Fever complicates up to 70% of all intensive care unit admissions and increases mortality rate. Pediatric patients are at greater risk to complications and more prone to fever spikes. Today, nurses administer temperature checks every couple of hours to make sure a patient is not running a fever, but a child's fever may rise dangerously high in the interim.
Nurses and doctors need a way to measure temperature in real time and receive automatic alerts when a child has a fever.
With our Apple Watch app, a nurse can easily track a patient’s temperature, see critical patient information, and quickly contact a patient’s doctor.
