After a rigorous, competitive review, the medical touch screen, CyberMed H22 models were configured with existing Dräger anesthesia machines and deployed in OR’s throughout VCUMC.
Note: Anesthesiologists rely on computers integrated with anesthesia machine to monitor patient vitals, ensure patient safety, and keep accurate documentation during procedures.

Discontinued model of PCs within the Dräger anesthesia work station became too expensive and time-consuming to maintain.
Replace old PCs with new Cybernet PCs and salvage the anesthesia equipment. The EN60601-01 certified CyberMed H22 was customized to integrate with Dräger anesthesia units.
Medical technology gains a second life. Cybernet manufacturing provided a viable and cost effective solution.
