Importance of remote monitoring devices during COVID19 pandemic.
Given that these devices allow patients to timely get the necessary care and/or advice, while still practicing physical distancing and easing the burden on hospitals and health care professionals, they are of huge value.
The #fda is allowing, without a prior approval, modifications to:
1. FDA cleared non-invasive monitoring #medicaldevices in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, as long as the modifications do not create any undue risk.
2. Devices that allow for increased #remotemonitoring capability as long as the modifications do not directly affect the physiological parameter measurement algorithms.
3. Existing technology for an application to more closely monitor the COVID-19 patients.
