While great advances in medicine have been made in the past century, the overall infrastructure of the healthcare system has not progressed. Patients are still expected to travel to a centralized location for discrete, reactionary-based care where the healthcare provider only has a brief window to assess the patient’s health. Unless the symptoms are overt at the time of examination, the subjective evaluation relies heavily on the self-reporting of symptoms from the patient. This often results in delayed or improper diagnoses. In contrast, we know that physiological signals precede clinical deterioration. We have developed a suite of soft, low-cost, unobtrusive, Band-Aid © like physiological sensors to continuously monitor patients’ cardiovascular and pulmonary functions. We seek to continuously quantify subtle physiological changes to predict – and eventually prevent — the onset of acute clinical events.
