The authors describe an automated, non-invasive technology used to monitor patients' heart and respiration rates. The present study provides “proof of concept” data only, indicating that the technology accurately captures cardiorespiratory telemetry events of interest and did so with a very low rate of false alarms. As the authors acknowledge, future work will need to assess the system's impact on patient outcomes and its integration into the nursing workflow.
