Repairing Patient Monitoring System

Patient monitoring system enables physicians to make “house calls” to check the progress of their patients. The system along with a processing module enables close monitoring of patient’s different data. The module can be popped in a bed side display unit to exhibit monitored physiological data of the patients. Connectors enable the module to drive both the display units simultaneously to prevent loss of data when the module is removed from the bedside unit and placed in the portable unit and vice versa.

The most common patient monitoring systems consist of-
* Clinical Care Equipment
* Neonatal Equipment
* Fetal / Obstetrical Equipment
* Emergency Equipment
* Anaesthesia and Recovery Equipment

The former versions of patient monitoring systems had numerous drawbacks. Data could not be saved in different forms to be used later. Only dynamic wave forms could be saved and reassessed later during occurrence of some panic situations. Transmission of data was limited and a separate analogue line was necessary for each wave form and derived parameter which had to be transmitted from bedside to central station. Quantity of displayed hardware required for patient monitoring became excessively distracting for medical personnel to monitor.

The latter versions of patient monitoring systems were designed to surmount the errors of the former versions in data processing, storing and inherent display. A central computer was added to the formerly existing bedside and central station units. The system endowed the capacity to attain more composite, physiological parameters through computer programs, storing enabling parameters for later reviews and creating graphs and hard copy of the stored data.

The latter versions were also not free from errors; they were inadequate to transmit data between bedside and central stations units. An additional set of analogue lines was necessary to broadcast each discrete wave form and each discrete derived parameter to the central processor. They were also incapable of expanding the system conveniently.

The complex patient monitoring systems can be best supervised and maintained by adopting the following measures

A. Forming a team of qualified service personnel who can handle equipment
B. The equipments used by them should be maintained and cleaned regularly
C. Inspection reports and service records should be centrally examined by the team members.
