Computerized Multibed Respiratory Monitoring

  • S. Z. Turney


Computerized monitoring in the intensive/critical care patient environment is now practical thanks in large measure to acceptance of the computer as a clinical tool. Confidence in the reliability and usefulness of computerized systems has grown, especially where they have yielded information otherwise unobtainable, or obtainable only with major effort by trained personnel. Further enhancement has come from establishment of real time data bases for trend, diagnostic and therapeutic purpose.
