Ms Sandy Rolfe (Respiratory Nurse Specialist, NHS Tayside) recently wrote for the British Journal of Nursing about ‘The importance of respiratory rate monitoring.’ This is the process undertaken by clinical staff of manually counting a patients’ breaths for one minute and recording that figure in the patients’ notes, along with their other vital signs. Rolfe highlights the reasons why respiratory monitoring is so important, how it can sometimes fall foul of inaccuracy and how it could be improved.

THE BREATHING OF 40 COVID-19 PATIENTS IN BEAUMONT HOSPITAL IN DUBLIN IS BEING CONTINUOUSLY, REMOTELY MONITORED WITH RESPIRASENSE.
Now more than ever, healthcare providers around the world are being called upon to help bring better outcomes to every patient. Since 2011, PMD Solutions have been developing a solution: RespiraSense – a Continuous Respiratory Rate Monitor which can remotely monitor the breathing of multiple patients, simultaneously. RespiraSense has an error rate of just plus or minus one breath and is also the first device that can monitor breathing remotely.
One of the main advantages when interacting with patients with Coronavirus for healthcare providers using RespiraSense is that they don’t have to keep donning Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to monitor the breathing of COVID-19 patients.
