Pictograms for material organization in acute and intensive care medicine

Currently, there is no uniform system in German hospitals that assists medical staff in finding the needed equipment for treatments quickly. The implementation of such a system is not only beneficial economically, but is primarily helpful in critical situations. Particularly in the field of acute and intensive care medicine, it can save valuable time. In addition to intuitive handling, the system also ensures a sensible sorting of materials avoiding unnecessary organisation and storage.
The growing number of foreign skilled workers will benefit from the system as well. Through a combination of visualization and typography, language barriers can be overcome and complex medical terms are made more accessible. The pictograms might also help teach staff in training. Through a website the system will be easily accessible to everyone.
