Patient safety and ensuring optimal care for recovering patients are priorities for every hospital. A way to do this is to keep patients moving and to continuously monitor key vital signs, including respiratory rate. While this sounds easy, finding a simple and reliable way to support monitoring patients in the general ward setting has been a challenge.

In this session, Ben Edwards from GE Healthcare will explore this challenge and what is happening to meet this challenge.
