PMD is #MakingEveryBreathCount improving patient outcomes & safety with RespiraSense, a revolutionary sensor platform for continuous respiratory rate monitoring

Critical Care Team

Relative change in a patient’s respiratory rate is the most sensitive and specific prediction of health deterioration.

Respiratory Rate > 27 Breaths Per Minute is the most important predictor of cardiac arrest

RepiraSense gives medical professionals the confidence that future escalations in care can be prevented due to the continuous and non-invasive monitoring of the patient’s respiratory rate while in ICU.

The innovative, discrete device is ideally designed for ICU patients who are at a risk of adverse events. It is proven to greatly improve patient care and clinical outcome, allowing consultants and nurses alike develop more accurate early warning scores.

Respiratory monitoring reduces ICU bounce back

It is widely regarded that relative changes in a patient’s respiratory rate is the most sensitive and specific prediction of health deterioration:

  • Respiratory rate > 27 BPM (Breaths Per Minute) is the most important predictor of Cardiac Arrest
  • 50% of patients with RR >24 BPM suffer serious adverse events
  • 21% of patients with 25 ≤ RR ≥ 29 BPM died
  • 70% of post-operative and 7% of intermediate care patients will suffer respiratory compromise during a hospital stay

The innovative sensor technology ensures better patient care.

  • Predicts future escalations in patient care
  • Allows for early intervention
  • Easy to use
  • Discrete and patient friendly
  • Provides better long-term patient outcomes
