Centrella® Smart+ Bed offers contact-free, continuous monitoring of heart rate and respiratory rate to help you:
- Identify signs of patient deterioration
- Intervene early
- Help promote patient safety
Identify Signs of Patient Deterioration
An integrated sensor in the bed frame detects heart rate and respiratory rate through the surface and updates the readings twice per second. This information is compiled into an algorithm to create a running trend. The bed then alerts when heart rate or respiratory rate exceeds a customizable threshold.
Help Initiate an Early Intervention
When heart rate or respiratory rate exceeds a customized threshold, caregivers are notified via a SafeView®+ System indicator light, GCI touchscreen alerts and audible alerts. Alerts are also sent from the bed to the nurse call system via dome lights, status board and mobile devices.
Help Promote Patient Safety
At one hospital, contact-free, continuous monitoring in an inpatient 33-bed med-surg unit led to3:
- 86% reduction in number of code blue events
- 45% reduction in number of ICU days on patients transferred from med-surg
- 9% reduction in length of stay
