Isansys markets Patient Status Engine plug-and-play monitoring
1 October 2013
Isansys Lifecare Limited has announced the market availability of
its Patient Status Engine, a plug-and-play continuous wireless vital
signs monitoring system.
The PSE continuously collects multiple vital sign data, securely
and straight out of the box. It analyses and delivers the status of
any number of patients in real-time, to any location.
The system incorporates the Isansys LifeTouch cardiac monitor — a
lightweight and unobtrusive smart patch that collects data directly
from the patient and analyses every heartbeat to provide continuous
heart rate, respiration rate and heart rate variability. It also
includes a remotely triggerable ECG visualization function for
set-up and verification that may also be used as an event marker.
With a wireless pulse oximeter and blood pressure monitor, a
patient’s physiology is automatically uploaded as a series of secure
digital files to a patient record and may be accessed on any
authorised computer, tablet or smart phone.
The PSE kit also comes pre-bundled with several apps, such as
patient charting, early warning scores and real-time HRV plots,
useful for the determination of autonomic function.
In an industry first, the PSE offers clinicians and researchers
the ability to deploy their own unique apps to aid clinical
discovery, adverse event prevention and the generation of big data
sets. In addition the PSE has an API that presents the “digitised
patient” on an interface that may be opened for straightforward
integration into other hospital information systems, electronic
health records or digital health clouds.
