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

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.

Monitoring at-risk patients better and more frequently is required good practice. The Patient Status Engine allows you to move beyond simply monitoring towards new paradigms in which sepsis may be detected early using low cost unobtrusive wireless wearable “smart patch” technology and new data-driven physiologic biomarkers.

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.
