Title (EN) SYSTEM FOR FLUID RETENTION MANAGEMENT
(FR) SYSTEME DE GESTION DE LA RETENTION DE FLUIDES
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides a fluid retention management system that records and displays fluid retention of a patient based on the weight of fluid entering and exiting the patient's body. Scales (12)(26) or other weighing devices are used to weigh the fluid entering and exiting the body so that the corresponding fluid volume may be calculated. The system automatically detects when a fluid container is being replaced. The fluid deficit of the patient is calculated according to the difference between the fluid volume entering the patient and the fluid volume exiting the patient. An operator is able to enter the specific gravity of the fluid and a fluid deficit alarm threshold. If the fluid deficit exceeds the alarm threshold, audible and visual alarms are generated.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système de gestion de la rétention de fluides corporels qui enregistre et affiche la rétention de fluides chez un patient en fonction du poids des fluides entrant dans le corps du patient et en sortant. Le système recourt à des balances (12, 26) et autres dispositifs de pesée pour peser lesdits fluides et calculer les volumes correspondants; il détermine en outre quand un récipient récepteur de fluides est en cours de remplacement. Le déficit du patient en fluides se calcule en fonction de la différence entre le volume entrant et le volume sortant. Un opérateur introduit la densité des différents fluides et le seuil d'alarme signalant un déficit. Si le déficit dépasse le seuil d'alarme, des signaux d'alarme sonores et visuels le signalent.
