American Journal of Nursing Article Shows ViSi Mobile Yields Improved Outcomes General care ward monitoring protocols typically consist of intermittent spot checks every 4-8 hours. However, patient deteriorations often occur between the checks. Continuous monitoring of patients in all acute care settings can help you prevent costly adverse events, readmissions, and even avoidable deaths! Sotera Wireless, a California-based health technology company, announced the launch of its updated comprehensive vital signs monitoring system, ViSi Mobile. A new article published in the American Journal of Nursing shows that continuous physiological monitoring using ViSi Mobile improves patient outcomes. 97% of patient deterioration events were recognized and treated as a result of this continuous monitoring. ViSi Mobile bridges the gap between intermittent spot- checking and ICU intensive monitoring. The system utilizes comfortable body- worn sensors that allow freedom of movement. The device monitors posture and has a fall detection sensor. It enables highly accurate monitoring of all vital signs, including blood pressure, skin temperature, heart and pulse rate, 3-lead or 5- lead ECG, SpO2, and respiration rate. This leads to more efficient use of clinician time with less spot-check monitoring and allows keeping patients in lower-cost beds and out of the ICU. 75% of adverse events and preventable deaths occur outside of ICU in unmonitored beds. By implementing a precise continuous surveillance monitoring system for your patients, you can improve patient outcomes, avoid costly adverse events, and improve clinical workflow. www.soterawireless. com to find out more!
