Dozee: Technology comes in handy to help Vijayawada govt hospital convert normal bed into ICU

Vijayawada: Andhra Pradesh Government General Hospital, Vijayawada, has come up with a contactless remote vital parameter monitoring (RPM) device which can convert any normal bed into a step-down ICU, reducing work stress for the staff during emergencies.

'Dozee'- India's first contactless RPM device, developed by Bangalore-based start-up Turtle Shell Technologies Private Limited, has been installed at GGH, Vijayawada, in Andhra Pradesh. Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, and Sikkim are already making using this system. This is a new project under the Aarogya Daksh scheme, a joint initiative between the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms (C-CAMP) and SBI Foundation.

"The device with 12 vital parameters (including heart rate, blood pressure) read-out tracked through proprietary AI technology alerts the medical staff according to individual patient needs to have an early advantage during emergencies. It is placed under the patient's bed and can measure vitals into readable and accessible reports, which can be monitored through an app," Project Manager of C-CAMP Chandrakant Redican told NewsMeter,

A hi-tech security system of Dozee ensures the confidentiality of your medical records and measured reports. Currently, GGH, Vijayawada, is deployed with 90 devices. Depending on the requirement, the hospital is ready to add more devices.

A help for govt hospitals:

Thousands of patients visit government hospitals every day. However, the shortage of beds force them to return. There are cases when patients are kept in the corridors of the hospital premises. Dozee can be kept under any bed and help save thousands of nursing hours and resource management during pandemic situations.

"For a primary government hospital like GGH, Vijayawada, this device is a great help and can monitor 150-200 patients at a time from a single dashboard Stress levels, and workload of the nurse staff can be reduced to a lot", said Chandrakant.

While the Dozee has been deployed at only one government hospital in the state, C-CAMP officials said they would install the device in hospitals.
