Abstract: Patients with life-threatening conditions require constant monitoring of their vital signs, such as heart rate and respiration rate. This task is usually performed by a nurse using a bedside monitor for each patient. These devices require a nurse to remain physically close to the patient at all times and each device allows for the monitoring of only one patient at a time. Although nurses can remotely monitor patients from the nursing station, they must remain near the nursing station or bedside. In addition, there are functions that are only available at the bedside monitor, such as silencing an alarm. This project presents an alternative to a bedside patient monitor by utilizing a tablet as a mobile patient monitor, giving the nurse more flexibility. The goal of this study was to establish a set of design guidelines for a mobile patient monitoring application with a user-friendly and efficient interface. To achieve this, a prototype mobile patient monitor application was created and subjected to user testing. The application was then redesigned and once again subjected to user testing. All feedback from users was analyzed to establish future design guidelines.
