Interfacing medical devices
The Multi Medical Alarm Module (NIMA) is a single switch module with two buttons and four medical alarm inputs for the distribution of alarms from four third party medical devices. third party medical equipment can consist of infusion pumps, ventilators or other life supporting systems. The NIMA has one high priority, one medium priority and two low priority inputs. The NIMA is available in gray (NIMA-G4E / NIMA-G4D) or white (NIMA-W4E).
Patient safety first
To support staff in always attending to the most urgent alarm first, the MMA indicates the type of alarm and the level of priority of each alarm. Also, medical alarms can only be reset at the medical device ensuring that staff cannot remotely delete an alarm by mistake.
Confidence in connection
When a medical device is connected, the MMA signals a secure and functioning connection, and the device alarm functionality can always be confirmed with a test feature. Each connector is monitored for wear by an integrated mating counter which helps prevent unexpected device failure and facilitates planned maintenance.
Tackling alarm fatigue
The connection to the Ascom teleCARE IP nurse call system ensures that all medical alarms are sent to staff with the appropriate competences. A medical device can be disconnected without producing an accidental or unwanted alarm by using the intentional disconnect function which also indicates when the device can be safely disconnected. The MMA module has been designed to conform to the MDD (Medical Device Directive) and other applicable regulations in EU/EFTA.
