Software, Physiologic Analysis
Definition : Software designed to operate computerized physiologic analyzers, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while testing. This software is intended to work with one or a few models of physiologic analyzers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing physiologic data, and/or while processing and or receiving information from hospital information systems. Physiologic analyzer software is not usually available separate from the analyzer but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the analyzer. Dedicated physiologic analyzer software is available to assess a variety (e.g., neuromuscular, visual, peristaltic motility) of functions as well as other physiologic characteristics (e.g., body composition, somnography assessment).
