Early Detection
Early Detection of Patient Deterioration Improves Response to Adverse Events, Improving Patient Safety

 

With the rising complexity of hospitalized patients, it is reported that up to 17% of all hospitalized patients will experience an adverse event during their hospital stay1.

 

For patients with unexpected clinical deterioration, delayed intervention is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. This prompted hospitals to implement some form of a rapid response system for early intervention of clinical deterioration.

 

Timely response to early warning signs is proven to significantly improve patient safety outcomes:
  • Significant numbers of critical events are preceded by warning signs 6 to 8 hours prior to the event2
  • 70% of patients who experience circulatory arrest have respiratory problems 8 or less hours leading up to the episode3
  • 84% of patients who have developed cardiac arrest had instability within the 8 hour window preceding the event4
  • Responding to early warning signs reduces mortality by 75% and cost by 40%5

 

The two most important predictors for patient adverse events are Respiratory Rate and Heart Rate3, and experts have begun to emphasize the importance of continuous monitoring of vital signs as a means of detecting patient deterioration.

 

In-line with The Joint Commission Guideline – Goal 16

early detection of patient deterioration via monitoring of vital signs will improve patient safety

 

Continuous Patient Monitoring Allows Opportunities for Early Intervention

 

 

EarlySense’s Vital Signs Monitoring provides Continuous Monitoring of Heart Rate (HR) and Respiratory Rate (RR) for:
  • Early Detection of Patient Deterioration empower clinicians to more effective intervention
  • Data-driven Rapid Response Team (RRT) activation

 

 

Proactive Intervention – Trend Indication Facilitates Rapid Response to Clinical Deterioration:
  • Highlighting vital signs trending, which might indicate future deterioration
  • Can be most beneficial to cases in which the patient’s Heart Rate & Respiratory Rate values do not cross the defined thresholds
