Designing Alarms in medical Devices to Address the Hospital Concerns

Different strategies have been used to provide constant monitoring to sick patients in hospitals. Equipment and system designs have often incorporated the use of alarm systems, which alert the clinician when a certain value is outside its target range. Alarm systems, in general, were designed to signal the presence of a potential hazard requiring urgent attention and to summon the assistance of medical personnel. In the critical care setting, numerous monitoring systems are in place to manage each patient's complex - and often changing - hemodynamics and physiology. These include alarms from cardiac monitors, intravenous pumps, dialysis machines, compression devices and hospital beds, to name a few.

System Safety Engineering

Today we are not dealing with a system. We are dealing with system-of-systems. Safety has become too complex with millions of lines of codes in hardware components and interoperability risks of such components. Not only design engineers should have this knowledge but every technical employee and every manager must have thorough knowledge of the science of system safety.

Designing Medical Devices for Long Life at Lower Costs

The number of medical device recalls was up 28% in 2013 and estimated to be even higher in 2014. Learning to design for durability using risk analysis tools the right way at right time can eliminate many life cycle costs such as production rejects, rework, warranty costs, safety litigation costs, and maintenance and repair costs to customers. Learn how to design it right the first time for not only long life design but understand that no safety related failures should occur during the long life.
