We deliver the telecare patient and equipment monitoring system. The solution provide the following features:
- Patient monitoring including real-time parameters analysis and visualization
- Event-based alerting system through the definition of threshold schemes and thresholds to detect life-threatening exceptions
- Medical equipment monitoring and inventory including quality monitoring
- Remote patient and equipment monitoring
When a person is being treated for chronic respiratory distress through MHV, the medical equipment can raise various alarms, including low and high-pressure alarms, due to changes in the ventilation process. For example, low-pressure alarms can be caused by patient disconnection from the ventilator; circuit, airway, and chest tube leaks; patient coughing; or accumulation of water in the circuit. These alarms can be categorized into discrete events, which must be continuously monitored to detect life-threatening exceptions in breathing. Immediate detection of these changes in ventilation, automatic prioritization of the resulting events, and sending immediate notifications to distant medical personnel are the most important monitoring challenges. Existing solutions do not address these problems sufficiently.
