Clinical Trial Demonstrates That EarlySense May Be An Effective Indicator for Respiratory Pattern Recognition

 

Study Results Presented at Society of Critical Care Medicine Annual Congress

 

Waltham, MA, January 13, 2014 – EarlySense, the market leader in Proactive Patient Care Solutions, announced today the results of a small clinical trial conducted at Brigham and Women Hospital in Boston that identifies complex respiratory patterns which were found to be correlated to patient’s respiratory condition and have the potential to show when mechanical ventilation is no longer required.

 

“The study results show that unique, complex respiratory patterns have the potential to predict, on one hand, the patients’ readiness to be separated from the ventilator, but, alternately, also the need for continued ventilatory support.” said Dr. Gyorgy Frendl, MD, PhD, Director of Surgical Critical Care Research, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Assistant Professor of Anesthesia, Harvard Medical School, the Principal Investigator of the study. “For patients recently weaned from the ventilator, the appearance of these complex distress respiratory patterns indicated that they were likely to require further ventilator support:

 

  • Generalized disorganized respirations
  • Frequent [every 30-120 seconds] high amplitude gasping breaths
  • Periods of apnea >30 seconds

For ventilated patients, the above patterns indicated that the patient is not yet ready to be separated from the mechnical ventilator support.

 

“The ability to measure advanced respiratory patterns in a contact-free manner is a promising approach to improve care and keep patients safer.” said Avner Halperin, CEO of EarlySense. We are honored that the EarlySense technology can determine respiratory patterns and provide clinicians with advanced tools to intervene effectively and, if required, early as evidenced in this study.”

 

About EarlySense

EarlySense has brought to market an innovative technology designed to advance proactive patient care and empower clinicians to achieve better patient outcomes. Through early detection, the EarlySense system assists clinicians in identifying and preventing potential adverse events. It does so by providing motion rates and bed exit alarms, to help reduce falls and pressure ulcers, as well as surveillance of heart and respiratory rates to potentially detect patient deterioration. The company’s flagship product, the EarlySense System, is a continuous, contact-free, patient safety monitoring solution that monitors and documents a patient’s vital signs and movement using a sensor that is placed underneath a bed mattress. There are no leads or cuffs to connect to the patient who has complete freedom of movement and is not burdened by any cumbersome attachments.

The system was designed to monitor patients on medical surgical floors who are usually monitored by nursing staff approximately once every four hours. The system is currently installed at hospitals and rehabilitation centers in the USA and Europe. It is also commercially available in Canada. Hospital administrators report that patients, their families and staff feel more comfortable knowing the system is in place. EarlySense Inc. is headquartered in Waltham, MA.
