FDA Clears Remote Monitoring Solution for Smartphones

July 30, 2010 – A cardiac patient remote monitoring solution that feeds live information to smart phones was cleared for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The software includes the AirStrip Remote Patient Monitoring solution (RPM), including AirStrip RPM Critical Care and AirStrip RPM Cardiology.

With FDA clearance in place, AirStrip now extends its virtual real time remote patient monitoring technology to a broad array of acute patient clinical settings, which include the intensive care unit, the emergency department, the operating room, the neonatal ICU, and virtually any other care environment.

The AirStrip RPM solution allows clinicians unprecedented remote access to critical patient data in virtual real time. Medical professionals will use their smart phones to see vital signs, critical waveform data and other clinical information, which is sent directly from the hospital and can be accessed from virtually anywhere a cellphone or other wireless connection is available.

The U.S. healthcare system is facing a core dilemma - an increasing discrepancy between the growing number of patients that need to be monitored and the decreasing number of doctors, nurses and other providers that are available to monitor them. This discrepancy is driving an urgent focus on telemedicine and solutions that can help medical professionals improve safety and overall care for patients when anytime, anywhere access to critical data is needed.

The AirStrip RPM solution addresses this concern directly by delivering easy-to-use, standards-based, secure and intuitive mobile applications. The power of the AirStrip technology, coupled with AirStrip's partners, will allow AirStrip to meet market demand on a global scale.

Initially developed for the Apple iPhone operating system, the AirStrip RPM Critical Care and Cardiology solutions will now be available to medical professionals who use the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, iPod Touch, and the iPad. Development of the expanded AirStrip RPM solutions for other smart phone brands is being pursued.

AirStrip Technologies released its first remote patient monitoring solution, AirStrip OB, in 2006. It remains the only solution of its kind available and is now installed in labor and delivery units in more than 200 U.S. hospitals.

Hospitals purchase the AirStrip system, which works in tandem with the hospital's existing patient monitoring and clinical information systems. Doctors can then install the application on their smartphone.

Use of traditional Holter monitor leads can be an issue for patient compliance and comfort. The newer generation ambulatory cardiac monitors use an adhesive patch that sticks directly on the patient's chest and allows them to shower and go about daily activities without a belt mounted monitor or leads getting in the way. This is especially important for longer term monitoring of seven days or longer.
