It is challenging for staff to confirm that a patient is safe and breathing.
Conventionally, clinicians must open a door or a hatch and peer into the patient’s room to check whether the patient is breathing. This is highly disruptive to a patient’s sleep and privacy, especially if staff need to shine a light into the room to complete the safety check.
Oxehealths’ Vital Signs gives staff the ability to take a spot check measurement of a patient’s cardio-respiratory vital signs, without entering their room or switching on any lights. It also presents up to 15 seconds of live video to the clinician performing the check, so that they can visually confirm that the patient appears safe.
Oxevision is designed to support existing clinical practice. It does not on its own guarantee patient safety or any improvement in clinical outcome.
