Making medical sense.
Minor ailment or life threatening condition?
Rapidly identifying the most critically ill in a waiting room is called triage.
Triage is based on measuring the vital signs (called “vitals”) – patient by patient.
The vitals are the five fundamental parameters of human physiology:
- heart rate
- breathing rate
- blood pressure
- blood oxygen level
Current methods for measuring vital signs are time-consuming, cumbersome and unpleasant. Requiring physical contact with patients, they inherently incorporate a risk of transferring infections between patients.
Deep tech innovation
A device measuring the vitals at arm’s length in less than one minute with no physical contact whatsoever.
Safer and faster prioritization
- Improving workflow by saving time – measuring all vital signs in less than one minute saves 40 – 52 hours every day in the ER (assuming 120-160 patients per day).
- Increased patient safety – increasing the productivity of the triage nurse means reduction of TTT (time to triage).
- Automatic and immediate documentation in EMR and decision support systems removes delay (8 minutes) while increasing both degree of correctness and completeness (no human errors).
- No transmission of contagious disease.
- One device instead of several.
