Life Support Systems

hospital_bed/jpgThese kinds of systems are often used for patients in intensive care (e.g. after operations) or for prematurely born babies. This type of system has several advantages:

  • monitoring can be continuously done 24 hours a day
  • no chance of human errors, e.g. due to tiredness
  • frees the nursing staff to carry out other duties

    Unfortunately these systems are expensive to buy, and need regular maintenance.
