Hospitals challenged with limited space and an increase in high-acuity cases may be treating some patients who traditionally would’ve been in the ICU in the general ward instead. They require a higher level of attention, which puts an extra strain on clinician workflow.
Care providers rely on spot checks to assess a patient’s progress. While that gives clinicians insight into a patient’s measurements at that moment, it isn’t always a complete picture of the patient’s condition.
When used with the Philips Guardian EWS solution, our wearable biosensor provides automatic measurements for key vital signs, so patients can be monitored between spot checks—where they may need more frequent monitoring—and a deterioration in their condition can be detected quickly.
Note: The Biosensor with Guardian currently provides HR, RR, Posture, and Fall detect.
