Cicer Use Case Scenarios

Intended Use - Vitals monitoring, outside the ICU

  • 1. Post procedure or ICU discharge, during patient recovery
  • 2. After admission of In-patients in general wards and in step down ICU facilities
  • 3. After stabilization in the casualty
  • 4. At Home - post discharge from the hospital
  • 5. Ambulances and intra-departmental transport
Patients on opioids post procedure need continuous vitals monitoring. This increases the likelihood of, for e.g. catching opioid-induced respiratory distress in post-operative patients at an early stage, resulting in fewer adverse patient outcomes, and fewer ICU re-admissions. ten3T's Cicer wearable continuous monitoring device along with centralized monitoring feature enables seamless transition of patients from Intensive Care Units to Wards, including intra-hospital transport.
48% of hospital deaths occur in the unmonitored patient population (Ref # below). A patient's health is typically assessed every 4-6 hours by a visiting nurse in the wards. Drug-drug interactions, co-morbidities, and other unknown risk factors can contribute to rapid deterioration in patient's health. ten3T has developed proprietary algorithms for its wearable continuous monitoring system that compute a modified early warning score based-on five patient vitals, which enables early identification of patient deterioration and therefore prompt early intervention by clinical staff. Multiple patients can be remotely monitored from a centralized location.
Patient monitoring stops when they are discharged from hospital, while they continue to be treated for their condition with medication, either at home or at a post-acute care facility. To ensure continuity in care and to reduce the risk of readmission, the wearable nature of Cicer allows for uninterrupted monitoring of vitals when the patient is mobile and at a remote location. Patients with rhythm anomalies can also be remotely monitored in real-time accelerating early interventions.
