App saves on nurse vis­its

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

Kid­ney pa­tients across western Syd­ney can now use an Aus­tralian-first smart­phone app which sends their vi­tal signs to nurses while they are un­der­go­ing dial­y­sis from home. The tech­nol­ogy saves nurses per­form­ing home vis­its, en­abling them to in­crease pa­tient num­bers by 270 per cent in just five months. Nurses can log in and check on a pa­tient’s weight, blood pres­sure, any pos­si­ble de­hy­dra­tion as well as their other vi­tal signs.
