Research Abstract : Reduction of Hospital Noise Level & Medical Device Alarm Fatigue

Avinash Konkani is applying a systems engineering approach to help resolve the problem of increasing noise and false alarms from the medical devices in hospital Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and Operation Rooms (OR). This is an important area: increasing noise levels and alarm fatigue form significant obstacles for clinicians' work performance and adversely affects the patient safety. Today's Intensive Care Units (ICUs) are complex and stressful environments for both patients and caregivers.
