Software, Physiologic Measurement
Definition : Software designed to operate physiologic measuring instruments, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while measuring. This software is intended to work only with one or a few models of physiologic measuring instruments, usually from the same manufacturer. The software may perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements. Physiologic measuring software is not usually available separate from the tester but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the measuring instrument. Dedicated physiologic measuring software intended for a great variety of measurements (e.g., cardiac output, spirometry, blood pressure) is available.
