Early Detection of Patient Deterioration

The Sensium was constructed to help medical professionals minimise patient deterioration by continuously monitoring vital signs and updating you on your patient’s status every two minutes. By steadily measuring your patient’s Temperature (T), Heart Rate (HR), and Respiratory Rate (RR), the Sensium picks up even the slightest of physiological changes that could suggest an onset of deterioration. With such technology on your side you could significantly improve the chances of a quick and complete patient recovery.

Updates Automatically Every Two Minutes

Our Sensium System has been developed with the aim of improving patient care during the hospital stay. Compared to conventional methods of monitoring, the Sensium has shown better overall performance, both in terms of accuracy and consistency of its operation. By updating data every two minutes the Sensium allows you to notice changes that indicate your patient’s condition is deteriorating, a frequency of updates that would be impractical by means of traditional methods of patient monitoring. As impressive as the System’s frequent observations are, their accuracy is just as equally impressive, rivalling the accuracy level of high-grade ICU patient monitors (Hernandez-Silveira, Wieczorkowski-Rettinger, Ang, and Burdett, 2015)1.

Suitable For Use against COVID-19

Unfortunately, with the current COVID-19 pandemic a lot of medical facilities have experienced resource shortages, as well as devastating losses of staff. While the number of patients is on the rise, there are simply not enough medical professionals to tend to and monitor all of them. However, with the Sensium being easily adjustable to cover a large number of patients, you will be able to constantly monitor patients’ vitals and intervene when necessary. The System is automatically configured to alert you if the vital signs of a patient exceed the clinically pre-defined limits, giving you enough time to adjust the patient’s treatment.
