VivoSense® Plays Vital Role in Respiratory Monitoring in Infants

Posted by VivoSense Team on March 5, 2020

Severe respiratory disease is one of the leading causes of infant illness and death worldwide. There is a significant upward trend of clinical infant respiratory studies, including the investigation into respiratory success in ventilated infants, SIDS, and neurological disorders that affect the normal respiratory pattern. In this article, we discuss how noninvasive respiratory monitoring and VivoSense® software helps researchers collect and analyze respiratory data for clinical studies focused on infant and neo-natal breathing patterns.

Physician Biometric Data Analysis Helps Improve Patient Outcomes

Posted by Dudley Tabakin on February 27, 2020

The pace, pressures, work-life balance, and emotional aspects of a physician’s job put them at risk for burnout. A study by the American Medical Association and Mayo Clinic found that burnout rates were particularly increased for specialty practitioners. Drs. Nicholas Slamon and Rob Parker, pediatric ICU physicians at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE, used VivoSense® and real-time biometrics of physician stress to study its effects on the care of pediatric patients.

VivoSense® Used to Explore HRV as a Biomarker of Obesity

Posted by VivoSense Team on February 13, 2020

San Diego State University’s Clinical Psychology research group and the Drexel University WELL Center joined forces using VivoSense® to investigate Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and its link to obesity, binge eating, and loss of control while eating. Specifically, the study examined the association between HRV and binge eating and change in HRV from a resting to a stressed task as a potential marker of emotional regulation capacity in obese individuals.
