Potassium Monitoring and Alerts
Our new Arden-Syntax-based medical content package Potassium Monitoring & Alerts checks for pathologically increased or decreased potassium levels, gives indications what medications or conditions could be responsible for these levels, and advises on further checks. The package can be used with our ArdenSuite software and has already been shipped to our customers.
We offer several application-ready medical content packages that can be used with the ArdenSuite. They target different issues in clinical routine and can be—for example—connected to the hospital’s EMR system. Results can be displayed in an area of the EMR’s user interface.
The Potassium Monitoring & Alerts package is part of our Clinical Alerts and checks and monitors a patient’s potassium levels during the hospital stay. Especially in patients who suffer from multiple conditions and take a variety of different medications, pathological increases or decreases of potassium levels resulting in hyper- or hypokalemia are not uncommon. This package checks for pathologically increased or decreased potassium. Suggestions are given to indicate what medications or conditions could be responsible for pathological levels. Specific checks are advised (especially useful for doctors in training). If the last known value was not within normal range, an alert for further testing is generated upon the patient’s discharge or after a specified amount of time has passed. Previously measured potassium levels are considered in order to notice adverse trends.
