DESCRIPTION (Verbatim From Applicant's Abstract): 58,800.000 Americans have one
or more types of cardiovascular disease (CVD). A need exists for patients to be
able to have long-term recordings of patient's ECG without burdening the
patient with a large. Pager, size-device or to require the patient to take
positive actions. This program will develop a miniature, single channel
wireless physiological monitor transmitter that will allow ECG to be monitored
and instantaneously transmitted without any action by the patient. It will
provide a link between the patient's heart and the physician's computer. The
physician will be able to see the ECG of the patient at any time, whether the
patient is in the hospital, at an extended care facility, or at home or work by
using the local Ethernet within the hospital or telephone network when outside
the hospital. It will also record the ECG on a personal computer for months or
years if desired. This is particularly important for syncope monitoring. The
patient need not push a button or call on the telephone. Everything is done
automatically. Finally, it will call 911 or other emergency numbers when
physician programmed conditions are detected by the software, without any
action by the patient.
In addition to being use to monitor physiological parameters on cardiac patients, the telemetry
system can be used to communicate the EEG, EMG, or a vital sign from patients in the
hospital or a home without interfering with similar systems of other patients. The same
unit has numerous industrial and commercial applications for real time control and monitoring.
The system can also be used for markets as diverse as conducting special studies in the
workplace to controlling virtual reality games.
