Et Control for the Aisys Carestation
GE Healthcare Simplified Automation. Focus on what matters most
The anesthetist’s job is both art and science — a fluid blend of expertise and hard data, all aimed at tailoring the optimal anesthesia plan for each patient. Anesthetists spend valuable time checking and re-checking EtO2 and EtAA values, adjusting O2 and agent settings, re-adjusting for changes in uptake and metabolic rate, to ensure safe and effective anesthesia. All this in parallel with a multitude of other time-consuming and complex tasks. There is no question that digital technology can help eliminate many of the time-consuming manual
processes involved in agent and gas delivery as well as patient monitoring.
The question is ‘how’?
How can EtO2 and EtAA levels be monitored and regulated safely, reliably, and cost-effectively by digital technology? How can anesthetists reduce tedious and redundant tasks, without relinquishing control and without jeopardizing the quality of patient care?
