A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11925439B2) describes a system for reviewing clinical data in a playback mode, comprising an external defibrillator with display screens, memory, and processors, and an auxiliary computing device with similar components. The system allows real-time patient data capture during medical encounters, recording medical events, and providing visual representations of the data on both the external defibrillator and the auxiliary computing device. The playback interface on the auxiliary device enables users to interactively review real-time and historic patient data on an interactive timeline, with features like event markers, data display controls, and a snap-to-event capability for adjusting playback intervals based on medical events.

Furthermore, the system includes features like different visual representations for operational and playback interfaces, various patient interface devices for data capture, and a wide range of physiological data that can be monitored and displayed. The playback interface also offers functions like data preview pop-up windows, playback speed selection controls, event search functions, and medical condition selection controls. Additionally, the system allows for communication between the external defibrillator and the auxiliary computing device via cellular or computer networks, enabling telemedicine communications for treatment recommendations and diagnoses. Alarms generated during data capture, caregiver guidance, and the ability to replay historic patient data moving forward or backward in time are also key functionalities of this innovative system.
