It's important to acting quickly to diagnose and treat sepsis in the early stages when symptoms first arise. Existing research highlights early detection of patient deterioration is vital to improving patient safety and avoiding preventable deaths.
275: Efficacy of continuous monitoring of maternal temperature during labor using wireless axillary sensors
Documents • Jul 04, 2019 13:53 BST
Physicians using the Isansys technology at Northwell’s Cohen Children’s Medical Centre have discovered that continuous measurement of maternal temperature during labour provides better data compared to standard obstetrical practice. They also discovered that continuous measurement of temperature during labor can detect times when significant fevers are missed by manual measurements.

This paper is part of a series of reports developed to highlight the improvements needed in patient safety and to ease the pressures and daily burdens on healthcare professionals. The report refers to NHS hospitals in the UK and although it was prepared three years ago unfortunately little has changed in that time and we suspect the same trends can be found in hospitals globally.
The Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust have conducted the first wireless study in children, the Real-time Adaptive Predictive Indicator of Deterioration (RAPID) study to - assess feasibility of a wireless monitoring system in ward environment - develop and test smart alarm algorithms for the detection of deteriorations
Meet Sam Sys, Isansys' hero. He has to go into hospital but is scared because of his previous experience. Once he is told about the new revolutionary monitoring platform which will look after him wherever he goes, he feels much more comfortable and settled. Little does he know it will turn him into a superhero... Read the comic book here: https://issuu.com/isansys/docs/comic_book_sp
‘There were more wires than him’: the potential for wireless patient monitoring in neonatal intensive care
Documents • Mar 07, 2018 12:02 GMT
The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) can be one of the most stressful hospital environments. At present, monitoring technology in the NICU requires multiple wired sensors to track each baby’s vital signs. This study describes the experiences that parents and nurses have with the current monitoring methods, and reports on their responses to the concept of a wireless monitoring system.

Heart arrhythmias are one of the top ten reasons why people go to the hospital. Certain arrhythmias can cause sudden cardiac death, which kills 100,000 in the UK annually. According to the Arrhythmia Alliance, 80% of these deaths could be avoided through better diagnosis.
Every day hospitals around the world are under enormous pressure. More patients, sicker patients, fewer resources trying to help them all. When the worst happens outside the intensive care unit the call sometimes comes too late to help. Fortunately, now there is a way to predict critical events in hospital before they happen.
Täglich herrscht in Krankenhäusern überall auf der Welt hoher Druck. Mehr Patienten, morbidere Patienten und weniger Fachkräfte um allen zu helfen. Wenn sich außerhalb der Intensivstationen der Zustand eines Patienten massiv verschlechtert, kommt der Ruf um Hilfe oft zu spät. An English version of this handout is available.
Die Patient Status Engine (PSE) ist ein innovatives, integrierbares und anpassungsfähiges Patienten-monitoring außerhalb der Intensivstation. Die PSE bietet eine kostengünstiges, kontinuierliches und detailliertes Monitoring für alle Patienten auf Station und daheim. An English version of this handout is available
“For years, the digital world has hardly pierced the medical cocoon. Until now. Now, for the first time we have the tools to check vital signs on mobile wireless digital devices and capture all the relevant data from each individual to push the field forward.” Eric Topol Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care. 2013

The Patient Status Engine (PSE) is an innovative, continuous, vital sign data acquisition, analysis and prediction platform that combines unobtrusive wireless wearable sensors, wireless networks, analytical algorithms and big data to provide low cost, continuous, high resolution monitoring for all patients in hospital, and at home.
In just five years, Oxford-based Isansys has developed a lifesaving heart monitor and secured contracts with two Birmingham hospitals. Deals are lined up with healthcare professionals in Germany and the company is already employing 15 staff here and is hiring workers in India. Here Rebecca Weir discusses the secrets of her success.

NHS trials of the LifeTouch technology have produced less erratic readings and allowed the young patients to play and cuddle with their parents. Read the story here
Many agree that healthcare has been slower than most other sectors to pick up on the digital revolution, but developments in technology – especially in the area of mobile, wireless health – has accelerated significantly in the last few years and Keith Errey, CEO of UK firm Isansys, believes that ten years from now, it would be “inconceivable that patients are going to be wired up to anything.”

Technology developed by a company supported by Innovate UK is set to revolutionise the way seriously ill children are monitored and cared for
Documents • May 22, 2015 11:27 BST
Remote monitoring of physiologic parameters has been established in adults; however there is a lack of paediatric data. Doctors and nurses at the Birmingham Women's and Children's Hospital have conducted a pilot study to assess feasibility of remote monitoring in children.
Better monitoring saves lives and money: Improving patient safety through improved patient monitoring
Documents • Mar 19, 2015 12:10 GMT
In 2013, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) reported that patients and their families should feel that a hospital was a place of care and comfort, somewhere they would be looked after. It suggested that monitoring patients by checking them and their health regularly and taking action if they showed any signs of becoming worse would help avoid more serious problems.
