SAN DIEGO, May 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sotera Wireless, a leader in the drive to make healthcare safer through continuous multiparameter patient monitoring, will exhibit its ViSi Mobile® System at the American Association of Critical Care Nurses National Teaching Institute and Critical Care Exposition being held in New Orleans from May 17 to May 19, 2016. Meeting participants are invited to stop by Sotera's booth #2747 to learn more about the advantages of patient surveillance monitoring in general medical and surgical hospital units.
The ViSi Mobile System is a wireless, wearable platform that continuously monitors all patient vital signs and communicates data to clinicians. By alerting clinicians to vital sign fluctuations that signal patient deterioration, the ViSi Mobile System can enhance a hospital's rapid response system.
"We support the movement to explore innovative ways to detect and respond to deterioration in the health of hospitalized patients and believe that continuous surveillance of patient vital signs is key to both recognizing and reporting physiological instability," said Rosemary Kennedy, Sotera chief nursing officer. "Evidence demonstrates that the highest-specificity indicator for at-risk patients is a combination of heart rate, respiratory rate, systolic blood pressure and change in mental status. The ViSi Mobile System monitors heart rate, respiration rate, and continuous non-invasive blood pressure (cNIBP), along with SpO2, pulse rate, and skin temperature, providing a multiparameter solution.
Each year more than 6,000 influential nurses attend The Critical Care Exposition, the largest, most comprehensive trade show for acute and critical care nurses, advanced practice nurses, clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, nurse managers as well as progressive care, transport and emergency department nurses who treat critically ill patients. The Exposition is a source of leading technology, innovation and education relevant to the practice of nursing medicine.
