Sempulse’s Halo applies in seconds to the back of the ear and wirelessly monitors 100’s of patients’ vital signs, non-invasively and in non-sterile conditions. That’s pulse oximetry (SpO2), heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, and the industry’s first cuffless blood pressure within 2 seconds of application.This data is then securely transmitted to a medic’s tablet and simultaneously to remote physicians to allow them to add their expertise.
Today, medics have to manually take vital signs with their fingers and stethoscopes and then subjectively decide who to help first. Our system automatically retrieves patients’ vital signs, objectively prioritizes them by severity, and then allow medics to actually do what they’re trained to do: care for the wounded.
According to the U.S. Army, during the last 2 major conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan 51.4% of those soldiers who did not come home died of potentially survivable causes. Outpatient surgeries are on pace to double within 3 years. Mass casualty events like the Las Vegas shooting or an Amtrak crash leave first responders unequipped to locate and treat patients in priority order – sometimes people are lost because they weren’t seen in front of others would could have managed to wait. Nursing home populations will continue to increase with the influx of Baby Boomers. Multiple vehicle traffic accidents require patients to wait for multiple ambulances to accommodate the wounded. All of these pointed us at Sempulse to create the Halo, a small, lightweight sensor that affixes to the back of ear, leaving full mobility and sensory awareness, and delivers high efficacy vital signs monitoring within seconds.
