How it works
The EarlySense System is contact-free and continuously measures respiration rate, heart rate and patient movement, including an adjustable 6 level bed exit alarm and patient turn protocol verification.
A sensing plate described in multiple pending patent applications with an integrated piezo-electric sensor is easily placed under the mattress so the patient remains comfortable and enjoys complete freedom of movement. There are no leads or cuffs.
Using groundbreaking signal processing techniques developed on a database of over 1,000,000 patient monitoring hours, EarlySense’s Embedded Algorithmic Engine converts the patients’ cardioballistic effect, respiratory motion pattern and large body movements into accurate vital signs and movement rate monitoring.
The patent pending sensing of motion enables effective filtration of artifacts for an extremely low overall alarm rate to prevent “alarm fatigue.”
The accurate results are transmitted and displayed automatically at the bedside, nurses’ station and on additional displays in centralized areas.
The data is also sent simultaneously to handheld devices to ensure intervention of all relevant caregivers throughout the unit.
