Abstract

UtopiaCompression and team put forth a novel solution for medical diagnostics and continuous monitoring of combat casualties in the battlefield to improve survivability while reducing cost to the military. We propose advances in both physiological diagnostic intelligence and associated physiological sensors systems for a complete solution. The system will consist of the state of the art physiological sensors and medical hardware communicating wirelessly to an embedded platform hosting diagnostic intelligence, connected to a medic device for simultaneous monitoring of multiple casualties. The system will provide alerts in advance for the emergent need of intervention and when administered the system will track intervention impact to provide actionable feedback to the medic during pre-hospital and transport medical care. The diagnostics will also accommodate for differences among individuals and function without prior medical information. It will maintain data continuity for downstream caregivers as casualties are transported through echelons of care. The system will be built with an open, modular architecture to enable constant evolution by modification and addition of sensors and diagnostic intelligence. These will translate into cost-of-ownership savings for TCCC response, lower battlefield KIA rates from potentially survivable causes, higher unit readiness levels and lower lifetime medical costs for combat wounded.
