Study Says ivWatch Detects IV Infiltrations and Extravasations Before Clinicians

The ivWatch is a continuous monitoring system developed by ivWatch LLC. Along with the monitoring, the device is also equipped with early detection capabilities and is used to detect IV infiltrations and extravasations.

The device was deployed at the Wilhemina Children’s Hospital in the Netherlands, where it was used in a 24-bed neonatal care unit. Read more at Medical Device & Technology.
