The update also provides greater flexibility for managing multiple EarlySense systems between divisions or floors, depending on the patient's acuity level."

EarlySense addresses these concerns through continuously monitoring heart rate, respiratory rate and motion, to aid with early detection and empower clinicians to intervene more effectively.
