Scheduling

The Proxima acute respiratory and metabolic monitor now supports a scheduling function

Proxima Blood Gas Analyser with Scheduling function

Many care protocols call for the regular measurement of key blood markers to monitor the patient condition and response to therapy. This is particularly the case in the management of the sickest patients, and care staff can sometimes struggle

For example:

  • Blood gases are often measured hourly for patients undergoing ECMO treatment for respiratory failure
  • Insulin infusion protocols require initial hourly glucose measurements, reducing to two hourly measurements 
  • Head trauma protocols call for hourly arterial blood pCO2 measurements, as a part of careful control of intracranial blood flow and pressure.

The Proxima acute respiratory and metabolic monitor now supports a scheduling function to support regular measurements, as well as streamlining the workflow around arterial blood sample measurement.

The user can set up a single or repeated alert at commonly used testing intervals from 15 minutes to 4 hours. The monitor provides a continuous display of both the time since the previous reading as well as the time to the next scheduled measurement. When the measurement is due, the user is given a visual and (optional) audible alert.
