Como, September 30-th, 2019. Ontonix, SAIC and the Military Medicine Institute in Warsaw have developed an Android-based App for real-time monitoring or patients in Intensive Care. The App processes streaming data originating in monitoring equipment in Intensive Care Units and delivers early-warnings of imminent crises or instabilities. Such early warnings are based on sudden variations of patient complexity and, generally, precede crises or instabilities.
“While most conventional patient monitoring systems analyze vital signs on a one-by-one basis, our tool identifies and takes into account all possible channel interactions, combining them into one single systemic indicator of the patient’s state and dynamics”, said Dr. J. Marczyk, the founder of Ontonix. “We are grateful to our partners, the Warsaw-based Military Medicine Institute and with SAIC, for their collaboration in helping us deploy such an innovative and advanced tool” he added.
“Because of the immense complexity of the human body, and due to the limitations of conventional mathematics, medicine lacks a systems perspective. Today, thanks to our Quantitative Complexity Science and Technology, it is possible to see a patient as a system of interacting systems and to provide real-time measures of his complexity and stability. This new approach provides unprecedented insight into the dynamics of a patient and enables us to issue early-warnings in an ICU” he concluded.
