EarlySense provides the nursing team with innovative solutions designed to enhance patient safety while minimizing the frequency of false alarms. False alarms due to lead problems can be burdensome for the staff, and cause further safety concerns for caregivers.


With the EarlySense System, the alarm frequency in a typical 8 hour shift can be only 2-3 alarms. In comparison, devices which have been designed and intended for critical care environments can reach hundreds of alarms per shift1.


The Sensor:

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.


Utilizing a piezoelectric technology integrated into a membrane plate, the sensor detects mechanical vibrations of the heart cardio ballistic (motion) effect, Respiratory and patient motion. The signal is sent to the bedside monitor.

The Safety Adaptor Module:

Sophisticated signal processing algorithms analyze the data and accurately measure Heart and Respiration rates, patient motion, as well as indicate patient trends over time.


Data Transfer:

Processed Data is sent (wired or wireless) to the Central Display Station located at the nurses’ station. Alerts sent are dispatched to assigned nurses’ individual hand held devices and to remote viewing displays in the department’s hallways and chosen offices.


EMR Integration:

By design, The EarlySense System operates as an independent self-sufficient network, yet it was intended from its inception to integrate with hospital information systems and medical dashboards.


The interface and integration is done through a Gateway computer to the hospital’s EMR network via HL7, XML, or Cerner CCM client protocol. Additionally, the system is compatible with ADT and Alerting IT Systems.
