Abstract
DME CORPORATION PROPOSES PHASE I OF A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT TO ESTABLISH THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF A MINIATURIZED POCKET DEFIBRILLATOR FOR USE IN THE MILITARY EMERGENCY MEDICAL ENVIRONMENT. EFFORTS TOWARD ADVANCING STATE-OF-THE ART IN PORTABLE DEFIBRILLATORS IN FAVOR OF MINIATURIZATION IS TO BE CONCENTRATED IN FOUR AREAS: (1) USER REQUIREMENTS DEFINITION TO FULLY DEFINE AND INTERFACE PARAMETERS FOR SUCH EQUIPMENT, (2) SEARCH OF THE MEDICAL LITERATURE, ON-SITE RESEARCH, AND FOLLOW-ON CONTACT WITH MEDICAL RESEARCHERS TOWARD ESTABLISHING A BASIS OF FEASIBILITY FOR THE MODIFICATION AND/OR REDUCTION OF POWER REQUIREMENTS TO ACCOMPLISH DEFIBRILLATION, (3) INVESTIGATION INTO ADVANCES IN COMPONENT DESIGN WHICH COULD RESULT IN SIGNIFICANT SIZE REDUCTIONS, AND (4) INNOVATIVE PACKAGE DESIGN TO MINIMIZE UNIT BULK AND MAXIMIZE UTILITY AND PORTABILITY. SPECIFIC AREAS OF RESEARCH WILL INCLUDE: (1) VIABLE ALTERNATE OUTPUT PULSE WAVE FORMS, (2) REDUCED DELIVERED POWER REQUIREMENTS, (3) CAPACITOR MINIATURIZATION THROUGH THE USE OF FLOUROPLASTIC FILMS, (4) HIGH CAPACITY, HIGH DRAIN RECHARGEABLE AND PRIMARY BATTERY OPTIONS, AND (5) EFFICIENT TRANSFORMER AND INDUCTOR DESIGNS USING NICKLE-IRON INSULATED RIBBON CORES.
