What devices or tools you need for remote patient monitoringThe incorporation of remote patient monitoring (RPM) in the healthcare system is rapidly increasing in developing nations across the globe.

Remote patient monitoring uses technology tools and advanced technology solutions to track the patient data outside the clinical set up. The advanced RPM devices/tools capture the patient’s health data, such as heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation levels etc. RPM technologies cater to advanced delivery of health care with the best solutions.

Remote patient monitoring devices

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) devices enable clinicians and healthcare providers to monitor, report and analyze patient data remotely. Remote patient monitoring devices allow sharing the patient’s vitals at their convenience from home environments. Various Bluetooth-enabled devices enable the acquisition and transmission the patient data to clinicians. Such data is retrieved and reviewed when required by specialists and helps identify abnormal values that indicate an underlying medical condition. There is a wide range of RPM technologies and devices available in the market to address the demand. Every manufacturer is trying to develop an innovative solution that tracks the health data seamlessly, accurately, and error-free. RPM technologies provide comfort to patients who are at a high risk of falls. RPM addresses the medical support uniquely, reduces the healthcare system’s burden, and avoids hospital readmission of the patients.

Types of remote patient monitoring devices

To track the disease progression, recovery speed, or current health condition of the patient, the following are some of the valuable innovations that help to track the vitals:

Ihealth Non-contact Thermometer: The Ihealth thermometer allows us to read the body temperature in just seconds. The built-in sensor of this digital thermometer provides an accurate reading. The ultra-sensitive infrared sensor of the iHealth thermometer records IR energy and provides precise reading in one second. It gives a gentle vibration when the reading is recorded.

RHEMOS Telehealth Monitor: The RHEMOS telehealth monitor is an advanced medical device that measures seven vitals through contactless testing. With this telehealth monitor, no medical supervision is required, and the doctors can view the readings remotely.

The RHEMOS telehealth monitor provides the readings of the following vitals:

• Body temperature
• Blood pressure
• Heart rate
• Blood glucose levels
• Blood oxygen levels
• Respiratory rate

All the vital readings are connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth. The health parameters are displayed on a monitor and accessed by a doctor. Electronic Health Records (EHR) system allow reference and analysis of the patient’s historical health data. RHEMOS multifunctional telehealth monitor is a cost-effective device and requires minimal understanding to operate the device. It also allows contactless testing and minimizes the chances of infection.

Blood pressure monitors: Monitoring blood pressure (BP) is one of the key vitals for many health conditions. Checking blood pressure on a regular basis helps to prevent various heart-related diseases that could even turn to be fatal. The upper arm BP monitors are easy to use and accurate. There are also wrist blood pressure monitors that are convenient and portable to monitor blood pressure readings.

Pulse oximeters: A pulse oximeter helps to check oxygen saturation levels of arterial hemoglobin. A & D Medical pulse oximeters are the most reliable devices with accurate SpO2 readings.

Vital patch monitors: Patch monitors provide uninterrupted and precise insights into patient health. Vital patch monitors are wireless and lightweight, easily accessible patch monitors with customized alerts. These patches monitor 11 vitals and are highly efficient for early risk assessment. The vital signs observed by these patches are body temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, fall detection, ECG, blood pressure, oxygen saturation levels, and heart rate variability.

Activity trackers: A & D medical’s pedometers provide valuable insights into your health and fitness. They are portable devices that track your activity as you step ahead to your wellness journey. A digital pedometer counts the number of steps you moved and calculates the calories burned.

Evaluation with self-owned mobile devices: Providing all-in-one mobile solutions for balance and cognitive testing supports healthcare providers with accurate and precise assessments. Balance testing and cognitive testing helps to take better care of athletes and monitor their health status whenever necessary. The Sway platform enables tracking 22 symptoms, which are the key to athlete health management. This allows to observe the changes in the reported symptoms and address them immediately.
