Abstract

An evaluation of a newly CE approved bedside monitoring device used in a general hospital ward is presented. This evaluation has shown that it is feasible to use the systemwithin this environment to provide medical staff with supplementary information on patient health, at more frequent intervals than traditional monitoring methods. Thephysiological data recorded by the body worn device is wirelessly transmitted to a patient management system for storage and display. Good correlation between heart rate values recorded by hospital staff and those recorded by the automated Vitalsens VS100 system was observed. The system has highlighted clinical information that routine observations alone did not readily identify. This can provide clinicians with a better view of the overall health status of the patient. Such medical issues include those witnessed in this study, namely paroxysmal AF, ectopic beats, increasing heart rates recorded prior to a hypoglycaemic event, general high and low heart rate trends and various instances where clinically relevant ECG data has been captured.
