Computers are used in many areas of a hospital: In sensors that are attached to patients to detect things such as Pulse rate Temperature Breathing rate Blood oxygen levels Blood pressure The sensors feed information back to a computer which processes the data: Data is checked for any problems (e.g. pulse rate too low/high) Data is logged so that it can be checked later Several outputs from the computer system let hospital staff the patient's condition: A large display / monitor shows graphs of pulse, breathing, etc. A loud buzzer / alarm can be sounded if there is a problem to attract the attention of a nurse/doctor A small printer can produce a hard-copy of the data
