Title
(EN) Medical equipment monitor apparatus and method
Abstract
(EN)
A medical equipment monitor apparatus and method whereby the normal operating conditions and alarm situations for the medical equipment (40, 50, 60) are intercepted by the monitor (10) where they are recorded and selectively transmitted to a base computer system at a remote location. Importantly, alarm conditions of the medical equipment (40, 50, 60) are promptly transmitted over a telephone (30) to the base computer to alert the operating personnel to the alarm condition. The monitor system also provides for a printed copy to be produced from selected data provided to the base computer by the monitor apparatus.
