Auxiliary Displays, Physiologic Monitor, Noninteractive
Definition : Physiologic monitoring auxiliary displays designed to provide access to patient information that is similar to the information on the central monitoring station, but without allowing any input from the clinician. These displays consist of electronic screens with appropriate electronic circuits to permit the visualization of physiologic parameters and/or waveforms. Noninteractive auxiliary displays (also known as slave displays) are usually placed in hallways or multipatient rooms, providing staff ready access to patient information and allowing clinicians to determine patient status without going to the central station or checking each bedside monitor.
