WARD 24/7 > About

What is WARD?

Wireless Assessment of Respiratory and circulatory Distress (WARD) is an innovative clinical support system founded in 2016. The WARD project integrates input from patient monitoring devices with intelligent algorithms to yield high-quality patient observations with real-time alarms triggered by patient vital sign deterioration.

Intended for use in several patient settings where the advantages and benefits of continuous monitoring may be fundamental, the WARD system has been used in monitoring postoperative high-risk patients, in patients hospitalized with COPD and in patients admitted with COVID-19 infection. 

 

WARD allows doctors and nurses to follow patients’ acute medical disease progression or postoperative course. Real-time alarms will immediately alert relevant health care staff and allow initiation of treatment at a much earlier stage. Our well-designed and intuitive user interface offers health care professionals a valuable tool for overviewing current and historical vital signs. 

 

Daily routines of manual patient monitoring can be fundamentally changed with 24/7 observation of peripheral oxygen saturation, heart rate, respiration rate, blood pressure etc. with alarms of important deviations. This allows more efficient use of resources and lets medical staff give attention to the patients with urgent needs while at the same time keeping an eye on the remaining patients.
