Ventilator monitoring for days/weeks

When a patient is on a ventilator, they will commonly be monitored via the anesthetic sheet for days at a time.

In one circumstance, a hospital had a patient for 5 weeks on a continuous monitor, and the Smart Flow system struggled when the sheet was finalized.

The current recommendation is to ensure the anesthetic sheet is finalized once every 24 hours (if on a 5 minute monitoring interval), which results in a PDF approximately 17 pages long. 

Can this functionality be improved somehow in the future?

    Hi Nicole,

    As we discussed, I was able to get confirmation from our CTO on the recommended timeline for finalizing Anesthetic Sheets. He feels 17 pages (24 hours at 5 minutes interval) should be totally fine, and you can extrapolate from there (ie: 10 minute interval would be 48 hours, and so on).
