EarlySense launches patient monitoring tech to detect sepsis in non-ICU patients

Waltham, MA's EarlySense has added a new feature to its contact-free continuous patient monitors. It says the Multi-Parameter Alert capability monitors patient heart and respiratory rate to spot changes that could be a sign of an adverse event during hospital stays, such as sepsis, which is often deadly if not detected early. "Non-ICU patients are at risk for a variety of complications during hospitalization and early warning signs are often subtle and not easily detected," said EarlySense CEO Avner Halperin. "By providing healthcare professionals with continuous data and timely indication of change through our Multi-Parameter Alert, precious time can be saved enabling early detection and treatment of Sepsis as well as other potential adverse events."
