From anesthesia to analytics, each breath builds a more complete picture of your OR.
Advancements in digital technology are driving a new era of brilliant machines, big data and analytics. For anesthesia, it all comes together in the Aisys CS2 — a technologically sophisticated class of digital Carestation™. The Aisys CS2 is a fully digital system designed for seamless connectivity with your other medical devices and your network infrastructure. With hundreds of data points captured during each breath and easy-to-use, cloud-based applications to analyze data, it’s more than an anesthesia delivery system. It’s the central command for your entire OR. Leveraging our 100-year expertise as the global leader in anesthesia delivery, we redesigned the Aisys CS2 user-interface and paired it with numerous intuitive workflow features. We also made it modular and upgradeable, so you can plan for the future while protecting your investment. With a fully digital system that seamlessly connects to the rest of your hospital, the data you collect from each breath can inform the decisions you make to improve your OR.
ICU inspired, advanced ventilation with a personal touch.
The ventilation engine in the Aisys CS2 is built around the electromagnetic proportional flow valve that precisely controls delivered volumes and pressures similar to those found in ICU ventilators like our CARESCAPE™ R860. This helps you ventilate the most difficult patients, from neonates to large adults. ICU flow valve technology provides digitally controlled flow valves for fast response times. The Aisys CS2 ICU flow valve technology quickly achieves and maintains set pressures and volumes to maximize the time available for gas exchange helping you confidently deliver care to all your patients, even the smallest ones.
The lung protective ventilation features on the Aisys CS2 arm you with the resources to configure automated lung ventilation maneuvers. These programmable steps can enhance your ventilation techniques allowing for increasing and decreasing PEEP levels during mechanical ventilation.
More than 300 points of data with one simple connection
In an increasingly digital world, how our digital technologies connect to one another is just as important as the digital information that they create. Especially in technology-rich environments like hospitals. With more and more digital medical devices capturing important information about patients, procedures and equipment performance, you need your technologies to be able to talk to one another and with your hospital infrastructure. The Aisys CS2 was designed to seamlessly connect with other medical devices and with your hospital’s network. Using the industry standard HL7 protocol, it easily interfaces with your EMR, analytics platforms and care systems. Real-time data transmission can be configured to send important physiological, machine and service data automatically to the cloud for analysis and storage.
And because it uses the HL7 protocol, it speaks directly to your EMR without the need for a third-party device. This gives it a plug-and-play ability that allows you to effortlessly connect to your hospital network.
Until now, anesthesia delivery systems have relied on a narrow pipeline to deliver connectivity needs. The Aisys CS2 is designed to bring your connectivity infrastructure up to market expectations with a high speed, dedicated network connection that gives it a plug-and-play usability and a richer data set than previously available.
Real time analytics and real-life outcomes.
The Aisys CS2 captures over 300 data points with every breath — like ventilation modes, PEEP settings, alarms and error codes — to help you track system performance, monitor costs and see where changes can be made to improve the patient experience. We realize that data alone is of little use. It’s what you do with it that provides value. To help you immediately start leveraging your data, we developed several cloud-based applications that address some of the OR’s biggest challenges: agent cost, room utilization and lung protection. These applications are easy-to-use dashboards accessible on your computer or tablet. They provide actionable data analysis and visibility into your OR to help reduce waste, increase room utilization or improve patient ventilation. These three applications are just the beginning. Together, they use less than 10 percent of more than 300 data points available. There is an enormous opportunity to explore new ways of analyzing this data to develop a detailed understanding of your OR.
Carestation™ Insights is a suite of cloud-based applications designed to harness the power of connected Carestation data to create a digital ecosystem of brilliant machines. Cloud-based analytics algorithms and dashboards can transform complex data into actionable insights to help hospitals better drive operational, economic and clinical outcomes. As the Carestation Insights suite continues to grow, so too will the possibilities for better outcomes.
