Acute patients require immediate intervention of physicians, that are not always able to be present at the point of care. This can be detrimental to the patient's outcome. A new system, VIGIATRIXTM (VXTM), accommodates remote decision support in real time. It facilitates the rapid status assessment mandatory to avoid further deterioration of patient's condition. VX continuously analyzes the status of all vital signs and presents a single status indicator--The Vital Function Status (VFS). The VFS focuses the attention of the immediate care provider and the remote physician to vital signs changes and their correlation to causative events or actions. VX can be used in telemedicine to improve patient outcome.
