A new wearable patient monitor utilizes a simple finger sensor to remotely measure blood pressure and multiple vital signs, enabling touchless and clinically distanced monitoring of COVID-19 patients.

The Caretaker wireless patient monitor from Caretaker Medical (Charlottesville, VA, USA) can help clinicians safely monitor quarantine patients without ever entering the room, augment overburdened clinical resources, reduce the use of PPE, and enable safe "clinically distanced" monitoring. The wearable Caretaker patient monitor enables uninterrupted wire-free and electrode-free real-time vital signs monitoring throughout the full continuum of care using a low pressure finger sensor and patented pulse decomposition analysis technology non-invasively measures continuous beat-by-beat blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate and other parameters for remote display on the Caretaker tablet app and other remote data displays.

The Caretaker CNIBP technology delivers "ICU Quality" continuous measurements without intrusive arterial catheters or cumbersome wires, giving clinicians the ability to recognize deteriorating hemodynamic trends earlier with more lead time for intervention while providing a much more comprehensive view of a patient's vital signs status. Hospitals and clinics are successfully using Caretaker to wirelessly monitor quarantined COVID-19 patients and also monitor patients across a wide range of clinical settings, including surgery, ICU, ER, EMS/ambulance, dialysis, infusion, labor & delivery, clinical trials, and remote patient monitoring.
