The Truscope app has been devised with the objective of early detection of danger situations for patients undergoing treatment in a hospital. The app issues advance warning against approaching danger to a patient by detecting early changes that could trigger a crisis. Any malfunction of the life support devices can be detected early by the app that rings alarm and draws the attention of the attending staff for corrective action.
•Detection of life-threatening situations: The detection of life-threatening situations was the original purpose of monitor alarms. False negative alarms are not acceptable in such situations because of the danger of severe patient harm or death.
• Detection of imminent danger: The early detection of gradual change that might indicate imminent danger.
• Diagnostic alarms: These alarms indicate a pathophysiological condition (e. g., shock) rather than warning of 'out-of-range' variables.
• Detection of life-threatening device malfunction: This ability is essential for all life-support devices, which must recognize malfunctions, such as disconnection from the patient, occlusion of the connection to the patient, disconnection from power, gas, or water supply, and internal malfunction.
• Detection of imminent device malfunction: The early detection of device-related problems that could result in malfunction is an integral part of many therapeutic devices. These warning mechanisms range from simple aspects (e. g., low-battery warnings) to complex algorithms and sensors that track the wear of respiratory valves.
