Temporary hospitals were equipped with essential diagnostic tools, monitoring and treatment instruments, such as mobile DR, patient monitors and ventilators.
Under the circumstance of extreme short supply, increasing the utilization rate of devices is of great significance for patients. If a versatile device is applied to multiple departments, it will greatly ease the shortage of medical equipment.
Mobile DR is that versatile device. On the one hand, mobile DR can be used in the emergency rooms or physical examination rooms for COVID-19 diagnosis and infection level classification. On the other hand, it is an indispensable device for tracking recovery situation for patients in general wards and ICUs.
In order to maximize the utilization and dispatch mobile DR reasonably, Peru hospitals made rules and schedules to ensure machine rotating smoothly in various departments.
