Adding Devices for ECTs

There is not automatic device association in the isolation room for ECT.  For all PACU pt’s the RN’s have to add a device and then remove it for each pt that gets assigned in any bay.  The same goes for the isolation rooms in which the ECTs are performed.  To add the device:

  1. Look at the neuron in the room and its designation.  (In the ECT room it is NMC 2CPACU-isol17).
  2. Choose Device and Add New in the Intra-op tab.  Choose GE solar 2Cpacu isol-17 and choose the data you wish to Validate and then add.

Also of note, besides removing the device from the pt at the end of the case you would want to discharge them from the GE solar monitor.  This will prevent the possibility of any previous data being pulled from an earlier pt into the current pt’s record. 

Thanks to Dr. Birch for this tip.
