VitalStream™ – Ushering in the wireless era of hemodynamic monitoring
Medical practitioners know that even a brief hypotensive event can harm a patient. This is why the ICU employs continuous hemodynamic monitoring to catch the earliest signs of such events and enable prompt intervention.
However, studies have found that post-operative patients returning to the general ward are still at risk of acute hypotensive events leading to cardiac arrest, and a high proportion of such events are not picked up. This highlights the need for continuous hemodynamic monitoring beyond the critical care wards, a need that can be met by wireless hemodynamic monitoring.Continue reading
