Detect Patient Deterioration Earlier
Enhance Patient Safety
Prevent Falls & Pressure Ulcers
Reduce Staff Alarm Fatigue

The EarlySense System is a contact-free, fully integrated patient monitoring supervision platform that provides continuous vital sign and motion information for general care patients.

 

The Central Display Station (CDS) at the nurse station helps on-duty nurse continuously supervise the status of patients in the department, and allows the fastest way to attend to patients whenever needed, thereby facilitates more timely intervention by the clinicians.

Early Detection of Patient Deterioration Improves Response to Adverse Events, Improving Patient Safety
  • 70% of patients who experience circulatory arrest have respiratory problems 8 or less hours leading up to the episode
  • 84% of patients who have developed cardiac arrest had instability within the 8 hour window preceding the event
  • Responding to early warning signs reduces mortality by 75% and cost by 40%

 

Fall Prevention

Patient falls occur in up to 3% of all acute care hospitalizations. An estimated 30% of inpatient falls result in serious injury.

 

The EarlySense System is designed to allow "the fastest way" to the patient. This enables the nurse to be at the bedside before the patietn has existed the bed in order to ensure the patient's safety. It allows perosnalization to the needs of the patient and automatic adaptation to the unique needs at night.

  

Pressure Ulcer Prevention
  • Turn counter exceeded alerts matching various protocols (every 1,2,4,6 hours)
  • Timely turn reminders to staff’s handheld devices
  • Unit reports verify nurses’ compliance with turn protocols to assess and improve the department’s performance
  • Individual status reports on patient’s minimal or high motion activity during the night

 

Reducing Alarm Fatigue

Alarm fatigue occurs when staff is overwhelmed by large numbers of alarms. Too many alarm signals result in alarm desensitization which can lead to missed or delayed alarm response. 

 

With the EarlySense system, the alarm frequency in a typical 8 hour shift can be only 2-3 alarms. In comparison, devices that have been designed and intended for  acute care environments can reach hundreds of alarms per shift.
