Remote patient monitoring allows your doctor to continue monitoring your vital signs even when you are at home.
For conditions with long recovery times or chronic conditions such as asthma, COPD, congestive heart failure or sleep apnea, remote monitoring is a big advantage. Sometimes, you try to schedule an appointment with their doctor but find that they are unavailable for several weeks. You may be forced to seek care earlier in the emergency room. By remotely monitoring vital signs such as respiratory rate and oxygen saturation, any changes or abnormalities can be detected early so that proactive measures can be taken to prevent hospital admissions.
Some people have conditions that only show symptoms occasionally. You may suffer from heart palpitations that only occur once or twice a month which often disappear when being checked by their doctor. By wearing the device, you can continue your daily life while the device monitors your heart rhythm and detects irregularities. If symptoms reappear, even weeks or months later, the external monitoring device will capture and analyze the data so that your doctor can make an accurate diagnosis and intervene in a timely manner.
Thanks to modern technology, various devices such as the CardiacSense watch can monitor your vital signs and transmit them to your personal doctor. This provides peace of mind, knowing that doctors can still “follow” you as soon as you leave the care facility. These devices can also provide comprehensive and accurate care during telehealth consultations.
