Reducing preventable maternal deaths through increased situational awareness.
The US maternal mortality rate has increased by 51%, while the global rate has declined by 32% over the same period.1 59% of these pregnancy-related maternal deaths were preventable.2
In addition, another 60,000 suffer complications that are near-fatal.3 AlertWatch:OB is the first monitoring and early warning solution designed to help reduce these severe maternal complications and deaths. It integrates and displays near-real-time device and historical data elements, which can be accessed online on any computer, smartphone or tablet, and provides early warning alerts recommended by the Joint Commission to make labor and post-delivery care safer.4 It also automatically calculates the ACOG hemorrhage score for each patient. AlertWatch:OB offers an extra set of eyes in high-pressure L&D units, and helps staff work together to decrease these all-too-common outcomes.
