Measuring and monitoring patient vital signs is especially important when a patient is sedated, such as during an operation, in intensive care, in recovery, or while critically ill. A central computer is usually located at the nurse's station, but healthcare facilities are finding an increasing need to monitor from other areas in the hospital or medical facility.
Additionally, reliable reporting, 24/7 uptime, and the sharing of highly detailed images electronically are some of the challenges for healthcare providers.
New infrastructure needs to integrate current technology while also future-proofing scalable systems to keep costs in control.
Extend EKG signals to a remote station for a healthcare provider to monitor. Another option for signal extension is to use a remote desktop system with physical and virtual computers that can deliver video and data signals over a LAN/WAN.
Real-time access for multiple users
Transmit high-definition medical images long distances without dropping a pixel. Give multiple users access to video and other data sources very quickly.
Use the LAN or Ethernet to share high-definition images. Using the LAN improves transmission distances and keeps demands on bandwidth low. Integrate a multiviewer KVM system to monitor up to four video sources on one screen.
Use locking cables to ensure continual monitoring and healthcare. Locking patch cables prevent networks from dropping signals either through accidental or malicious disconnects.
