Anesthesia cart challenge

Ideation

Chinese trolley

We were inspired by a cart we first saw used in China, hence the name for the concept. This cart is primarily used for narcotics. It functions by having a computer with a webcam on top that requires you to log in whenever material is taken out of the cart. The log-in in this Chinese version uses fingerprints for logging in. This also means that all materials leaving the cart is logged and can be used to better supervise how much articles are being used in certain areas of the hospital.

This type of trolley has primarily been used to make sure that nurses are not stealing narcotics, which is an unfortunate reality that hospitals have to account for.

Our concept is to expand upon this system and make it into a fully functioning anasthetic work space. This concept trolley would include spaces for sterile and clean articles that would not need to be strictly controlled, but could potentially still be logged in the system and thereby make the question of storage more easily managable. Our hope is that such a system could replace the current system in the unit storages where stock has to be taken manually and cards with barcodes have to be placed on the wall for the hospitals central storage to come and scan.

Our challenge is therefor mostly based around how one would go about integrating other articles than narcotics in the design of this cart, thereby making it a proper work space for the anasthetic team.
For example; it seems like the space used for narcotics in the cart currently used is not very big. This opens up the possibility of using the upper drawers for narcotics that would require the nurse to log in with a password or a fingerprint, but the rest of the drawers could be easily accessed from the UI by simply clicking on a button on the screen. Logging all articles like this would negate the need for the central storage personell to go to the wardstorage units and scan the barcodes. We imagine that this information could be shared with the central storage automatically. The time saved by this concept could be used to establish teams from the central storage to go up to units twice a day to re-stock the storage.
