Nursing Informatics Critical Care Application

Critical care nursing is an area of expertise within nursing that focus specifically with human responses to lifethreatening problems. A critical care nurse or critical care staff is responsible to ensure that critically ill patients and seriously conditioned individuals, in addition, nurse or critical care staff is should ensure that families of the medically ill patient should receive optimal care. Intensive care units, pediatric Intensive Care units, neonatal Intensive Care. Units cardiac care units, cardiac catheter labs, telemetry units, progressive care units, emergency departments and recovery rooms are among the special area of critical care application that needs immediate attention when it comes to proper automation and computerization. Critical Care Nursing Short Summary Is an area of expertise within nursing that focus specifically with human reponses to life-threatening problems. Critical care applications are areas where patients require complex assessment, high-intensity medication, continuous therapy and interventions, and unrelenting nursing attention and continuous watchfulness. Critical care providers and nurses rely upon a dedicated knowledge, skills and experience and course automated system and support and intelligent system to prove care to patient and families and create environments that are healing compassionate and caring. Examples of Critical Care Nurses work: Bedside clinician \s, educators, guidance researchers, report managers, advocate, specialists and practitioners.

Critical Care Applications Short Summary

Areas where patients require complex assessment, high-intensity medication, continuous therapy and interventions, and unrelenting nursing attention and continuous watchfulness.

The technology is keep on evolving, introducing man advances in healthcare, technology is keep on contributing
to the healthcare areas and keeping more people out of the hospital or keeping more patient easily to recover and properly care or have proper management of health. It projected that the hospitals of the future will be large critical care units, and other types of care will be provided in alternative locations or at home. Critical Care Nurse

Is responsible to ensure that critically ill patients are seriously conditioned individuals. Ensure that families of the medically ill patients should receive optimal care. Rely upon a dedicated knowledge, skills and experience and of course automated system of support and intelligent system to provide care to patient and families and create environments that are healing, compassionate and caring.

Critical Care Information System 1. Provide real-time resource utilization data and management of information and access critical care areas through the integration of the medical facilities in the critical care or intensive care unit to an intelligent computer system which is capable of processing all data. 2. Enables the electronic collection of hospital and patient-specific critical care data of the entire patient in the critical care areas which can be processed to create a patient profile which generate real time and historical report on indicators including bed occupancy, delayed discharges, readmission rates, and outcomes. 3. Automated collection and management of medical information will become the important task of the critical care information system. The medical Information BUS (MIB) provides a generalized method of attaching patient monitoring devices to a common interface. This I interfaces converts the unique manufacturer data communication ns protocol into a standardized hardware and software system. Automated collection and management of medical information will become Philippines with critical care information system should have a large clinical computer system that uses information from many different areas such as information from the clinical laboratory, pharmacy, radiology, pulmonary, cardiology, beside nurse charting, and other areas are all combined and correlated to provide reporting feedback and suggestions to hospital staff.

Special software is installed in the computer system which enables the user to have an access and use o f the critical care information system. Example, the bedside monitoring system acquires data such as heart rate from the EEG, parameters from arterial and pulmonary arterial invasive blood pressures, temperatures, non-invasive blood pressures, and arterial saturation and heart rate from pulse oximetry. Other electronic devices at the patients bedside such as infusion pumps, mechanical ventilators, mixed venous oxygen saturation monitors.

Medical Information Bus (MIB) 1. Provides a generalized method of attaching patient monitoring devices to a common interface.

2. This interface converts the unique manufacturer data communications protocol into a standardized hardware and software system. 3. It eliminates the need for custom connector and software presently needed to interface such device. 4. Has the ability to filter, store and select information sent for inclusion into the clinical medical record on the clinical computer system. Infusion pumps, ventilators, pulse, and other patient equipment are now transmitting clinical information for use in clinical data reporting and decision making.

Advantages of Critical Care Information System 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Intelligently integrates and process physiologic and diagnostic information and store it to secured clinical repository. Creates trends analysis with graphical representation of results. Offline stimulation can be performed to test the condition of the patients. Provide clinical decision support system Provide access to vital patient information Providing feedback and quick evaluation of the patient condition and provides alert.
