This minor update fixes several “quality of life” issues that improve the performance and responsiveness of Infirmary Integrated in certain edge cases, especially when making on-the-fly simulations and presentations. Specifically, waveform tracings now respond more robustly to rate changes made to vital signs, including:
- Vital sign rate changes now properly trigger responses in patient physiology and waveforms according to the “apply buffer” timer. This is most notable when simulating a heart rate < 20 bpm or a respiratory rate < 10. For example:
- Before this fix: when simulating a profoundly bradycardic or bradypneic patient, changes to vital signs would take 1 cardiac or respiratory cycle (up to 60 seconds!) before reflected in waveform tracings.
- After this fix: changes to vital signs will be reflected in waveform tracings in 5 seconds or less.
- This does not include waveforms on the External Fetal Monitor (EFM) or Tocograph.
- Loading a simulation file (.ii file) now starts waveform tracings immediately.
- Before this fix: when loading a simulation file, it would take 1 cardiac or respiratory cycle to begin waveform tracings- this could be up to 60 seconds in a profoundly bradycardic or bradypneic patient!
- 12-lead ECG tracings are now labeled in the top-left corner of their leads, simulating real-life 12-leads.
