The role of remote patient monitoring in chronic care

Wireless monitors like VitalStream™ can help to drive down the cost of chronic disease management and deliver better patient outcomes.

Chronic disease management (CDM) is one of biggest challenges facing global health. Chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes are the leading cause of mortality in the developed world by far, and across the world they are projected to account for 69% of deaths by 2030.

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.

Hypotensive Events and Patient Safety: Why Beat-By-Beat Blood Pressure Matters

Acute hypotensive events (AHE) are among the most severe threats to intraoperative and postoperative patients. Monitoring blood pressure is, therefore, a critical function for patients, not only in the operating room and ICU but also in the postoperative wards.

An AHE is defined as a drop in the mean arterial pressure below 65 mm Hg, lasting five consecutive minutes of more. It can be a sign of a serious problem, such as bleeding, sepsis, adrenal insufficiency, or cardiac issues. Not surprisingly, it is associated with adverse outcomes in critically ill patients, such as stroke, heart attack, and kidney failure.

How Continuous Patient Monitoring is maximizing the Benefit of IV Ketamine Therapy

There are currently around 400 ketamine infusion clinics in the US and rising at a rate of 30-40% per year. Such is the demand for intravenous ketamine treatment for severe depression, anxiety and chronic pain.

Since the opioid epidemic, the use of analgesics and anesthetics to treat the rising cases of depression and anxiety has been closely monitored and patient safety is understandably paramount. Caretaker Medical’s wireless, continuous patient monitoring is helping ketamine clinics to deliver the best possible patient experience, while streamlining their workflow and ensuring adherence to monitoring protocols.
