King Edward Memorial Hospital to trial out of this world technology at neonatal intensive care unit

SPACE technology will be trialled at King Edward Memorial Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in the hope it could one day help save the lives of premature or ill babies.

The Department of Health is investigating the technology’s potential through a small proof-of-concept study.

The technology, known as Artemis, has previously been used to track the vital statistics of astronauts and has been known to detect subtle changes in a patient’s physiology up to 24 hours before visible signs of decline occurred.
