Abingdon, UK, 10th January 2018. OBS Medical limited, is pleased to celebrate the announcement of Excel Medical’s successful FDA clearance for their next generation patient surveillance platform WAVE, featuring Visensia® for the advanced prediction and prevention of patient deterioration.
Excel Medical’s shared vision of eradicating unexpected deaths in hospitals due to medical errors is a step closer with the integration of the Visensia® technology in their revolutionary next generation patient surveillance platform WAVE.
The WAVE Clinical Platform integrates uniquely with the major Electronic Medical Records (EMR) solutions and clinical communication and collaboration solutions. WAVE is a remote monitoring platform that displays physiological data, waveforms, alarms, results and diagnostic information routed through the platform from supported devices and systems.
Visensia® analyses and interprets the combined patterns of up to five vital signs collected from existing patient monitors to generate a single early-warning index; The Safety Index. When Visensia® – The Safety Index (VSI) is used to monitor a patient, an alert is automatically generated whenever their vital signs are outside the boundaries of normality, identifying them as “High Risk”, helping reduce the number of unexpected and avoidable deaths.
