Enhancing Patient Care throughout Your Organization

The ivWatch Patient Monitoring System is a valuable tool for teams across multiple departments. Through continuous IV monitoring, our system supports the clinician and helps to improve patient outcomes related to vascular therapy. ivWatch technology is an unwavering extra set of eyes, continuously looking out for clinicians, patients, and their families when other points of care take priority.

Pediatrics
  • Reduces harm – Even small amounts of fluid can have long-lasting, life-long consequences in pediatric patients. The ivWatch Patient Monitoring System helps improve safety and reduce harm to your most fragile patients.
  • Acts as an extra set of eyes – When you can’t be in the room, and the parent doesn’t know what to look for, ivWatch is there, ready to catch the early signs of infiltration, often before they’re noticeable to the human eye.
  • Enhances early detection – Since pediatric dosing rates are often slow, detecting an infiltration can take longer with regular IV checks. With a high monitoring device sensitivity, ivWatch can detect infiltrations in as little as 0.2 mL of IV fluid, with an average detection volume between 2 and 3 mL.1,2 Clinicians can respond earlier and take effective action as needed.
  • Improves safety and parent satisfaction – Protecting their child is of paramount importance to every parent. ivWatch enhances confidence in care and provides continuous observation to ensure treatment and safety during a patient’s stay.
ICU
  • Provides monitoring assurance – In the high-pressure ICU environment, the ivWatch Patient Monitoring System helps clinicians confirm that patients are receiving the life-saving medications they need when they need them most.
  • Reduces complications – ivWatch helps to prevent additional long-lasting complications caused by infiltrations and extravasations in already highly susceptible patients.
  • Optimizes workflow and focus – Continuous IV monitoring allows you to optimize your time and focus on more pressing issues.
  • Enhances protection – By using technology to monitor IV sites, ivWatch allows you to save PPE and protect against exposure for your team.
Medical/Surgical
  • Minimizes effects of dosing errors – The ivWatch Patient Monitoring System keeps an eye on your patient even when you aren’t in the room, catching infiltrations and extravasations early to help reduce drug dosing errors.
  • Enhances prioritization of workflow – With high patient loads and increasing demands on your teams’ time, ivWatch provides real-time notification of infiltration/extravasation events with clinically-proven accuracy so that you can focus on high priority needs.
  • Accounts for patient motion – ivWatch technology accounts for motion to ensure continuous, accurate detection.3
  • Watches the line 24/7 – Even when IV checks are performed hourly, infiltrations and extravasations can and do occur. ivWatch offers the opportunity for reduced liability claims against both teams and the facilities they operate in by providing continuous monitoring of the IV site.
OR/Anesthesia
  • Overcomes visualization problems – the ivWatch Patient Monitoring System is able to keep an eye on draped or tucked IV sites in high-activity environments, when it’s vital to keep patients asleep and when OR throughput time is critical.
  • Signals OR staff immediately – In a high-pressure, high-action OR, ivWatch provides instant notification of your patient’s IV status with both audible and visual alerts.
  • Improves OR scheduling – ivWatch helps to reduce IV related complications and delays, which help keep surgeries on time and improve room turnover.
  • Ensures proper dosing – Continuous monitoring helps clinicians ensure visibly clear drugs are being delivered as intended into the vein and not into the tissue.
Oncology/Infusion Centers
  • Reduces patient harm from infiltrated vesicant drugs – the ivWatch Patient Monitoring System keeps an eye on your patients with fragile veins and multiple venipunctures, who may be more likely to suffer an infiltration or extravasation when vesicants must be delivered peripherally.
  • Catches problems early – The ivWatch Patient Monitoring System is able to detect infiltration and extravasation events prior to what’s possible with the human eye, so that the patient isn’t needed to bring attention to the issue.
  • Provides peace of mind – With ivWatch, you can rest assured that your patient’s peripheral IV is delivering the necessary medications without the need to place a PICC.
  • Enhances time management – With a small window to get the necessary drugs delivered, ivWatch helps to ensure efficient time management.
