Case Study:

Emergency Response

If a Heart Failure patient is experiencing shortness of breath, it will not only be difficult to obtain information, but could also compromise the patient's condition by forcing him or her to exert. For such a patient , fast and reliable analysis is an important live saving tool. 

i2Dtx CardioSleeve transmits and records real-time high fidelity 3-Lead ECG, Heart Sounds and analyzes Systolic Performance Index at the point of care for a rapid intervention.  This saves time, and lives.

 

   
 

Case Study:

Identifying Heart Failure

About 5.1 million people in the United States have heart failure and it costs the nation an estimated $32 billion each year.


CardioSleeve Systolic Performance Index analysis at any point of care  improves CHF management for patients in the hospital and after discharge, resulting in fewer hospitalizations and readmissions.

 

   
 

Case Study:

ICU Transfer and Mortality Risk

Patients who become critically ill during hospitalization, the longer the delay in transfer to the intensive care unit (ICU), the longer the hospital stay and the greater the risk for mortality. (Society of Hospital Medicine 2015)

i2Dtx Vitals Risk Index stratification tool has the potential to lead to earlier recognition of impending critical illness and improve outcomes for these patients.

 

   
 

Case Study:

Risk of Sudden Cardiac Death and Abnormal QTc Interval


After adjusting for other risk factors, the risk of sudden cardiac death is more than 3-fold higher in individuals with abnormal QTc compared with the normal.

Several commonly used medications such as antibiotics, diuretics, heart medications, anti-depressants, anti-histamines, cholesterol lowering drugs  induce prolonged QTc.

CardioSleeve ECG digital caliper instantly calculates QTc and alerts the physician about the latent risk.

Case Study:

Murmur Detection for Hypertrophic Myopathy

36% of young athletes who die suddenly have probable or definite Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. (American Heart Association)


CardioSleeve murmur detection algorithm helps  distinguish innocent from pathologic murmurs.  During a pre-participation screening for athletes a finding of pathological systolic murmur should alert a clinician to do further testing for Idiopathic Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.

 

   
 

Case Study:

CardioSleeve for Silent or Symptomatic Atrial Fibrilation

Atrial Fibrillation (Afib), which affects as many as 3 million Americans, increases an individual’s risk of stroke by 4 to 6 times on average.


An instant ECG exam with CardioSleeve is invaluable in detecting silent or symptomatic Atrial Fibrillation at any point of care.

 

   
 

Case Study:

Non Contact Thermometer Reduces Contamination

From a hygienic standpoint, with many illnesses being transmitted via body fluids, avoiding contaminating the thermometer with sweat is always the best option.


By avoiding skin to skin contact with i2dtx non-contact infrared thermometer, one can help keep other patients from being infected, and avoid spreading a contagious disease.

 

   
 

Case Study:

Portable Spirometry at Any Point of Care

In 2011, 12.7 million U.S. adults (aged 18 and over) were estimated to have COPD. However, close to 24 million U.S. adults have evidence of impaired lung function, indicating an under diagnosis of COPD (Centers for Disease Control)


i2dtx portable spirometry can be performed at any point of care with relative ease. In most cases, it provides an adequate assessment of pulmonary function and may be used to address major issues in clinical management and health screening.

 

   
 

Case Study:

Rapid and Accurate ESI Triage

In 2008 there were 123.8 million visits to U.S. emergency departments (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2008). Of those visits, only 18% of patients were seen within 15 minutes, leaving the majority of patients waiting in the waiting room. Since then an Emergency Severity Index (ESI) has been widely adopted as a triage system.

Rapid and accurate assessment of ESI triage with i2Dtx improves the patient flow management, adequate staffing levels and cost reduction in the Emergency Department.

 

 

   
 

Case Study:

i2Dtx for Long-Term Care

By 2050, the number of individuals using paid long-term care services in any setting (e.g., at home, residential care such as assisted living, or skilled nursing facilities) will likely double from the 13 million using services in 2000, to 27 million people.


i2Dtx enabled end-to-end wireless connectivity at any point of care empowers healthcare providers to optimize patient outcomes and save lives while reducing healthcare costs.

 

 

   
 

Case Study:

Identifying Heart Failure

According to the International Diabetes Federation, there are now an estimated 382 million people worldwide (18 million in US) are living with diabetes, a vast majority in low- and middle-income countries — places where many cases go undiagnosed and untreated.

The reference values for a "normal" random glucose test in an average adult are 79 - 140 mg/dl, between 140 - 200 mg/dl is considered pre-diabetes, and > 200 mg/dl with symptoms  is considered diabetes according to ADA guidelines.

i2Dtx on site blood glucose test is immensely helpful to screen for or manage Diabetes.

 

   
 

Case Study:

Automated Vital Signs Entry and Reduced Errors

Transcription errors, illegible results, late data entry, misidentification of the patient, undocumented readings and missed readings with manual-entry of Vital Signs can lead to faulty data, as well as unnecessary and potentially dangerous interventions.

Automated Vital Signs documentation with i2Dtx can help reduce errors by 75 percent and in a 36 bed unit save almost 120 hours of staff time per month when compared to a manual-entry system.

 

   
 

Case Study:

Digitized Physical Exam Analytics to Reduce Errors and Improve Outcomes

“Eight in 10 misdiagnoses were due, in part, to problems in the patient encounter, such as errors during the physical exam or medical history-taking.”

(JAMA Internal Medicine, March 2013)


The i2Dtx analytics overcome the subjectivity of a physical examination and thus markedly reduce errors with improved diagnosis and outcomes.

 

   
 

Case Study:

Manage Emergencies by Assessing and Connecting with Emergency Ground Personnel During Flight

As many as 2.75 billion passengers fly on commercial airlines each year, which equates to about 44,000 in-flight emergencies annually, and nearly 50 a day in the U.S. alone.


The deployment of i2Dtx connected device platform while in flight can be immensely helpful in managing patients using advice from the ground-based consultants.
