Abstract

Nurses in an eighteen bed multi-disciplinary Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) have helped to develop a bedside computer system which automatically records the patient’s physiological variables such as heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate from the bedside monitor on a minute to minute basis and graphically displays this information on a bedside microcomputer. The graphic display of this detailed information facilitates the astute observation of patterns and trends in the patient’s physiological status (Figure 1).
