Software, Physiologic Monitoring, Stress Exercise
Definition : Physiologic monitoring software designed to operate monitoring systems while performing stress exercise, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while monitoring. This software is usually installed in a central station or dedicated workstation, acting as an interface between the central station and other devices such as ECG monitors, exercisers, and ergometers. It may also perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while monitoring. Stress exercise monitoring software is intended to work only with one or a few models of stress exercise monitoring systems, usually from the same manufacturer, also facilitating the processing and/or transmitting/sending data from the acute care monitoring system to and from a hospital information system. The software is not usually available separate from the monitoring system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment. Dedicated software packages intended only for cardiac or pulmonary stress exercise are also available.
