For many patients there is a continuing need to be monitored after leaving hospital. VitalStream’s wireless monitoring system allows ICU-grade patient data to be collected and reported beat-by-beat from virtually anywhere, keeping patients in constant touch with their clinician post discharge.
For COPD patients, early identification and prompt treatment of exacerbation symptoms improves recovery rates, lowers the need for hospitalisation and is associated with a better health-related quality of life (1). With the VitalStream wireless wearable, significant physiological parameters for COPD patients, such as blood pressure, respiration rate, ECG and body temperature, can be continuously monitored and assessed from anywhere in the world.
