Sitting by the bedside of a loved one, relatives and friends are frequently confused and intimidated with all the numbers, charts, and beeping sounds coming from equipment the patient is connected to. What does it all mean? Is it some cryptic language only doctors and nurses understand? Not at all.
The Vital Signs Mobile App helps family, friends and patients learn how to interpret information presented on display monitors in hospital rooms.
Vital Signs is a valuable guide to understanding Pulse, Blood Pressure, Oxygen Saturation, and Carbon Dioxide readings.
It explains why blood pressure is shown as a set of two numbers? At what point your loved one’s oxygen level needs attention? What do the EKG charts tell you? Are you exhaling too much or too little carbon dioxide? How does a paper bag help with hyperventilation?
Find out how to read and understand critically important information displayed on patient monitors.
