Critical Care Suite

GE Healthcare

**Currently only available with GE Healthcare systems.**
Critical Care Suite, powered by Edison, is a collection of AI algorithms for automated measurements, triage and quality control embedded on an X-ray system. The on-device artificial intelligence solution is designed to identify and help prioritize critical cases such as pneumothorax and identify endotracheal tube positioning.

In addition to the detection algorithms, the application also includes Quality Care Suite algorithms that operate in parallel and aids by automatically rotating images as well as analyzing and flagging protocol and field of view errors.

Intended use statements
Intended use (according to CE) Critical Care Suite is a suite of AI algorithms for the automated image analysis of frontal chest X-rays acquired on a digital X-ray system for the presence of critical findings (pneumothorax), quality checks and/or measurements (endotracheal tube positioning). Critical Care Suite is indicated for adult-size patients.

Indications for Use (full description):
Critical Care Suite is a suite of AI algorithms for the automated image analysis of frontal chest X-rays acquired on a digital X-ray system for the presence of critical findings, quality checks and/or measurements.
When Critical Care Suite includes the Pneumothorax algorithm, it produces an onscreen notification, image overlay, and an image flag to enable case prioritization and diagnosis of critical findings (pneumothorax). This information is also transmitted to the radiologist for review.
When Critical Care Suite includes the Endotracheal Tube algorithm, it produces an on screen image overlay that detects and localizes an endotracheal tube, locates the endotracheal tube tip, locates the carina, and automatically calculates the vertical distance between the endotracheal tube tip and carina. This information is also transmitted to the radiologist for review.
Intended users include the clinical care team and radiologist.
Critical Care Suite should not be used in-lieu of full patient evaluation or solely relied upon to make or confirm a diagnosis. It is not intended to replace the review of the X-ray image by a qualified physician.
Critical Care Suite is indicated for adult-size patients.
