World Congress of the World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine in Buenos Aires, August 27-31, 2005. This new concept enables physicians to remotely access their patients’ cardiopulmonary status in near real time by using an integrated remote access solution.



Components of the new remote access concept include the Infinity® Gateway Suite, which provides the tools to export vital signs and ventilation data from Infinity® patient monitors and Evita series ventilators to other systems; Infinity® Pocket WinView, a PDA application that enables physicians to see patient information on a hand-held device; Infinity WebViewer, a browser application that enables near real-time remote viewing of vital signs and ventilation data on any networked PC; and Infinity® ChartAssist® ,a Web-based electronic information system for the intensive care unit. To protect data security, remote access is provided in accordance with the existing data security guidelines of the hospital.

The goal of the remote access concept is to help hospitals increase quality of care by helping clinicians better serve their patients. Today’s high acuity patients may deteriorate rapidly, and time is often of the essence. In many situations, consulting physicians need to obtain patient information regardless of where they are at that moment. Dräger Medical’s solution provides the tools that enable caregivers to better access their patients’ cardiopulmonary status wherever and whenever they want - within the limits of the hospital intranet.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
