Title: GROUP COORDINATION OF OPERATIONAL FEATURES OF A PLURALITY OF MEDICAL DEVICES
Abstract:
Embodiments include a system providing group coordination of operational features of a plurality of medical devices. The system includes a plurality of medical devices each including a control engine having a set of device-specific parameters governing operation of an operational feature. The system also includes a rack providing a mounting structure for coupling the plurality of medical devices by releasable engagement. The system further includes a communication architecture in the rack providing connectivity between the plurality of medical devices when the plurality of medical devices are coupled to the rack. The control engines in the plurality of medical devices are interoperable with respect to the operational feature and automatically modify the set of device-specific parameters in each one of the plurality of medical devices when coupled to the rack for group coordination of the operational feature.
