It is well known in the medical community that information is paramount to save lives. In the battlefield scenario, information can be the difference between life and death. The correct and timely collection of data in the event of a casualty imposes serious challenges to medical person-nel in the battlefield. Among these challenges is the fact that the events and the care given to the warfighter right after the incident are not well documented. This lack of documentation often stems from the unfriendly environment caregivers face at the point of injury. Creative Electron, Inc. (CEI) plans to solve this problem with its Medical Voice Recorder (MVR). The MVR will be capable to transfer accurate information regarding the conditions in which soldiers were injured, thus providing continuity of medical records. By pro-viding a small form factor solution, analogous to the current dog tag, capable of withstanding physical and environmental insult as well as actively reducing ambient noise, pertinent medical information could be carried forward in a secure and continuous fashion. It is important to note that there are no commercially available systems that meet all these criteria.
