“Ten of the twelve sensors purchased thanks to the Mediwarn project are used within the Infectious Diseases Operational Unit of San Marco Hospital in Catania where infected and symptomatic patients for Covid viral disease are isolated in negative pressure rooms and therefore with limited access by the nursing staff” explains Dr. Salvatore Nicosia, director of UOC Anesthesia and Resuscitation II of the “Policlinico” hospital University of Catania.
The European project “Mediwarn”, funded by the INTERREG V-A Italy Malta 2014-2020 Cross-border Cooperation Program, proposes a technologically advanced cutting edge system capable of providing high standards of care to patients admitted to hospital wards.
The sensors developed in the MEDIWARN project carry out constant monitoring of vital parameters (heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and temperature) and are able to predict any changes in the health of patients. They are essential and vital support tools for health professionals involved and dedicated to the management of the COVID19 emergency.
