e-ICU using BEACON

BEACON e-ICU solution provides remote monitoring of all BEACON systems used in an ICU or in multiple ICUs.

BEACON e-ICU solution offers features for nurses, doctors, RTs and administrators, from simple patient status monitoring to advanced statistical monitoring of patients 

The objective of the BEACON e-ICU solution is for the users to have a simple overview of all patients being ventilated and to plan for optimal workload and ventilation management.

Remote monitoring using iPad

Remote monitoring using desktop application

Mobile e-ICU

Using the e-ICU BEACON iOS system to remotely and on the move monitor patient status in the ICU. The e-ICU Mobile application runs on an iPad.

ICU Overview

The Mobile application shows an overview of the ventilation management status of all ICU patient being managed by BEACON, including:

  • Each patient ventilation management status is shown by the Hexagon (Hexagon coloring can be re-ordered for easy workflow planning) - This will allow for easy workflow planning, as patients with different Hexagon coloring can be allocated to specific staff groups for management.

  • Interventions such as new advice, new blood gas request etc is shown for each patient when requested by BEACON - This will allow for workload optimization as patient intervention is requested only when BEACON prompts it.

Advice and Advice Explore

From the Mobile application you can explore the Advice and the reason behind the advice recommended by BEACON on a specific patient

 

On the top of the screen, the Hexagon is shown. The Hexagon shows the balance of over- and under-ventilation of the current and advised ventilator settings for the patient:

  • Too much oxygen vs too little oxygen,

  • Too much pressure vs. too little pressure, and

  • Too much support vs too little support

It also shows the patient impact based on the Advice recommended by BEACON

The Advice is shown below the Hexagon, where

  • Current is the actual settings of the ventilator

  • Advice is the new advice calculated and provided by BEACON

Patient History

On the Historical Review screen all advices are shown by displaying the Hexagon for each advice (2 are shown in this example)

The Historical review screen is very useful during ICU rounds, in order to provide the ICU Doctor and/or Respiratory Therapist with a simple overview of how the patient has progressed over time

Desktop e-ICU

Using the e-ICU BEACON Desktop system to remotely monitor patient status in the ICU - and monitor patient statistics. The e-ICU Desktop application runs on on a web-browser.

ICU Overview

The Desktop application shows an overview of the ventilation management status of all ICU patient being managed by BEACON, including:

  • Each patient ventilation OR nutrition management status is shown by the Hexagon - This will allow for easy workflow planning, as patients with different Hexagon coloring can be allocated to specific staff groups for management.

  • Interventions such as new advice, new blood gas request etc is shown for each patient when requested by BEACON - This will allow for workload optimization as patient intervention is requested only when BEACON prompts it.

ICU Statistics

The Desktop application shows statistics for patients being managed by BEACON, including:

  • Time on BEACON (time on ventilation for entire ICU) - to allow for performance and cost optimization monitoring

  • Time on BEACON (grouped in number of patients)

  • Comparison quarter by quarter on time on ventilation - to allow for performance monitoring

  • BEACON interventions and time to actual implementation - to allow for workflow and workload optimization monitoring

  • Time on different ventilation modes

  • etc
