Software, Physiologic Monitoring, Respiration

Definition : Physiologic monitoring software designed to operate respiration 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 respiration 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 respiration (e.g., respiration rate, exhaled gases, apnea) and/or while processing and/or transmitting/receiving patient information from workstations, and/or hospital information systems. Respiration 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; the software is mainly used by bedside and telemetric monitors, and/or physiologic monitoring systems. Dedicated software is available according to the technique used to measure respiration (e.g., electrical impedance).
