With these two new IVs, Roscoe has a total of 3 IVs again (foot, left arm, right arm) along with sensors for CO2, oxygenation, heart rate, breathing rate, and another sensor to measure the fluid content in his system. This is what his room looks like as a whole:
In the upper left is the screen that displays his heart rate (green), blood pressure (red), fluid content (white), breathing rate (yellow) and oxygenation (blue):
Below that screen on a small shelf is another machine which monitors his CO2 levels through a sensor attached to his leg. They measure his CO2 because higher levels of CO2 will cause Roscoe's blood vessels to constrict which will increase his blood pressure:
To the right of the screen is a small green screen that controls his continuous feeding (currently at 27mL per hour). Below the screen are two separate pumps that run fluid through his unused IVs to keep them flushed to prevent clogging:
Below Roscoe's bed is a small machine that was injecting potassium into his system to replace any that he lost due to the diuretics he's been taking this past week to keep him from building up fluid in his lungs while he's on nitric oxide.
To the right of Roscoe's bed is the machine that supplies his oxygen at a specified breathing rate and pressure. The top line on the chart you can see a distinction between the breaths that Roscoe is making (smaller) and the breaths that the machine is making (larger):
The output of that machine gets mixed with nitric oxide by another machine further to the right. For those who've read this far, despite the lack of cute baby pictures, you'll be excited to learn that last night his nitric oxide was at 15ppm and Roscoe wasn't stable enough to be weaned to 10ppm. That's exciting because tonight when we left, he was extremely stable at a level of 7ppm:
