Tele-TOKS Implementation of an early warning system on a cardiology ward utilizing a wrist-worn medical device, with comparison to conventional measurements taken by nurses
Vital sign changes often precede cardiac arrest, unexpected death, or ICU admission. If observed and treated, it could prevent the patient's condition from deteriorating. Systematically detecting abnormal vital signs can predict which patients are at risk of death and improve outcomes through timely interventions. TOKS is a Danish algorithm derived from the UK's National Early Warning Score (NEWS). TOKS 2.1 was inspired by New Zealand's Wellington Early Warning Score, which measures vital parameters and calculates an overall score. Cardiowatch 287-1 is a wrist-worn, wireless remote monitoring device for residential and healthcare environments and is CE-certified and EU-MDR-compliant. The device continuously monitors respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, blood pressure, pulse rate, and core temperature from the wrist, as required for automated TOKS 2.1 measurements.
Number of Participants
The study will include at least 100 patients over the age of 18 who are referred to our hospital's cardiology ward.
