Jayadeva uses wearable device to remote monitor ICU patients
For the final three weeks, docs on the State-run Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences have been ready to remotely monitor 50 patients within the ICU with the assistance of a wearable, multi-parameter, telemetric monitoring device.
The device, designed and developed by Cardiac Design Labs in Bengaluru is a monitoring system that may report all important parameters equivalent to ECG, coronary heart price, respiration price, SpO2 (oxygen saturation), physique temperature and BP with out the cuff. The agency has given the institute 50 gadgets totally free.
Jayadeva director C.N. Manjunath stated the device known as ‘Padma Vitals’ has been developed by Anand Madanagopal, founding father of Cardiac Design Labs, and S. Jayaprakash, electrophysiologist, and their groups. “It is a versatile device that needs to be strapped around the chest at the level of the heart. We are using it on 50 patients in both COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 wards in our institute. It can also be used to monitor home isolation patients,” he stated.
“The device is connected to the mobile phones of doctors and the readings can be monitored remotely on the phone,” Dr Manjunath stated.
“As a vitals trend report is generated for the duration of monitoring, we can identify early signs of cardiac issues,” he added.
