  • Publication number: 20120253142
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are described including a motion sensor (30) that senses motion of a subject and generates a motion signal in response thereto. An oximetry sensor (86) measures oxygen saturation of the subject and generates an oximetry signal in response thereto. A control unit (14) analyzes the sensed motion and the sensed oximetry signal, and filters out false alerts relating to a condition of the subject generated by the oximetry signal, based on correlation between the oximetry signal and an aspect of the motion signal. Other embodiments are also described.

  • Publication number: 20120132211
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are provided for use during endotracheal intubation of a subject, including an output unit, and at least one sensor configured to sense motion of the subject, and generate a signal responsively thereto. A control unit is configured to detect an aspect of the intubation by analyzing a component of the signal having a frequency of less than 20 Hz, and drive the output unit to generate an output indicative of the aspect of the intubation. Other applications are also described.

  • Publication number: 20110282216
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are described including a mechanical sensor configured to detect a physiological signal of a subject. A control unit receives the signal over a time duration of at least two hours at a given period of a first baseline day, and determines a baseline physiological parameter of the subject in response thereto. The control unit receives the signal over a time duration of at least two hours at a given period of a second day, the period on the second day overlapping with the period over which the signal is detected on the first baseline day. The control unit determines a physiological parameter of the subject based upon the detected signal on the second day, and compares the parameter to the subject's baseline physiological parameter. The control unit generates an alert in response to the comparison. Other applications are also described.

  • Publication number: 20070118054
    Abstract: Methods and systems for monitoring vital signs for the prediction and treatment of physiological ailments are provided. The methods and systems may be applied to the monitoring of a broad range of physiological ailments or “episodes,” including, but not limited to, asthma, hypoglycemia, coughing, edema, sleep apnea, labor, and REM sleep stages, among others. The methods employ sensors, for example, non-contact sensors, adapted to detect vital signs, such as heart rate or respiration rate, to produce signals that can be analyzed for trends, for deviations, or for comparison to prior conditions or criteria. The sensors may be positioned whereby the subject need not be viewed by the health care provider. Some methods and systems employ the use of “scores” based upon the combination of sensed vital signs or based upon a comparison of the vital signs to criteria.
