Anesthesia Records, Displays, and Alarms
The field of anesthesia depends on two complementary disciplines. The first can be characterized as therapy. The focus of studies in this area has centered on pharmacology, although recent efforts are giving more consideration to other forms of management of physiology, such as ventilator management. More recently, we have begun to formally recognize the second category, which I would characterize as monitoring-the gathering of information, interpretation of information, the application of these results to management, and the measurement of the response to management. Studies in this area have been largely associated with computers because of the large data flow involved in acute patient care and the need for high precision and accuracy.
