O’Connor Using SOTA Patient Monitoring

O’Connor Hospital, part of the Bassett Healthcare Network, has begun using an advanced patient monitoring system that hospital officials say will help save more lives. It provides assessment of heart and respiratory rates at more than one hundred times per minute then sends that info to a display adjacent to the patient’s bed. A small monitoring box worn by the patient interfaces with the monitor to increase the efficiency and frequency of messages arriving to nurses’ stations, allowing care teams to quickly recognize when patients need intervention.
