Wireless assessment of respiratory and circulatory distress in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with special emphasis on physiological abnormalities, validation and patient outcomes in acute exacerbation.

Clinical impact of vital sign abnormalities in patients admitted with acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: an observational study using continuous wireless monitoring

Internal and Emergency Medicine

Early detection of abnormal vital signs is critical for timely management of acute hospitalised patients and continuous monitoring
may improve this. We aimed to assess the association between preceding vital sign abnormalities and serious adverse
events (SAE) in patients hospitalised with acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD).
