High HR Notification leads to Telemedicine Call and
Transfer to Hospital for TX of Suspected SVT for Long-Term Care Resident

Patient: Male long term care resident

Indication: High HR Alerts of 200-202 BPM

Assessment: Nursing staff called Telehealth Solutions MD immediately and they had a visual encounter with the resident. Resident was not symptomatic, but Telehealth was very concerned about SVT and felt resident may need a cardioversion.

Response: Telehealth MD felt the patient needed to be in a fully monitored setting, resident was transferred to the hospital for further evaluation.

Quote: If not for EarlySense, we might have had a “ CODE BLUE” in our building. We captured a life threatening condition in time with the help of our new technologies (Early Sense and Telehealth). CHC is very grateful for providing these tools to keep our resident safe.
