Fever: a warning symptom

Temperature is an essential physiological parameter to monitor in many hospitalizations and conditions, especially to detect the onset of infections.
For patients with weak immune defenses, reducing the intervention time is essential to avoid serious complications.

Oncology

For patients undergoing chemotherapy, the risk of infection is increased due to a low white blood cell count (neutropenia) caused by the toxic effect of chemotherapy on the bone marrow.
Early detection of fever is a major challenge in order to detect an infection quickly and act as fast as possible, especially when the patient is at home (source).

Renal insufficiency

Patients with kidney failure can benefit from home dialysis, improving their quality of life. This treatment option contributes to the reduction of health insurance costs.
However, these patients have many risk factors predisposing to infections, including immune deficiency and multiple skin entry sites. Early detection of infection is therefore crucial (source).

Post transplant follow-up

Infections are the first cause of complications in transplant patients.
These may be nosocomial or donor-acquired infections during the first month, or reactivated, opportunistic, or community-acquired infections afterwards.
Early alerting of physicians at the first symptoms of fever is also essential to identify and treat the infection as soon as possible (source).

Infectiology, reanimation, pediatrics...

In hospitals, continuous temperature monitoring is mainly done with restrictive and invasive devices (rectal or esophageal probes, etc.). It is therefore often limited to general anaesthesia and intensive care for emergency situations.

In infectiology, reanimation, pediatrics…, patients are monitored on an ad hoc basis (4 to 8 times a day). A fever episode may not be detected quickly. Continuous temperature monitoring without human intervention is therefore useful to:

  • Improve the quality of care (more reliable diagnostics),
  • Reduce the cost of hospitalization (early detection of patient’s health deterioration),
  • Improve patient comfort (less disturbances, especially at night).

Fever detection and remote alert solution

Temperature monitoring with a wearable device like Tucky is actualy the only solution to have a continuous monitoring in a comfortable way, and be able to detect the first signs of hyperthermia.

Tucky is a thin and flexible medical device, which adapts to all morphologies whatever is the age of the patient. Designed in France by EN/ISO 13485 certified teams, it reliably measures axillary temperature and transmits its data remotely.

When the temperature exceeds a programmed threshold, alerts are transmitted and appropriate actions can be triggered.

Tucky connects to relay boxes (Tucky Gateway) to transmit data to a secure health cloud (HDS certified).
The patient can be monitored throughout his or her entire care pathway: in the hospital, at home or at the doctor’s office.
Caregivers view the data and receive alerts via the Tucky Center application in SAAS mode.

Tucky Center allows the centralized monitoring of several patients, wherever they are. Real time data, alerts and history are accessible to the different care teams on an ergonomic interface.

Operating in SAAS mode allows to avoid IT structure and maintenance costs, while guaranteeing the highest level of security for health data (HDS certified host).
