The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital monitors ICU room temperature and carbon monoxide concentrations in near real time

The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital have partnered with Drayson Technologies to pilot the company's wireless, temperature and carbon monoxide sensors for monitoring of its adult and neonatal ICUs. The sensors provide near real time information on a room's temperature and carbon monoxide concentrations and their implementation is part of the hospital's project to increase its ICU capacity every year and prove state-of-the-art facilities.

Project Overview

"CW+, the charity for Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, has announced a new partnership with Drayson Technologies to launch the first pilot of wireless environmental sensors in the intensive care units at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

The announcement was made on Wednesday [29th September 2017] on the Digital NHS stage at the Healthcare Efficiency through Technology show at Olympia London, where CW+ presented seven of their digital health innovative projects currently being implemented at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

This latest project, coordinated by Dr. Lawrence Petalidis, Head of Innovation and Impact at CW+, in partnership with Drayson Technologies, will pilot Drayson’s wireless, temperature and carbon monoxide sensors in both the adult and neonatal intensive care units. These sensors will allow for near real-time monitoring of room temperature and carbon monoxide concentrations, a metric of air quality."

Technology

"We provide actionable information and make discoveries that improve health and reduce costs. We do this by creating IoT networks that collect data on health and the environment to provide actionable information for physicians, patients and individuals. We then analyse large data sets collected by these IoT networks using machine learning and from this make new discoveries and generate IP of value to our customers." (LinkedIn)

Function

Background

"The pilot forms part of CW+’s Critical Care Campaign to raise £10 million to significantly expand and redevelop both the adult and neonatal intensive care units at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. This campaign will enable the hospital to treat 700 more critically ill adults and babies every year in state-of-the-art facilities with a leading patient-centered design, providing the best environment, facilities and technologies for patients and their families.

Drayson Technologies’ environmental sensors will feature throughout these new units enabling staff to monitor the environment. The pilot forms the first part of CW+’s plans to create a ‘sensor rich environment’ that is anticipated to have a significant impact on critically ill patients’ wellbeing and their recovery."
