CARE Foundation in collaboration with a start-up have developed a wireless physiological vital signs monitoring platform (the monitoring System) to optimize patient management throughout the continuum of care, including in-hospital and home applications. While the initial application for the VMS is focused on step-down monitoring of cardiology patients especially for chronic ailments like CHF, the broader goal is to extend vigilance into environments beyond the hospital and leverage the value of the continuous, synchronized data to unlock clinical informatics and remote patient management services. VMS is comprised of wireless, reusable physiological vital sign sensors (Vios Chest Sensor and Pulse Oximeter) coupled with Bedside Monitor software (BSM) and Central Station Monitor software (CSM).
The VMS allows for continuous monitoring of a patient’s ECG (7 leads), heart-rate, respiration rate, oxygen saturation, pulse rate, axillary temperature and spot checking of non-invasive blood pressure. The Vios Chest Sensor is a low power Bluetooth device that is placed on the patient’s chest via standard electrodes, and the embedded pulse oximeter in the sensor enable measurement of oxygen saturation; these sensors continuously acquire vital signs and wirelessly transmits them to the BSM. The BSM software runs proprietary algorithms that process the received data for display of the patient’s vitals, and generates an alarm if physiological signs fall outside of selected threshold parameters or if cardiac arrhythmias occur.
