The Patient Status Engine is the only wireless monitoring system which is certified for use on neonates and children.*
Already deployed in several children’s hospitals, the PSE enables the collection of continuous vital sign data from children of all ages. It integrates real-time PEWS and other clinical AI to predict patient status and alert staff to imminent deterioration.
The PSE employs the same basic infrastructure for paediatric patients (including neonates) as in all other clinical applications within the hospital, except that specifically adapted and appropriately sized sensors are used that are optimised for young patients whose physiology is significantly different to adult populations. These well-stratified data are then used in one of four age-related Paediatric Early Warning Scores (PEWS) to identify deteriorating patients before the onset of more serious life-threatening events.
* CE intended use only. (FDA extension of intended use to paediatric populations in progress.)
At Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, UK, the PSE has already been used to collect vital sign data from more than 1,300 neonates, children and young adults. The results are already life changing.
“Kaleb’s been through a lot and having the Lifetouch on him means there are less wires around him, so we can actually be a parent to him.”
