UniSA Evaluates Computer Vision Technology to Monitor Premature Babies in Neonatal Units

Shots:

  • The University of South Australia’s scientists has evaluated non-contact technology in a study, monitoring 10 premature babies in an intensive care unit by tracking infant’s heart & respiratory rates
  • The study resulted that the system accurately detect apnea in pre-term infants who are prone to bradycardia and apnea when ECG did not work as it can damage infants’ fragile skin and leave them vulnerable to infection
  • The computer vision system captures subtle signals in a premature baby like invisible skin color variations which are amplified to detect cardiac activity providing nursing staff clear vision of pre-term infants
