Smart monitoring of vital signs: benefits?

[icon name=”fa-eye” class=”fa-2x pull-left”]Measuring a patient’s vital signs is crucial to detect any signs of deterioration or recovery, and is regularly done. New technology facilitates continuous and smart monitoring at the ward.

The challenge

[icon name=”fa-question” class=”fa-2x pull-left”]Could we detect clinical deterioration at an earlier stage? And could patients play a more active rol regarding monitoring of vital signs?

TheĀ solution

will follow

What did we do?

Together with theĀ Internal Medicine and surgery department of the Radboudumc, REshape explores new technology that could be used to monitor patients more efficiently and effectiveness. REshapes particularly studies the more active role of patients regarding self-monitoring of vital signs.
