Perle Systems Application Note
Data Acquisition from Bedside Monitoring Equipment
Information from neo-natal monitoring devices that are recording physiological and environmental information needs to be collected centrally so that nurses can obtain real-time reports for each neo-natal in their care, instead of spending time manually charting them.
By relaying information to a central server application, data can be converted automatically into recognizable graphs, charts and figures.
Perle UltraPort SI Serial Cards installed in a central Windows or Linux based server collects information from the medical recording devices. The application residing on the server, process the information and creates real-time reports for each neo-natal station. This single card can handle both EIA-232 and EIA-422 serial interface devices.
