The new interface lets the user go through the apps easily by providing a shortcut menu for a direct access to the main SmartLink apps and the new ones. The new advanced search engine allows a customised search of the patient data by: name, surname, day, dept, bed/patient id. SmartLink provides an effective improvement thanks to a new alarm management tool and is now featured by the Respiration Summary Report: a powerful and synthetic tool to evaluate the patient respiration data/parameters (SpO2 desaturations, apnoeas).
From the parameters/waveforms view, the graphic and tabular trend view can be accessed, as well as the complete alarms list with the taking charge status. From each listed alarm, the corresponding trend can be opened, centered on the select alarm, ready to start a waveforms replay if available. The advanced search function gives access to the stored data, allowing the user to see trends and replays of a patient no longer connected to a monitor. Using the SmartLink’s web interface, the authorized doctors and nurses will access the patients monitoring data using their own PC, from anywhere inside or outside the department or the hospital. The basic function is the real time remote viewing of parameters and waveforms, selecting the patient in an automatically updated beds list. The current alarm status of each bed is displayed and the active alarms list can be viewed after selecting a bed.
