Ohmeda Arkive1 Patient Information Management System — an Operating Room Based Database Analysis Network

  • Douglas Brown
Conference paper


The focus of data management within the OR arena is changing. Previously, manufacturers focused narrowly on replicating the manual record to produce a paper record that could be included in the patient’s history file. As computing capabilities increased, the ability to electronically store the information was added but usually for the purpose of retrospective research or more esoteric purposes. Availability of the Arkive Database Analysis System allows the integration of data both pre and post operatively, thus providing information management coverage throughout the anesthesia care process.
