Nihon Kohden America Presents Educational Sessions at NTI

Demonstrates Enterprise Monitoring Solution for High Acuity and Critical Care Nurses

DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/14 -- National Teaching Institute (NTI) & Critical Care Exposition, Booth #1643 -- Nihon Kohden America, a market leader in patient monitoring innovation, is at NTI 2014 this week showcasing its Enterprise Monitoring Solution that helps save lives and makes high acuity and critical care nurses more effective. At NTI, Nihon Kohden America will also host several educational sessions as part of the Critical Care Exposition.

Nihon Kohden America's ExpoEd sessions are 30-minute educational, in-service-style learning opportunities covering topics that are relevant to high acuity and critical care. Presented by Nihon Kohden registered nurses, participants earn CERP credits for each session they attend.

Nihon Kohden America's ExpoEd sessions include:

  • A Quick Guide to MI Patterns on the 12-Lead ECG - will describe proper electrode placement and the importance of their positions, identify the components and intervals of an ECG tracing, and teach how to practice a systematic approach to 12-lead ECG analysis for determining axis and basic MI patterns.
  • Alarm Management and Nursing Best Practice - Decreasing Alarm Fatigue - will cover best practices and tactics to reduce alarm fatigue to improve patient safety and achieve positive clinical outcomes. Attendees will be exposed to alarm smoothing and intelligent alarm technology to assist in reducing nuisance alarms, thus making alarms clinically actionable.
  • Capnography throughout the Hospital, Realizing Success while Improving Quality and Saving Costs - will discuss the growing number of standards that require the use of capnography monitoring in both critical care and those areas of the hospital with little or no experience with continuous vital sign monitoring. Attendees will learn the impact of these standards upon the critical care environment as well as overall hospital efficiencies.

Each session will be presented multiple times over the course of the Exposition. For a complete list of dates and times, visit the ExpoEd Sessions calendar or stop by Nihon Kohden America's booth (#1643).

"In addition to our patented patient monitoring solutions, we pride ourselves as being industry thought leaders," said Mike Dashefsky, vice president, Nihon Kohden America. "Our ExpoEd sessions at NTI will shine a spotlight on some of the toughest issues facing nurses today and provide tips and best practices for addressing those issues."

NTI is the premier clinical education program for nurses caring for patients with complex health problems. More than 7,000 nurses attend this event each year where more than 400 sessions, plus an intensive preconference program of half-day and full-day workshops, are all available for continuing education credits. NTI also includes the Critical Care Exposition, the largest and most comprehensive trade show focused on acute and critical care nurses. More than 500 companies exhibit each year.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT.

Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps.

The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
