Continuous Hemodynamic Monitoring
A innovative FDA and CE cleared device that continuously and non-invasively measures and reports ICU quality data in real time. As opposed to current continuous hemodynamic monitoring modalities that utilize invasive catheter-based technology, Caretaker uses a simple finger sensor and a patented algorithm to continuously measure and report key physiological parameters. Studies show that Caretaker non-invasive measurements correlate to gold standard invasive catheter measurements.
How is Caretaker Different
Caretaker is focused on making advanced hemodynamic and physiological monitoring more accessible, more efficient, and more cost-effective, improving the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Caretaker reports ICU quality wireless vital signs monitoring via a wearable device that wirelessly transmits patient data from virtually anywhere. Caretaker sets a new standard in mobility, simplicity, and cost, enabling continuous real-time monitoring as patients traverse the full continuum of care, within the hospital, from remote facilities, or from the patient’s own home.
Why we built it
Traditionally, accurate cNIBP monitoring has been limited to invasive catheters or expensive complicated machines used only in critical care settings. CareTaker’s low-cost, small, comfortable form factor, and intuitive design brings “ICU Quality” cNIBP capabilities to virtually any setting. The benefits of gathering blood pressure measurements continuously over a time interval are well documented and significantly better that intermittent “single-point-in-time” blood pressure readings from cumbersome upper arm cuff squeezes, which are susceptible to errors, often yield incorrect results, and can miss underlying hemodynamic problems.
How Caretaker 4 works
Using our FDA Approved finger sensor and Pulse Decomposition Analysis technology, Caretaker non-invasively and continuously measures Beat-by-Beat Blood Pressure within AAMI accuracy standards, enabling clinicians to monitor patient vitals, pressure waveforms, from virtually anywhere. Caretaker integrates low power Bluetooth and functions as a “Wearable Hub”, collecting data from other Bluetooth devices such as Glucometers, Weight Scales, Thermometers, Spirometers, etc. In addition to the CE and FDA Approved cNIBP, Heart Rate, and pulse waveform functions, Caretaker provides healthcare staff with information on a patients changing health conditions. allowing early intervention and rapid response to a patients changing health conditions.
