  • Introduction

    I posed a question regarding battery management with portable clinical workstations, particularly wireless, on the Fam-Med discussion list in June of 1998. As promised, this is a summary of contributions to date (rev: 01 Feb 2002).


    I'd love to hear from folks who've handled battery management with portable clinical workstations. Specifically:

    1. Did you use a wireless LAN?
    2. What kind of charge length did you get?
    3. How many swap batteries/chargers did you use?
    4. How long did batteries last before they had to be discarded?
