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.

Typical Areas of Application


The individual components of the distributed alarm system jointly ensure that patient-related, personalized alarm signals are instantly forwarded and distributed to the right doctors, nurses and caregivers.
