The central monitoring station is computer systems that are networked with a fixed number of patient monitors. The central monitoring station displays the associated monitoring device waveforms on a single or multiple monitors. The central monitoring station further allows the healthcare professionals to monitor and keep a check on the number of patients at the same time. Most of the central monitoring station allows the monitoring of at least two waveforms. Based on the configuration, the central monitoring station may include the modules for various parameters like respiratory rate, ECG, body temperature, cardiac output, SpO2, and others. The main monitor of the central monitoring station is placed in the central station.
The central monitoring station is generally used in the surgical areas, medical area, and cardiac rehab centers, and can also be used with telemetry devices. Usually, a central monitoring system has a lifetime of around 7 to10 years and may cost approximately US$ 4,500 to 40,000. The central monitoring station has only one major requirement, which is an uninterrupted power supply. Additionally, the central monitoring station also has the capacity to save the data for a limited period of time which allows the healthcare professional to review the data when required. The central monitoring station is able to network with a limited number of monitoring systems. For example, the central monitoring station can be connected to 8, 16, 32, 64, 72 and sometimes even up to 240 monitors.
Central Monitoring Station Market: Drivers and Restraints
Over the past few years, it is observed that the healthcare industry is strongly addressing the healthcare professional’s pain points. This is increasing the number of hospitals in emerging countries. Increasing number of hospitals increases the number of hospital beds and upsurge the need for a centralized healthcare system which drives the growth of the global central monitoring station market. Moreover, an increase in the number of patient hospitalization is further boosting the growth of the global central monitoring station market. However, due to the limited flexibility of the central monitoring station in terms of the number of connected monitors may hamper the growth of the global central monitoring station market. Presently, the central monitoring station is still not used much as it is still believed that the hospital personals could pay more attention to the devices more than the patient itself. Many medical professionals believe that even a reliable central monitoring station cannot replace the frequent and direct observations. In addition, there is always a risk of misleading alarms that might cause alarm fatigue and as a result, the staff may miss an actually critical patient. These are some of the factors which may also hinder the growth of the global central monitoring station market.
