Abstract

Due to busy traffic in the intensive care units, nurses or physicians are usually challenged to monitor and control the intravenous (IV) pumps. In order to overcome this hurdle, we projected a four-phase research study to develop a nurse console that'll monitor and play with the settings of multiple IV pumps from a central location. In this paper, we studied Phase I that is simply simulation of the operational principles of an IV pump. The second phase is all about development of a Software that will have a settings and displaying window, which will eventually be interfaced to a single pump. Revision of the software to add networking capability to monitor and control multiple pumps that'll be integrated with a PC will take place in the third Phase. The fourth and fi
