Better care through the early detection of Sepsis

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

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.

Market Analysis and  Health Economic Benefits of the  Patient Status Engine

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.

Wireless monitoring of physiology can be achieved

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

‘There were more wires than him’: the potential for wireless patient monitoring in neonatal intensive care

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.

Patient Status Engine addresses patient safety issues to save lives

The Isansys Patient Status Engine addresses critical patient safety issues that cost the NHS and estimated £5billion annually.

Better diagnosis of heart arrhythmias with remote patient monitoring

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.

Der Patient im Mittelpunkt - Early Warning Scores

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.

Clinica’s Medtech Ventures:  Isansys Lifecare Ltd

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.”

Remote Monitoring of Physiologic Parameters is Feasible in Children

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

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.
