Auxiliary Displays, Physiologic Monitor, Interactive
Definition : Physiologic monitoring auxiliary displays designed to provide access to patient information that is similar to the information on the central monitoring station and to permit the modification of monitor settings. These displays typically consist of a display screen, appropriate electronic circuits appropriate to permit the visualization of patient physiologic numeric parameters and/or waveforms, and controls and keypads appropriate for changing alarm settings and activating or inactivating alarms, as well as making other modifications in the monitoring system. Interactive auxiliary displays (also known as central station clients) are usually placed in hallways or multipatient rooms, providing ready access to patient information and allowing clinicians to modify monitoring system parameters without going to the central station or checking each bedside monitor.
