When it comes to labor and conveyance, comfort and security are basic to guarantee a positive patient experience. However, 'labor' and 'comfort' are once in a while utilized in a similar sentence.

Luckily, another remote screen is changing the labor experience.

Patients can have the opportunity to pick their labouring position and get up, walk around—even bathe*—all while giving caregivers the fundamental information they need. Novii monitors the pulse of the infant, remotely transmits it to the Novii Interface, and effectively coordinates this information into the central nursing observation framework through the Corometrics monitor. This gives positive observing while at the same time giving the patients additional freedom and comfort. The establishment of 10 units of the Novii™ Wireless Patch System at the KHUH, Bahrain's Premier healthcare institution that offers top notch medical service to all citizens by utilizing best remedial and managerial practices and academic and research service, was supplemented by a three-day intensive training for more than 90 nurses, midwives and doctors.
