The cosinuss° C-Med enables physicians, emergency services and hospitals to monitor four of the five vital signs wirelessly with only one in-ear sensor. The recorded data is automatically sent to a (mobile) device or fed into a monitoring system of choice (e.g. the cosinuss° LabSystem) where it is conveniently and continuously monitored and processed.
In addition to the seamless measurement of various vital signs in just one device, in-ear monitoring offers clear advantages:
- The ear canal provides excellent diagnostic blood data when compared to data measured at the finger.
- In contrast to the finger clip, the C-Med also does not impair blood circulation and this makes it possible to monitor blood oxygen saturation without interruption.
- The optical in-ear measurements are well protected from light and movement which improves their precision.
Possible hospital applications include pre-, inter- and postoperative monitoring, pre- and postoperative patient mobilization as well as monitoring in special applications, e.g. chronic diseases, sleep apnea, fertility therapy, remote patient monitoring and research.
In-ear blood oxygen measurements offer a particular advantage for patients for whom traditional finger measurement is not optimal. For example, patients experiencing hypothermia or poor blood circulation to the extremities (e.g. shock).
