Instead of monitoring single parameter deviations as traditional devices do, Visensia® utilizes revolutionary technology which integrates the clinical values of five vital sign parameters (heart rate, blood pressure, SpO2, skin temperature, and respiratory rate) into a more meaningful and insightful parameter, expressed as a numerical index (the Visensia® Index). This Index represents the patient's wellness in real-time.

Faster emergency response times have improved patient outcomes, as well as reduced operational costs and expensive re-admissions. This has caused the patient monitoring industry to focus on innovations in connectivity and monitoring intelligence. While most new solutions are developed on the same basic and similar platforms, OBS Medical has broken new ground with its innovative approach to vital sign interpretation. Its safety suite not only helps detect abnormalities earlier but also nearly eliminates false-positives produced by individual vital sign monitoring.

“Unlike the traditional monitoring algorithms, the Visensia® is not a one-size-fits-all application; it personalizes patient monitoring by evaluating the 'normal' thresholds for individual patients the and Visensia® Index against pre-measured normal thresholds,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Mike Arani. “The addition of this innovative solution to any monitored unit will greatly boost alarm integrity and timeliness.”

Alarming facilitates centralized monitoring by alerting clinicians to the patients that require immediate care. Low alarm integrity could compromise clinical workflow and efficiency. Therefore, hospitals seek monitoring solutions that can enhance alarm accuracy and confidence in critical care applications.

There has been a growing trend in patient monitoring alerting systems to implement “secondary” alarm notifications generated at the central stations. These alarms are based on preconfigured algorithms, wherein an alert is sent to the rapid response team (RRT) when the alarm conditions are met.

Clinical trials of the Visensia® suite have proven that approximately 95 percent of the alerts generated by Visensia® were true. Moreover, Visensia® VitalAlert™ has detected 100 percent of severe clinical deterioration (requiring MET/RRT call) with a mean advanced warning of 6.3 hours.

“The Visensia® Hospital Patient Safety Suite can be integrated with any patient monitoring solution in the market,” notes Arani. “It can collect and analyze all five vital parameters from conventional bedside or telemetry monitors, thus enhancing the hospital's existing monitoring system without the need for costly upgrades.”
