PeriGen, global leader in providing fetalmonitoring systems with real-time clinical decision support, announced the recent approval of a patent by the European Patent Office. The patent covers specialized techniques to display patient data to aid in important trend recognition and the identification of hazardous deviations from normal health conditions. This reduces information overload prevalent in modern day electronic medical records.

In addition to the standard fetal heart rate and uterine contraction data, the new displays show multiple time-aligned views of other key data elements such as maternal vital signs, medications administered, or analyses such as heart rate categorization or variability. Obstetrical clinicians have the option to display the specific data elements that are important to each patient and the mother’s unique circumstances, as well as receive alerts when values exceed safety limits.

"This patent's real-time targeted data display tool is valuable to physicians and nurses who work in high-risk labor and delivery units where having immediate access to the right knowledge to make informed decisions can prevent tragic consequences," said Matthew Sappern, PeriGen's CEO. "Not only must clinicians consider two patients, mother and baby, they often track several different aspects of their health at the same time. This new display technique helps them to see the key information they want, quickly and efficiently."

PeriGen offers unique fetal surveillance products that provide dynamic visual cues to direct clinicians to the most essential patient information displayed on the screen.PeriGen Visual Cueing ™ provides an instant view of the mother’s and baby’s current status and trends over time to avoid errors, increasing safety and reducing risk for clinicians and hospitals.
