[An automated electronic anesthesia record using a hospital LAN (local area network)].
Masui. 2000 May; 49(5):559-65.M

Abstract

We have developed an automated electronic anesthesia record system using a hospital LAN. As the number of monitors we can use in the operating room is increasing, it is impossible to record all physiologic parameters in a handwritten anesthesia record. Physiologic parameters are recorded every 10 seconds from the anesthesia monitor. An operation ordering system by a hospital LAN has been completed and the patient's data are stored in a host computer, and we can use its data for the automated electronic anesthesia record preoperatively. The advantages of the automated electronic anesthesia record are continuous high quality, more data collection than the handwritten anesthesia record, and the electronic database. During a critical period, the anesthesiologist is too busy to plot physiologic parameters but the automated electronic anesthesia record is reliable and accurate. Disadvantage of the automated electronic anesthesia record is some practice required to input clinical events such as drug administration. The handwritten anesthesia record is easy to use and economical. Ergonomic problems still remain to be solved for wider acceptance of the automated electronic anesthesia record in clinical practice. At the end of the operation, intraoperative data are sent to a host computer and the anesthesia record is printed. We can use this database for clinical research and retrospective case reviews. The implementation of the automated electronic anesthesia record in anesthesia practice will improve quality of patient care.
