By measuring respiratory rate, heart rate, and respiratory effort, as well arrhythmia data, the CardiacSense Medical Watch allows for diagnostic sleep studies to be performed with a high degree of accuracy in the patient’s own home. The watch is able to differentiate central from obstructive sleep apnea.
The CardiacSense Medical Watch can easily spot check blood pressure in the outpatient setting and has similar accuracy to a cuff or wrist blood pressure monitor. Values are recorded and can be sent automatically to the managing physician.
The CardiacSense Medical Watch can continuously monitor respiratory rate, respiratory effort, and heart rate. It can spot check arterial oxygen saturation and blood pressure.
Standard tele health visits do not incorporate any vitals other than what patients are able to provide manually. The CardiacSense Medical Watch functions as a vital signs monitor and allows for the incorporation into the medical record of medical grade vitals such as heart rate, blood pressure, arterial oxygen saturation, and respiratory rate in a remote healthcare setting.
