Respirasense is a discrete wireless sensor that is ideally designed for general ward patients who are at risk of adverse events pre hospital discharge.
RespiraSense improves patient care and clinical outcome allowing consultants develop more accurate early warning scores.
Early intervention can reduce re-admission rates, producing better patient outcomes and an overall reduction in hospital length of stay for patients.

Continuously and closely monitoring a patient’s respiratory rate can provide an early signal of patient deterioration, therefore allowing for prompt preventative action.
Relative changes in respiratory rate are the most sensitive and specific prediction of deterioration in patients:
