The medical sign sensors are coupled to a medical sign data processor that forms statistics from the medical sign data and forms a modified Fast initial Response FIR Shewhart cumulative sum and a variance cumulative sum to detect changes in health state. When a change in health state is detected the medical sign data processor displays the statistics on a display and logs them on a printer.
