Clinical decision support tools have never been more important to overburdened acute care teams. Clinicians may only have time to briefly scan a monitor so information needs to be presented as simply as possible. Philips clinical decision support tools are designed to reduce cognitive load, recognize patient deterioration and give speedy feedback on whether therapeutic interventions are working.
The Horizon Trends tool gives clear feedback on the patients’ current status and how they are trending for each measured parameter. Instead of using sound to alert the user to a deterioration in the patient’s condition, deviation bars and trend arrows display patient status in relation to a target goal value.
ST Map collects ST values and trends from all measured chest and limb leads. It provides the patient’s ST values in a multi-axis diagram that allows clinicians to quickly see ST changes and their location in the heart.
