Respiratory rate (RR), or the number of breaths per minute, is a vital clinical sign that represents ventilation i.e. the movement of air in and out of the lungs. It should be a part of patient’s holistic assessment, given RR changes frequently to adjust to the body’s homeostatic balance. The normal accepted range for an adult is 12-20 breaths/min; however, this can vary according to the patient’s age and medical condition. A respiration rate under 12 or over 25 breaths per minute while resting may signify deterioration.

The Philips Health Band is a wrist-worn wearable device that measures and provides Respiratory endpoints including Respiratory Rate and Resting Respiratory Rate. This technology leverages Bluetooth/ cellular connectivity to mobile and web-based applications, to enable 24/7 data capture and real-time monitoring. The Health band offers one-minute epoch data granularity and patient reported outcome (PRO) capabilities to enable clinical researchers to leverage data intelligence.
