Abstract

See full text

There is provided a central control network for a patient care and treatment device comprising data and power networks with data and power ports, respectively. A power receiver is in electrical communication with the power network and receives power from a power source. A control unit is in electrical communication with the data and power networks and transmits operational instructions along the data network. The device additionally comprises at least one medical module including a medical device capable of performing discrete medical functionality. The module further includes data and power connectors connectable to the data and power ports, respectively. A data adapter is in electrical communication with the data connector and the medical device and translates communications between the data network and the medical device. A power adapter receives power from the power network via the power connector and converts the power according to the medical device power requirements.
