Taking 10 resting blood pressure (BP) readings daily for 2 days provides a reliable, stable representation of patients’ resting systolic (S)BP and diastolic (D)BP, according to a study. This approach shows that the current home BP monitoring protocol of twice-daily readings for 4–7 days may be trimmed down to just 48 hours.

A smartwatch photoplethysmography coupled with a mobile application using a machine learning algorithm can passively and accurately detect atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients undergoing cardioversion, albeit with less accuracy in ambulatory individuals with self-reported AF, a proof-of-concept study shows.

Impaired endothelial-dependent microvascular reactivity appears to be predictive of albuminuria progression in Asian patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) who have normal urine albumin levels at baseline, but not in those with microalbuminuria, a prospective longitudinal cohort study suggests.

Automated EWS systems: Facilitating rigorous monitoring of patient vital signs

29 Mar 2018
Overcrowding of hospital wards, particularly in the general and emergency department, is becoming increasingly commonplace, which makes it difficult for healthcareproviders (HCPs) to provide timely and quality healthcare to all patients. The Early Warning Score (EWS) is a physiological track-and-trigger scoring system which facilitates early intervention. This article discusses how EWS can improve patient outcomes, focusing on the benefits of automated EWS systems.
