Abstract

The present invention proposes a technique to provide patient data to an anesthesia system. The technique includes a patient airway module simulator (PAMS) to simulate patient data from spirometry, carbon dioxide waveform among others and airway module which include metabolic gas (MGAS). Then patient data is sent to a host system. The PAMS hardware is a single board with a microcontroller and connections for the airway module as well as a host system and universal serial bus (USB) for a personal computer (PC).

PATIENT AIRWAY MODULE SIMULATOR

FIELD OF INVENTION

The invention generally relates to an anesthesia system and more particularly to a technique to send data to the anesthesia system.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Patient data is robust and critical. It is required to acquire data at maximum and minimum boundaries. Also the data is required to be representative of clinical scenarios to generate accurate healthcare understanding. This allows creating efficient healthcare system. Several conventional techniques are applied to acquire data. However, each of the techniques utilizes low transmission rate microcontrollers (MCUs).

It would be desirable to have an efficient technique to acquire patient data to generate accurate healthcare understanding and create efficient healthcare system.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The present invention proposes a technique to acquire patient data on an anesthesia system. The technique includes a patient airway module simulator (PAMS) to simulate patient data from spirometry and carbon dioxide waveform, among others and an airway module which includes metabolic gas (MGAS). Subsequently, patient data is sent to a host system.
