Simplify Patient Monitoring in Acute Care

Provide additional, autonomous vital signs monitoring where it’s needed — without overburdening your clinicians.

Autonomous, Continuous Vital Signs Monitoring for Acute Care

The Right Monitoring in the Right Place at the Right Time


Today’s hospitals face challenges from every direction. From higher-acuity patients to staffing shortages, it can be difficult to provide quality patient care that’s also cost effective. Explore why hospitals are looking beyond traditional vital signs monitoring to add additional layers of support, autonomously — no patient compliance or clinical action required.

Earlier Detection for Faster Interventions

Deterioration can be hard to identify in med-surg units. With high patient loads, it can be difficult for nurses to detect subtle changes and monitor vital signs frequently. Autonomous, radar-based monitoring can give your busy care teams an additional layer of oversight to help detect the earliest signs of deterioration, even when they aren’t in the room.

70-80% Of Patients Have Elevated or Depressed Vital Scores Six Hours Before an Event1

Respiratory rate is the leading indicator of patient deterioration.2 Yet it remains the least often recorded vital sign3 — and when assessed manually, it is prone to significant error.4 With autonomous, contact-free monitoring, you can count on accurate heart and respiratory rate data to help you better predict deterioration.

Help Your Clinicians Focus on What’s Vital

Staffing shortages topped ECRI’s list of Top Ten Patient Safety Concerns in 2022.5 In the face of widespread nursing burnout and critical staffing shortages, many hospitals are looking to their technology investments to reduce the burden on clinicians and help them focus on their true passion: patient care. Autonomous, contact-free, continuous monitoring can provide support and context to:

  • Get timely, accurate heart and respiratory rate data without time-consuming manual assessments
  • Reduce alarm fatigue by learning patients’ normal vital signs levels, and only alerting care teams to potentially significant deviations
  • Provide additional monitoring for at-risk patients — without additional rounding
  • Optimize staffing levels based on the greatest needs
More Data in Less Time

Manual respiration assessments can be time-consuming — and nurses report perceived lack of time as a top reason this vital sign is often omitted from patient records.6 Automated, autonomous monitoring can take this task off nurses’ plates so they can devote their attention elsewhere.

Get More From Your Bedside Technology

When you know more, you can do more. What if you could get more patient data — like heart and respiratory rate — from your existing bedside equipment? With Xandar Kardian radar sensing integrated into your smart beds, telesitter solution or other equipment, you can:

  • Add clinical value without adding hardware
  • Maximize your existing bedside investments
  • Provide additional vital signs monitoring — when and where it’s needed
