Max Healthcare to introduce 24×7 ward monitoring system

New Delhi, Feb 28: To bring Intensive Care Unit (ICU)-standard monitoring across general wards, Max Healthcare on Wednesday announced a partnership with US-based medical technology company Vios Medical to launch a continuous vital monitoring system built on a medical-grade Internet of Things (IoT) framework.

The technology provides continuous monitoring of vital signs such as oxygen saturation, heart rate, respiratory rate, electrocardiogram (ECG) and blood pressure in general wards, thereby enabling early detection and critical care facility even outside an ICU set-up.

The VIOS ward monitoring system comprises two connected sensors — chest and finger — which communicate wirelessly (via Bluetooth) with a bed-side tablet that maps all vital trends.

These, along with alarms (in case of adverse episodes/ change in trends), can be remotely viewed by nursing staff and clinicians at nursing stations and smartphones via web links.

This ensures that hospital staff can continuously monitor even the patients who are in rooms and ensure better care, Max Healthcare said in a statement.

“The psychosis/anxiety felt by patients under long term critical care has a strong impact on their recovery. With this technology solution, patients can experience 24×7 critical monitoring, even outside an ICU environment, helping them recover in the comfortable presence of loved ones,” said Sandeep Budhiraja, Clinical Director at Max Healthcare.

The technology also aids clinicians in making more effective treatment plans by providing vital trends and patterns, the statement added.

A successful pilot of the system, covering several specialties such as Cardiology, Pulmonology, Medicine and Neurology was conducted at Max Healthcare, Dehradun.

The system, which has the potential to reduce up to 30 per cent critical care costs as compared to ICU charges, will be launched soon across all network hospitals under Max Healthcare, the statement added.

Doctors Protest for Salary

New Delhi: Patients of North Corporation-run hospitals faced hardship as the senior doctors there went on an indefinite strike on Tuesday, a day after they had gone on casual leave en masse over their pending salaries.

Maruti Sinha, general secretary of the Municipal Corporation Doctors’ Association (MCDA) said, “Our demands, which include release of pending salaries for the last three months, have not been met, so we are now on an indefinite strike”.

MCDA, an association of senior permanent doctors of the civic hospitals, was established in 1974, and has about 1200 members. It also includes doctors from hospitals run by other two municipal corporations.

“We have about 700 doctors from the North Corporation hospital who are part of MCDA. We all went on mass casual leave in protest. And, even though our conscience doesn’t allow, our doctors did not attend to patients even in emergency wards,” Sinha said on Monday.

Patients at Hindu Rao Hospital and other North Delhi Municipal Corporation-run hospitals faced inconvenience as doctors struck work to press for their demands. Authorities may have taken services of contractual doctors, she said.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday in the national capital said that India and the US need to jointly confront China’s threats to security in the Indian subcontinent and the Indo-Pacific.

Speaking at the third India-US 2+2 ministerial dialogue in New Delhi, amidst the ongoing face-off between Indian and Chinese troops along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh, Pompeo discussed several issues from “cooperating on defeating the pandemic that originated in Wuhan, to confronting the Chinese Communist Party’s threats to security and freedom, to promoting peace and stability throughout the region”.

As per an official statement of the US government, Indian Minister of External Affairs S. Jaishankar at the meeting raised the issue of security threat India is facing from China. “In the area of defence we are challenged by reckless aggression on our northern borders,” he said at the bilateral dialogue.

The meeting assumes significance because the US secretaries of the Trump administration travelled to New Delhi amidst Coronavirus pandemic even as an intense ongoing campaigning for the Presidential elections due on November 3 was underway in the US.

“Our friendship and commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific was clearly, clearly highly on display when we were in Tokyo this past week and a half for the Quad meeting that Minister Jaishankar and I had with our Australian and Japanese friends earlier this month,” Pompeo told his counterpart.

The US secretary of state said, “Today is real opportunity for two great democracies like ours to grow closer, as I said on my trip to India last year when I called for a new age of ambition in our relationship. I think we’ve delivered on that over this past year. There is much more work to do for sure.”

Together, India and the US are building a better future for “our people based on our shared set of values and our cultures, our defence ties, our scientific collaboration, and mutual prosperity. I thank you for your leadership to each of you to build what ought to be a defining partnership of democracies in the 21st century,” he added.

Jaishankar, at the 2+2 Dialogue said that as the global economy has taken a massive hit due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Indian government has to quickly make up for the losses as economic downturn will have both domestic and external consequences.

According to the US Department of State statement, Secretary of Defence Mark T. Esper, at the meeting with his counterpart Defence Minister Rajnath Singh pointed out that Tuesday marked the 15th anniversary of the first US-India Defence framework.

“We have strengthened our defence and security partnership considerably since then, especially over the past year, during which we advanced our regional security, military-to-military, and information-sharing cooperation. Our focus now must be on institutionalizing and regularizing our cooperation to meet the challenges of the day and uphold the principles of a free and open Indo-Pacific well into the future,” he said.

The two sides discussed key opportunities to expand their efforts on “regional security concerns” and to advance their “defence priorities”, to include increasing information sharing and mutual logistics operations between their militaries.

Jaishankar in his remarks said that at a time when it is particularly important to uphold a rules-based international order, the ability of India and the US to work closely in defence and foreign policy has a larger resonance. “Together we can make a real difference when it comes to regional and global challenges, whether it is in respecting territorial integrity, promoting maritime domain awareness, counterterrorism, or creating prosperity,” he added.
