Wuxi People’s Hospital in China investigates the use of wireless temperature monitoring in the ICU

护理学杂志 (Journal of Nursing Science), article in Chinese (summary), January 2012:

Researchers from Wuxi People’s Hospital in Wuxi, China, investigated the use of the Cadi SmartSense wireless temperature monitoring system on 180 patients in the hospital’s ICU and found that temperature readings recorded by the system were close to axillary temperature readings taken with a mercury thermometer. The researchers concluded that the SmartSense system is not only accurate and safe to use but also improves the quality of care, saves nursing time, and improves work efficiency.
