Interface between user and ventilator

22. May 2020

GUI – that means Graphical User Interface. This abbreviation refers to a form of user interface of a computer, which makes the application software operable by means of graphical symbols and control elements.

The PV1000 also has such a GUI and within the project, a whole team is responsible for its development. The GUI forms the interface between ventilator and user. Therefore, the communication of the interface must be clear and easy to grasp. In an emergency, the medical staff must be able to see immediately what the problem is and what needs to be done.

The GUI team puts a lot of energy into the design and development of the interface. Which values should be displayed in the basic state? How are alarms displayed? Which form of navigation is particularly user-friendly?

The team answers precisely these questions to ensure that the PV1000 has an optimal GUI.
