ICC 2020: Envisioning a Better Ventilator Monitoring Experience with Ignition

Download to read offline

Shortly after COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, a network of more than 180 of the brightest minds in medicine and engineering assembled to design and develop an open-source ventilator that can be built quickly, at a low cost, and using commonly available components. LifeMech, the organization leading this effort, developed an Ignition-based prototype for a remote user interface that can display data from multiple ventilators simultaneously, providing nurses and physicians with a faster and safer way of monitoring patient status. This session will bring together some of the contributors to this project, including end users, system integrators and strategic partners, as they discuss this important work and how Ignition made it all possible.

  9. 9. Challenges Beyond Ventilator Supply Every patient interaction strains critical (and limited) PPE Photo credit: science.com
  10. 10. Voice of Frontline Workers • GLG facilitated and funded discussions with healthcare workers currently battling COVID-19 in the field • Interviews with intensivists across disciplines revealed a need for remote monitoring of medical equipment • Multiple compensating behaviors in place: cameras, positioning equipment near windows and increasing the typical distance between interfaces and patients • A better solution was needed!
