Software, Device Testing
Definition : Software designed to operate device testers, control/monitor a limited number of the tester functions, and/or process data obtained while testing. This software may be intended to work with one or a few models of device testers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software may perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing the device parameters, and/or while processing and or receiving information from hospital information systems. Device testing 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 tester; the software is mainly used in biomedical engineering departments located in healthcare facilities. Dedicated device testing software is available for a great variety of functions and/or devices, including electrical safety, cardiac pacemakers, infusion pumps, and ventilators.
