Automatically deliver a notification to the medical technical service in case of a malfunction of a ventilator? This may sound futuristic but it is a standard feature of the IQ Messenger platform. The desired medical alarms are forwarded to the nurse and the technical alarms can be forwarded directly to the right technician. Some serious disruptions can also be reported automatically by email to the supplier. Of course, alarms can be delivered to any wireless device such as a classic pager, DECT or WiFi handset and the SmartApp.
Ventilators by Dräger, GE and Getinge/Maquet, among others, are usually connected to IQ Messenger using a monitored serial protocol. Even different device series with different communication protocols are supported.
