Does anyone have experience with temperature monitoring system from Aeroscout?

Recommended Posts

My IT dept wants us to look at a wireless temperature monitoring system from Aeroscout that apparently works on a Cisco system (not sure exactly what part of IT that is). Does anyone use this for their Blood Bank and if so, how is it?

My hospital recently purchased the Aeroscout system. At one point I was asked for some information regarding Blood Bank requirements and I took that opportunity to suggest several other vendors that I know are familiar with our requirements (having never heard of Aeroscout). Regardless, they purchased the Aeroscout system. I later arranged a conference call because I wanted to know what other facilities were using their system in their blood banks, what kind of validation support they might offer, etc. When I asked for a local reference (I live in California), they referred me to a hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil! Needless to say, they are newcomers to this industry. I volunteered to move the blood bank to the second phase of our installation; to my knowledge they have had multiple problems with phase one and are still not getting reports (it's been several months). Wish I had something positive to say as this will be my system, but so far, not so much.

I want to bring up this topic again.  It's been ten years since the original post.  Is anyone using aeroscout remote temp sensor for their blood bank monitoring?  I have been playing with a test device.  It has a locator so I am wondering if anyone throws these devices in coolers to accompany the blood to Surgery?  I can see exactly where our BB cooler is at any time!  I am thinking that if I create a full temp report  (every 5 minute) of the cooler while it is in Surgery, I can let them keep blood longer than 4 hours (as long as we validate the coolers to maintain temp beyond 4 hours).

Anyone using a remote temp sensor to this capacity?

We have not had the greatest experience with Aeroscout.  It frequently fails to send readings even though it is still reading the temp.  I don't know that I would trust it to monitor a cooler.

We have Aeroscout. It’s not 100% reliable but for the most part it’s fine. We get reports every 12-hours that lists all the lab devices. If the server goes down you will not get the reports, but I believe they can be generated by Biomed once server is back up.
