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
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.
“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

Sepsis patients can be diagnosed and treated earlier with the help of new technology available for hospitals and healthcare settings. Healthcare professionals can now use the Patient Status Engine to help doctors and nurses rapidly pick up the illness,. saving some of the 44,000 lives lost to it each year in the UK
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.
Isansys is a company that digitises life at both home and in acute care settings. It has developed a technology which no longer ties patients to the hospital bed or tangles them within over-sensitive and sometimes temperamental wires and cords, but instead allows them the freedom to heal in a safe environment.

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

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.
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.

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.

Isansys will use funding from the SBRI to extend its existing CE marked Patient Status Engine real-time wireless vital sign acquisition and analysis system to provide warning notifications of sepsis in patients at home at an early stage in the critical 72-hour period.
