Ever been in bed, lying next to someone who is ill and you’re struggling to sleep because your worried they might stop breathing? Or their heart might stop?

I have, and I thought… “What if there was a small unit or patch that they could wear. If something happens, it wakes up their partner – who can have a small alarm next to the or some sort of watch like device on their wrist which might vibrate or make a sound?”

Please don’t confuse this with those hospital machines which beep or flat line.

This could be useful in hospitals, where a nurse can wear one and have multiple patients connected to it, saving time – and lives.

Small battery powered modules could be place on an individuals skin, which detects heart rate & another on the person who is monitoring them.

Should the other person, stop breathing or heart stop – then this would wake them up to aid the individual.
