Distributed Alarm System with DAKSmed in keeping with IEC60601-1-8
The excessive number of alarms in hospitals and clinics undoubtedly leads to a desensitization of hospital and clinic staff ("Alarm Fatigue"). With the distributed alarm system consisting of DAKSmed, Dräger Patient Monitors, Infinity Gateway and mobile handsets, you can forward these alarm conditions to mobile devices in a highly individual way and customized to your individual needs.
Hospital and clinic staff receive fewer and at the same time more targeted alarm messages which empowers them to immediately tell vital from uncritical messages and to respond adequately right away. Use the easy DAKSmed browser-based user interface to select and assign the different patient care services, beds and alarms and support your individual hospital workflow in an optimum way.
Receive targeted alarm messages and respond effectively
Assign e.g. specific types of alarms or alarms from specific patient beds in a targeted way to the right nurses and fully mapped to the individual shifts.
Also, whenever a nurse is unable to take an alarm, e.g. because he/she is already attending to another patient, the DAKSmed user interface on the handset helps to quickly forward the alarm message to other colleagues and to make sure that no important alarm is ever delayed (functions depending on device type). In addition, the mobile handsets can be used to call for help straight away, especially in difficult situations when every second counts.
DAKSmed distributes alarms from patient monitors specifically to the DAKScommunicator terminals of assigned caregivers who can thus move freely and still receive detailed alarms from their patients. This allows them to monitor multiple patients simultaneously without having to be in their immediate vicinity.
With DAKScommunicator, caregivers can detect various alarms, assess the need for action, and respond or forward tasks accordingly. In doing so, DAKScommunicator supports an uninterrupted workflow by being worn on the body and being particularly easy and intuitive to use without having to be held in the hand.
Overall, caregivers can work more attentively, with greater focus and confidence.
DAKScommunicator is optimized for mobile workflows with audio, messaging and voice communication, and meets enterprise requirements for usability, availability, robustness and sensitive data handling.
