Diversifying vital signs information with optimized real-time multi-to-many monitoring
WHO estimates show that cardiovascular diseases are the cause of approximately 17.9 million deaths worldwide each year and account for 31% of total deaths, making it the leading non-infectious cause of death. Reports of individuals living alone suddenly passing away at home or bus drivers dying due to a heart attack while on the clock are far from rare occurrences on the news. Today, with the advent of technology, there is finally a solution to these events that used to catch people off guard. Singular Wings Medical has come up with a Group CVD monitoring system that serves as a network-based multi-to-many real-time physiological vital signs monitoring solution. Patients only need to wear a lightweight monitoring patch to allow the back-end system to monitor the real-time changes of their vital signs, thus reducing the chance of sudden death due to cardiovascular failure through active monitoring in place of after-the-fact diagnosis.
