In this thesis we explore the possibilities monitoring the patient outside of the operating room using a mobile monitor. Anesthetists are responsible for the patient’s wellbeing and carefully monitor their vital signs for irregularities. When the anesthetist is outside of the operating room they rely on assistants for monitoring. Providing the anesthetist with a mobile monitor can reduce human error by keeping the anesthetist informed outside the operating room, facilitating early detection and reducing biases during consults. Based on exploratory interviews with anesthetists a prototype was developed and tested in a diagnostic reasoning experiment. This resulted in several improvements in the design of the mobile monitor. In a second experiment we’ve pursued the possibilities of using a polygonal display in the mobile monitor for a quicker detection of complications.
