Covid-19 how sensium can help

Sensium is utilising years of experience to rapidly deploy scalable, remote monitoring solutions to both permanent and temporary clinical areas. Sensium’s wireless technology enables hospitals to limit unnecessary staff exposure whilst ensuring close monitoring of Covid-19 patients, allowing real time decisions on treatment escalation.

Sensium is also being used to monitor complete wards of non-Covid-19 patients in the hospital setting. This allows the most efficient use of staff resources to focus on the Covid-19 positive areas with the reassurance that no patients will fall through the cracks.

 Sensium® is the only wearable patch-based vital sign monitor with published data showing clinical and economic benefits.5

Early detection of patient deterioration

Sensium® is a discreet, wearable, wireless system for monitoring vital signs of patients outside of high acuity areas. Sensium accurately monitors and reports heart rate, respiratory rate and axilla temperature every two minutes.

Smart algorithms continuously process and analyse all patient data, generating targeted notifications of patient deterioration, efficiently bringing the nurse to the deteriorating patient.

For the hospital

Within VieCuri we have recently implemented the ‘smart plaster’ SensiumVitals. This was a positive experience for VieCuri Medical Center. We deployed the system in Intensive Care in a short time and with good/efficient collaboration. We have experienced good cooperation with the Dutch branch of the company. Quick turn arounds, adherence to agreements/deadlines and an active attitude! We see SensiumVitals as an innovative product from a committed, collaborative organization. We look forward to further implementation within our hospital.

SENSIUM have supported us every step of the way from initial discussions to full clinical deployment. The Clinical Team worked with us to develop a new Standard Operating Procedure to ensure that the Sensium technology is truly embedded into our clinical work flow.

This could certainly have a use in the emergency department and from the emergency care phase right through the first couple of days in hospital when the patient is much more liable to deteriorate.

We have picked up episodes where the patient has begun to become unwell that we otherwise wouldn’t have done at such an early stage with standard intermittent monitoring.

I believe that Sensium Vitals has enabled us to improve the safety of our patients, as the continuous monitoring notifies staff of changes/deterioration in their vital signs. 
The notifications in vital signs alert the nurses to check their patients, allowing earlier interventions to be made, therefore preventing potential deterioration. I consider this supplementary monitoring an enhancement to patient safety and enriches the patient’s journey.

Ward manager, Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospital

The patches help staff focus their efforts on the patients who needed the most support, It prioritises you.
Nothing will ever replace complete clinical observation and the assessment of the patients. What this does is alert you sooner, so you can fulfil those observations and assessments of the patient and activate the appropriate care and treatment for them.
