CONTINUOUS MONITORING OF HEART RATE, RESPIRATION RATE, AND BED MOTION FOR OUR PATIENTS
EarlySense is a low-acuity continuous monitor. EarlySense consists of :
- A sensor that is placed under the patient’s mattress
- A bedside monitor,
- A central display station
- Software that runs on a PC and integrates with our facilities mobile paging system.
This non-invasive system differs from other patient monitoring systems in that it is a contactless device which eliminates the use of telemetry leads. While the patient is lying flat in bed, the system continuously records heart rate (HR), respiration
rate (RR), and bed motion.
THESE INDICATORS HELP US PREVENT BOTH FALLS AND PRESSURE ULCERS AS WELL AS PROVIDE IMPORTANT INDICATIORS IN CHANGE OF CONDITION.
