Automatic vitals entry is here! (beta)

We're excited to announce beta support for reading vitals directly off of compatible vitals monitors!

We've updated the "tour mode" in the app to show you exactly how it works with auto monitoring enabled. You can do this even without creating an account by openening the app in your browser and selecting "start mock case." Or, if you already have an account, by selecing "tour mode" from the menu in the upper right corner of your screen. Part way through, you'll be asked if you want the "auto" or "manual" version of the tour.

What you'll need to use this for real cases:

  • check
    An AnesthesiaCharting.com Subscription.
  • check
    Windows. Some type of Windows Laptop or Microsoft Surface so you can install run our Windows app. You'll likely want one with a touch screen and a physical keyboard so you can type easily and sign with your finger, but any Windows machine should technically work. You can download and install the app here:
  • check
    An Edan monitor connected to your local network. Currently we support most newer Edan monitors with a network port. We've built and tested things primarily against the the iM80 but it should work with all the monitors in that series: iM50/iM60/iM70/iM80 as well as with the M3 model.

How does it work?

On the Edan monitor you'll need to use the menu to configure its network connection to ensure that it is connected to your network. You'll have to navigate the menu to Maintain > User Maintain then enter the password ABC. Next, whether your monitor is connected via physical network cable or wifi, you'll want to make sure it's connected to the same network as your computer and configured to automatically be assigned an IP address.

The downloaded app will work just like the website, but now you'll see a Connected Monitor: item in the status bar at the top with a configure button that you can press to locate/connect your monitor.

When you get to the "monitors" step, you can select what will be automatically monitored and what (if anything), will be manually entered.

That's it! Now when vital checkpoints are due, the app will read them from the monitor directly and enter them for you. And, don't worry, you still have full control of what shows up on the final report, but the manual process of gathering data for each checkpoint is fully automated.
