Clinical Dynamics created a custom simulator with a preventative maintenance (PM) sequence in the new AccuSim Handheld, Hill-Rom/Welch Allyn Edition. Alongside its automation enhancements, this device offers built-in support for many vital signs monitors from industry-leading manufacturers.
Clinical Dynamic’s manufactures and services the AccuSim Handheld, Hill-Rom/Welch Allyn Edition, and created the simulator in conjunction with Hill-Rom/Welch Allyn.
This specific AccuSim Handheld improves patient safety by ensuring that patient monitors are performing correctly, a vital part of both patient safety and effective medicine. The AccuSim streamlines the preventative maintenance and service tasks of biomedical engineers and supports technicians whose duties include maintaining and servicing a health care organization’s patient monitoring inventory. It is the recommended service tool to perform test and calibration of Hill-Rom/Welch Allyn monitors (ref. CSB 80022216) but can also be used for virtually any monitor from any of the supported manufacturer brands.
In addition to patient safety, the AccuSim Handheld, Hill-Rom/Welch Allyn Edition, also contributes to the overall scope of the health care industry. The preloaded PM enhancements help take user error out of the equation for how patient monitors are serviced. The enhancements also allow companies, such as Clinical Dynamics, to work with the manufacturer to ensure the correct test parameters and sequence are followed by end-users to get the best performance and longest life out of their monitors.
“The greatest part about developing the software that drives the AccuSim was working with Hill Rom/Welch Allyn and gaining their insight into what would be a great way to streamline and improve the service aspect,” stated Clinical Dynamics Chief Engineer Eric Butkus. “The on-screen instructions and sequence really help users complete their service tasks easily and consistently.”
All of Clinical Dynamic’s products are made in the United States with all U.S.-made parts.
