Nurses are at the forefront of ongoing care in the ICU. But as more technology is layered into intensive care treatments, nurses often feel like they’re spending more time managing ICU technology than managing patient care. By consolidating data from many ICU devices, the Etiometry Platform helps medical professionals better understand the trajectory of their ICU patients by viewing salient clinical information on a single screen. It fosters more objective communication among care teams and provides a common platform to analyze the best course of treatment for ICU patients.
This innovative solution fosters more objective communication among care teams and provides a common platform to analyze the best course of treatment for ICU patients. The FDA-cleared Etiometry Platform provides nurses with an improved ability to communicate complex hemodynamic and respiratory patterns, and it enables better visualization of critical factors influencing patient care.
In addition, our IDO2 Algorithm assists the nurse in the recognition of inadequate perfusion and the triggering of a response from the other roles in the critical care team. Nurses can feel more comfortable communicating with physicians about the reasons that suggest a change in care, and can use a central display as a storyboard that guides the safe transfer of care to the next shift. Nurses also gain the flexibility to review more relevant patient data, rather than having to rely on information in the electronic medical records.
All ICU nurses benefit from streamlined access to data generated directly by the patient’s physiology. Shift nurses can quickly understand hot-spots in the unit and assign more experienced nurses to patients most in need, while less experienced nurses can feel more comfortable escalating issues to physicians.
