Applications specific to the operating room have been combined in a perioperative software package for SL monitors. Its Start/End Case features were designed to improve efficiency at the busy moments when a procedure is getting under way and at its conclusion.
The Start Case feature enables alarms and initializes operational and alarm settings. It allows you to purge previous patient data, initiates BISx monitoring, and starts gas sampling in the SL Multigas Analyzer. It documents the time the case was started in tabular trends.
The End Case feature enables you to quickly silence all audible alarms while still visually monitoring the patient, so you don’t have to disable individual parameter alarms or listen to nuisance alarms as the patient is being transferred. If NIBP is being used, it stops the measurement, stops the pump, and deflates the cuff. It also documents the end of the case.
