Technology helps patients recover after intensive care

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, March 3, 2008

But new technology may tell nurses which patients are vulnerable to reversals much earlier than in the past. The system, made by Indiana-based OBS Medical, automatically monitors vital signs and issues an alert when a patient's heart rate or breathing starts to get out of control.
