App Store Description

The ICU Patient Communicator by SCCM is designed to improve communication between patients and caregivers. This app allows patients who are conscious, but unable to communicate verbally, an opportunity to express concerns or issues related to pain management, comfort levels, and overall well-being.

Communication with patients who are unable to speak is often challenging. Mechanical ventilation, hearing or speech limitations, language barriers and other hurdles may stand in the way of providing optimal patient-centered care.

The ICU Patient Communicator by SCCM is designed to help overcome these common barriers to facilitate better communication, which can be vital in reducing pain and anxiety and increasing satisfaction.

Features include:
- Translation capabilities that allow for two-way communication between patients and caregivers in 19 languages
- A scale that allows patients to identify where on the body they feel sensations of pain, itching and nausea and express the intensity of these sensations
- More than 30 translatable phrases that allow patients to express various needs related to their care and well-being
