Improving care for critically ill patients.
Our Two Minute Walk-Through
Once installed you can setup your first patient (You get a trial period to try it out).
Enter your ICU name, the patient's first name, their admission date and an email address for reports.
This is the home screen of the app, divided into communicate and rehabilitate sections.
Communicate. Allows the patient to let you know what is happening and any issues they might have.
Point to something allows a patient to communicate common issues, without speaking.
Here the patient has communicated 'no' to a question. The buttons are large and clear for ease of use.
There are also default people who the patient might want to contact (you can also add your own choices).
There is also a drawing pad for image based communication.
The patient can simply use their finger to draw in the area.
For more specific things, the patient can type on a large keyboard, which can be saved to the diary.
If a patient is experiencing pain, simply tap on an area of the body for a list of common pain issues.
Here the patient has tapped on the chest. Tap the type of pain to score that pain for the clinician.
Here the patient is scoring the Chest (Sharp) pain for the clinician.
The result can be saved to the diary, to keep a record of pain issues for that patient.
The patient can also identify a problem using a body they can tap on.
These are the options for when the chest area is tapped. You can also add your own choices.
Rehabilitation. This section contains exercises, a diary and a sleep tool.
There are several exercises created by a team of physios. These exercises can be turned on or off for a patient.
This is an exercise before it has been played. To play it the patient taps on the play icon.
An exercise video during playback.
Once the exercise has finished playing, the patient can score how difficult they found it. This can be saved to the diary.
This is the diary where saved entries are stored. You can delete and manually create diary entries.
Manual diary entries can be created, so relations can record events that the patient can view.
There is a sleep section that uses blue light therapy. The research for this can be viewed by tapping on the '?'.
The blue light therapy can be watched for a period of time specified by the patient.
There is a clinician menu to access pain, sedation and delirium scoring tools.
This is the visual analogue tool. Results can be saved to the diary.
This is the Non-verbal Pain Scoring tool. Results can be saved to the diary.
The Critical Care Pain Observation Tool (CPOT). Results can be saved to the diary.
The Behavioural Pain Scoring Tool. Results can be saved to the diary.
Ramsey sedation scoring tool. Results can be saved to the diary.
CAM-ICU Scoring Tool. Results can be saved to the diary.
Intensive Care Delirium Screening Checklist (ICDSC). Results can be saved to the diary.
Everything that is saved to the diary can be reported on. You can specify a date range and include/exclude categories of entry.
The report can be viewed within the app and emailed for viewing externally.
When the patient has been discharged and a report generated, the app can be reset for the next patient.
Resetting removes all content and puts the app back to its default state. You would use this when preparing for the next patient.
If you want to reorder / edit or add an icon to the point to something area, you can use this screen.
Here the icons are being reordered.
Here a new icon is being added.
The clinician can also permit / not permit a patient to view specific exercises.
