Deterioration in respiratory condition of Corona-virus (COVID-19), Asthma, COPD and Pneumonia patients is detected too late, leading to complications and death.
Hundreds of thousands of people are now infected with Corona
virus and require tight monitoring of their clinical condition from a distance,
especially their lung function, both at home or isolated area and at the
hospital. Many mild patients are deteriorating fast, reaching severe pneumonia
and require mechanical ventilation and are at high risk of death. Late detection of this deterioration can be lethal.
Moderate Corona patients - at risk of late detection of further respiratory deterioration within the hospital.
Recovered Corona patients - can be discharged early to quarantine environment.
COPD and ASTHMA
Late detection of life threatening attacks in home environment.
In COPD, 20% of hospitalized patients get readmitted within 30 days following their initial hospital discharge.
By the Numbers United States:
- Asthma - 25 Million Patients; 439K Inpatient Annually; 1.8M ER Visits Annually Total Cost to System: $82B
- COPD - 16+ Million Patients; 3rd Leading Cause of Death Readmission Rate: 19.2%; Total Cost to System: $32B
RESMETRIX SOLUTION: EARLY DETECTION OF RESPIRATORY DETERIORATION
Resmetrix has developed a novel wearable respiratory monitoring
system, that accurately monitors the respiratory pattern of respiratory disease
patients (COVID-19, COPD, Asthma) and alert to the patient smartphone, and the
medical team, when early signs of respiratory deterioration occur.
Resmetrix unique wearable sensor (based on novel
proprietary sensor built into a chest strap or a patch over the chest), wirelessly connected to a smartphone app, monitors at-risk patients in
real-time, 24/7, anywhere, in any setting. Resmetrix system is the only system
that detects small changes in a patient’s breathing pattern, tidal volume and
other vital signs (Heart Rate, Temperature) and will provide immediate, early
warning signs of deterioration in lung function (based on each patient
Our tele-monitoring system can monitor Corona patients at
home, at quarantine environment or at the Hospital, send alarm to the
medical teams when patients are starting to deteriorate, so they can provide treatment early,
hence avoiding lung failure and death.
