RespiraSense Leads The Way At The 2018 International Society For Rapid Response Systems

DATE: 9th – 10th July 2018

Manchester, UK – PMD Solutions leads the way as the emerging industry leader for continuous and motion tolerant respiratory rate monitoring at the 2018 International Society for Rapid Response Systems (iSRRS). The iSRRS is a global membership organisation committed to being the ultimate knowledge source for those involved in the detection and management of the deteriorating patient and improvement of patient safety.  The International Conference is the key opportunity for relevant clinical and managerial staff – together with policy-makers – to share international best practice in the field.

It covers a range of topics concerning rapid response systems and patient safety, delivered in a variety of ways: lectures, roundtable discussions, pro-con debates, and oral and poster research presentations. All sessions are relevant for medical, nursing, managerial and administrative staff interested in the detection and prevention of patient deterioration, and improving patient safety in our hospitals.

Rapid Response Systems (RRS) have been developed to proactively identify patients at risk for clinical deterioration within the hospital, and to deliver reliable, safe, quality treatment to those individuals. The RRS expands care for the critically ill across the whole hospital. It has arisen in response to the widespread realisation that many patients suffer harm or death due to unrecognised or poorly managed deterioration – particularly in general wards – and is now well established or standard of care in many countries.

Myles Murray, CEO of PMD Solutions said “The annual iSRRS meeting is a flagship conference for PMD to have the opportunity to engage with the global clinical opinion leaders in the detection of patient deterioration. PMD has taken part in this visionary gathering of specialists since the Amsterdam conference in 2015. It is an honour to be the platinum sponsor this year.”

PMD Solutions held a packed lunch seminar on the need for a new reliable standard of care for the monitoring of respiratory rate. Sharing its plans for an industry-changing large clinical trial that will demonstrate how objective monitoring of respiratory rate has both significant clinical and economic advantages for patients and payers, alike.

Presenting at the lunch included President of the society John Welch, and supporting faculty including Dr John Kellett, Dr Frank Sebat, Dr Christian Subbe and Dr Dana Edelson.
