It's reported that up to 17% of all hospitalized patients in the US will experience an adverse event during a hospital stay.1
Early Detection of Patient Deterioration
Early intervention save lives & reduces adverse events.
Most critical events are preceded by warning signs 6 to 8 hours prior to the event.2
Respiratory rate is the #1 vital sign indicator.3
70% of patients with circulatory arrest also experience respiratory problems 8 hours before episodes.4
Continuous vital sign monitoring provides early indication of deterioration, producing just the right amount of clinical data to keep patients safe.
Early Detection Enables Rapid Proactive Response
EarlySense's vital signs monitoring provides contact-free, continuous monitoring of heart rate (HR), respiratory rate (RR) and motion to allow clinicians more opportunities to prevent patient deterioration.
Early detection of patient deterioration empowers clinicians to apply more effective intervention.
Continuous monitoring displays vital signs trending, which facilitates rapid response to clinical deterioration.
Vitals signs are updated twice a second and trended for 7 days, providing a full picture of patient's health and alerting RNs to changes.
Trended information will provide both threshold and advanced alerts. Vitals signs are updated twice a second and trended for 7 days. Real-time alerts are provided to the caregivers.
In published studies, it has shown to produce a 45% reduction in LOS in the ICU for patients coming from the med/surg unit 6
In published studies, it has shown to produce a 86% reduction in code blue events within hospitals 6
19% reduction in re-hospitalization from post-acute facilities 7
How high HR alerts and an increasing HR trend led to the diagnosis of high fever in a non-communicative patient.
