Higher Acuity and Complexity
Requires Better Tools

The numbers tell the story:

60%

Unmonitored Continuously

Up to 60% of all hospital patients are not continuously monitored. Vital Signs are only done intermittently.1

75%

Adverse Events Occur Outside the ICU

Up to 75% of adverse events and preventable deaths occur outside of the ICU in unmonitored beds.2

84%

Exhibit Signs
of Deterioration

84% of patients exhibit signs of deterioration within 8 hours preceding cardio pulmonary arrest.3

60%

Unmonitored Continuously

Up to 60% of all hospital patients are not continuously monitored. Vital Signs are only done intermittently.1

75%

Adverse Events Occur Outside the ICU

Up to 75% of adverse events and preventable deaths occur outside of the ICU in unmonitored beds.2

84%

Exhibit Signs
of Deterioration

84% of patients exhibit signs of deterioration within 8 hours preceding cardio pulmonary arrest.3

The use of continuous vital sign monitoring systems in the general care set­ting represents a more proactive approach to identifying patient deterioration, based upon the premise that physiologic changes can indicate, and perhaps pre­dict, deterioration episodes.
