    Study: Vital Signs Bear Constant Watching

    Most adult postoperative inpatient units base clinical decisions on episodic, manual vital sign collection (eVSC)--every four to 12 hours. Missed warning signs can result in preventable deaths, report Sue Verrillo, DNP, RN, CRRN, Maria Cvach, DNP, RN, FAAN; Krysia Hudson, DNP, RN, BC, and Johns Hopkins Hospital colleague Bradford Winters, PhD, MD, FCCM, in "Using Continuous Vital Sign Monitoring to Detect Early Deterioration in Adult Postoperative Inpatients." They compared eVSC and a proposed standard of continuous vital sign monitoring (cVSM), finding a "27% decrease in the complication rate, and a clinically significant decrease in transfers to an intensive care unit and failure-to-rescue (FTR) events rate." In the Journal of Nursing Care Quality.
