Patient Monitoring System for Stretchers
Tue, 02/17/2009 - 6:05am
The LifeGurney Patient Vigilance System transforms any patient stretcher into an untethered tracking, assessment and alert system for both cardiac and respiratory functions. Like its sister product, the LifeBed, the LifeGurney tracks a patient's heart and respiratory rate, as well as bed exit attempts, and notifies the nursing team immediately if the patient begins to deteriorate. It can help enhance hospital safety efforts by providing nurses with an "extra set of eyes" while they are tending to other patients, especially in holding areas, ambulatory surgery recovery areas and emergency rooms where patient to staff ratios may be higher and monitored beds may not be as readily available.
