VitalTag by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is a chest-worn sticker that detects, monitors and transmits blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate and other vital signs, eliminating the need for multiple medical devices.
It is meant for emergency responders to quickly assess a person’s state.
Additional sensors are worn on the finger, and in the ear.
Data is displayed in an app, allowing responders to see patients’ location and receive alerts when status changes or they are moved. Multiple patients can be monitored simultaneously.
