Methods, systems, and apparatuses integrating medical device data are disclosed. In an example embodiment, a vital sign monitor apparatus includes a renal failure therapy interface configured to receive a renal failure therapy parameter from a renal failure therapy machine performing a renal therapy treatment on a patient and an infusion pump interface configured to receive an infusion parameter from an infusion pump performing an infusion treatment for the same patient. The apparatus also includes a vital sign monitor engine configured to display, within a combination user interface of a vital sign monitor, the renal failure therapy parameter within a renal failure therapy timeline, and the infusion parameter within an infusion timeline that is aligned with the renal failure therapy timeline.

A dialysis system having multi-heater power coordination is described. In one embodiment, the system (10a, 10b) comprises: a first fluid heater; a second fluid heater; and a logic implementer (32, 50) configured to synchronize the duty cycles of the first and second heaters so that the first and second heaters are powered simultaneously as little as possible if a collective duty cycle of the first and second heaters is greater than one hundred percent. In another embodiment, the dialysis system (10a, 10b) comprises: a first fluid heater; a second fluid heater; a supplemental power source (14); and a logic implementer (32, 50) configured to use the supplemental power source such that when the first and second heaters are powered simultaneously, a collective current draw does not exceed a maximum allowable current draw of a branch power source (12) powering the system.
