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.

DAKS-Communicator – A Perfect Complement for DAKSmed

DAKSmed distributes alarms from patient monitors to the DAKS-Communicator devices in a fully reliable and highly targeted way. This brings more assurance to nurses and caregivers as it enables them to move about freely while being genuinely assured that they will immediately receive any alarm from their patients, and with all details. This makes it possible to monitor several patients at the same time, without having to be physically located in their direct and immediate vicinity.

With DAKS-Communicator, nurses and caregivers are empowered not only to detect alarms when not at the patient's bedside - they immediately see what type of alarm was raised. This important information allows both to determine the necessary steps that need to be taken and respond accordingly, or forward the tasks without any delay. Because it is worn directly the body and successfully designed for easy and intuitive hands-free operation, DAKS-Communicator genuinely supports an uninterrupted workflow.

With DAKS-Communicator, nursing staff and caregivers are able to work more confidently, reassured, with highest focus and alertness.

DAKS-Communicator is designed and optimized to best possible mobile workflows with audio, messaging and voice communication, meeting even the strictest company and business requirements when it comes to usability, availability, sturdiness and dealing with sensitive data.
