Detecting early deterioration, reducing ICU readmissions
Many patients, after being discharged from the intensive care unit (ICU), are at high risk of clinical deterioration and readmission to the ICU. Continuous monitoring of vital signs provides an opportunity to detect and treat clinical deterioration at a very early stage.
Several monitoring systems have recently been developed for the wards to increase alertness during the patient’s ICU stay.
- Discuss challenges and opportunities for ICU specialists while implementing automated continuous noninvasive ward monitoring (EWS).
- Provide an overview of the postoperative ward monitoring for early detection of patient deterioration.
- Highlight the importance of the patient’s home monitoring and discuss the impact and support of technology.
