Applied Cyber-Physical Systems
In today’s health care environment, it is common to have patient connected to several medical devices simultaneously. These devices can be responsible for monitoring several critical patient parameters such as body temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure. Medical professionals who are in close proximity to these devices get the information provided by various devices and take the necessary action needed such as adjusting the dose of the drug delivered or regulate the breathing. Patient’s life supporting units become totally dependent on medical professionals. Humans are subject to fatigue, miscommunication, distractions, and misinterpretation of the information, and several other factors. These can produce an undesirable patient outcome.
