Support Mobile Workflows and Alert Nursing Staff in a Targeted Way
Patients in intensive care units need to be under constant surveillance. But since the caregivers have to look after more than one patient at a time, they need to be made aware when their action is required via acoustic alarms from the various patient monitors and other medical devices. This multitude of alarms causes frequent interruptions in their workflow, which over time can lead to mental overload and even a certain desensitization ('alarm fatigue').
With DAKSmed, the alarms are distributed to the DAKS-Communicator devices of assigned caregivers in a targeted manner. As a result, DAKS-Communicator enables the nursing staff to better discern the individual alarms, empowering them to evaluate when and where their immediate action is required, and then either react accordingly themselves or forward the task to another person. In doing so, and with its high wearability and its ability to be operated with one hand while staying in the breast pocket or on the belt, DAKS-Communicator allows for a far more uninterrupted workflow.
