04. Patient Information of VS-SAFETY

Patient physiological changes have always been a focal point for healthcare professionals during patient care. With VS-SAFETY’s Patient Information, integration of VSH101, VSG101, and VSG102 enables healthcare professionals to perform long-term and real-time physiological monitoring. After statistical analysis, this information is intuitively presented to healthcare professionals through numerical data and charts. It provides healthcare professionals with clearer and more objective indicators for patient care and diagnosis.

VS-SAFETY provides comprehensive patient information, as shown in the diagram below. The entire patient information includes 11 main sections:

  1. Patient Basic Information: It includes the patient’s name, gender, height, weight, date of birth, identification number, contact information, and other basic details.

  2. Physiological Device Information: This section contains information about the device, such as signal strength, device ID, gateway ID, online status of the device, device temperature, and connection status. These details help confirm whether the physiological monitoring device is functioning properly.

  3. Cardiac System Signals: This part reports real-time or last recorded cardiac-related information, including current heart rate, average heart rate, and RR interval. It also provides average times for PR, QRS, and QT characteristics.

  4. Heart Rate Variability (HRV): Patient information also includes long-term heart rate variability data, which includes time-domain and frequency-domain indicators. Time-domain indicators include SDNN, RMSSD, and NN50, while frequency-domain indicators include LF / HF, LF / TP, HF / TP, and numerical values for LF, HF, and TP.

  5. Activity Information: VS-SAFETY utilizes VSH101 single-lead ECG device developed by VitalSigns Technology, which incorporates a high-precision G-Sensor. This section provides activity power and real-time values of the X, Y, Z axes’ gravitational forces (X-NOW, Y-NOW, Z-NOW), as well as the maximum gravity values within a 5-minute interval (x-max, y-max, z-max). Users can utilize these G-values to filter out non-cardiac muscle electrical signals or for patient activity and posture assessments.
  6. Statistical Data: The statistical data allows users to quickly view the main 14 long-term physiological information of the patient. These include heart rate, body temperature, G-Sensor activity level, individual G-Sensor axis values, average RR interval time, SDNN, RMSSD, LF/HF, LF/TP, HF/TP, etc. Below, there are settings to specify the start and end dates, as well as hours, for the intended observation period.
  7. Heart Rate Chart: The heart rate chart is a key item for healthcare professionals to review. By observing the patient’s heart rate fluctuations, we can diagnose or predict the patient’s medical condition. You can modify the chart’s date, time, or set the maximum and minimum values (y-max, ymin) to select the desired interval.
  8. Temperature Monitoring Chart: VS-SAFETY utilizes the VSH101 single-lead ECG device developed by VitalSigns Technology. Unlike conventional ECG devices, VSH101 is equipped with a unique temperature probe that allows simultaneous monitoring of body surface temperature during ECG measurements. As a result, through long-term monitoring, we can obtain a temperature chart showing John’s body surface temperature over time. You can also adjust the chart’s date, time, or set the maximum and minimum values to obtain the temperature range you need.
  9. Activity Chart: VS-SAFETY utilizes the VSH101 single-lead ECG device, which is equipped with a highly accurate G-Sensor. You can use VSH101 to record the patient’s activity behavior over an extended period. This data can serve as an auxiliary for artifacts removal in your AI algorithms and also as a fundamental element for calculating patient movements and postures, such as sleeping, standing, or turning. By adjusting the settings for date, time, maximum, and minimum values below the chart, you can obtain the desired range of activity variations.
  10. LF/HF Chart: VS-SAFETY also provides the LF/HF index in Heart Rate Variability (HRV). Using the built-in HRV algorithm of VSH101, VS-SAFETY offers healthcare professionals long-term variations in HRV. Many AI medical centers use this index as a key indicator of patient’s autonomic nervous system changes to predict blood glucose, medication, and post-operative care status. VSH101 provides raw ECG data, allowing you to perform calculations or directly use our charts. You can also obtain specific LF/HF values for a particular time by adjusting the date and time below the chart.
  11. SDNN and Other Indicator Charts: The last chart allows you to choose different indicators, with the default being SDNN in the time domain of Heart Rate Variability (HRV). SDNN can serve as a primary indicator of autonomic nervous system response, complementing LF/HF. Additionally, you can click on RR average, NN50, and RMSSD below to explore other references for autonomic responses. Furthermore, we provide local barometric pressure values, which can be used as an altimeter or as an indicator for athletes during training. Moreover, individual charts for G-Sensor x, y, z axes are available to validate patient movements. Lastly, we offer QT, QRS, and PR interval times, which can help in diagnosing certain cardiac or autonomic disorders. You can find the desired indicators or chart types by adjusting the date and time below.

Below are the graphical representations of patient information we have generated for patient John. You can refer to the descriptions above to obtain the information you need.
