Abstract

Patients in an ICU may receive daily chest x-rays. These x-rays are taken manually and may be at different phases of respiration, which limits their clinical usefulness. We examine design issues around automatically synchronizing an x-ray and ventilator in an interoperable manner, including requirements on the individual devices and new safety hazards introduced by connecting them into a system.
