Abstract

According to Vietnam Ministry of Health report [1], kidney failure therapy is mainly depend on haemodialysis method (about 95%). This long-term method has to be used continuously to sustain patient life. Data extracted from the systems and patient records are greatly produced consequently. However, paper records are now major storage means that hold a big amount of the above data in almost renal departments in Vietnam. As the result, these state many inadequate settlements when dealing with patient records during treatment, monitoring and evaluating process. In corporation with Renal Department in Bach Mai Hospital and E Hospital, our research team has designed a renal dataflow control and patient record management system used in renal department environment.

The BK-HDmanager system combine hardware and software design to extract data from haemodialysis machine and transmit this information to computer, which has installed control software, via RS232 port. Main functions of this system include: Automatic control and management renal therapy - related parameters (NIBP, flow-out water, serum Urea and Creatinine concentration, electric dialysis parameters such as Na + , K + , Ca + , Cl concentration; check the availability of renal machines automatically, automatic change blood pressure measurement modes, HL7 standard data formation, data statistics... in our hardware design, controllable dataflow is tagged with ID, therefore, allow us to work with each separated module in haemodialysis. This hardware and software combination design is effectively support medical doctors and nurses during renal therapy process.
