Software, Anesthetic Gas Monitoring
Definition : Software designed to operate anesthetic gas monitors, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while monitoring. This software is intended to work only with one or a few models of anesthetic gas monitors, usually from the same manufacturer. The software may perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while monitoring anesthetic gases and/or while processing and/or transmitting/receiving patient information from anesthesia units, workstations, and/or hospital information systems. Anesthetic gas monitoring software is not usually available separate from the monitor but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment. Dedicated software intended for combined anesthetic gas/physiologic monitoring is also available.
