Special Operations Command has divided patient care into three phases, evacuation from the hazardous region, triage and transport, and hospital care. A device is required for Phase Two that can sample, monitor and display vital signs, log the parametersin memory for up to twenty-four hours and download vital sign information once the patient has arrived at the medical facility. This system will not only provide the medic with life saving information, it will also provide the medical staff at thehospital with the vital sign history during transport. Extreme Endeavors is proposing the Field Medical Monitoring System for this application (FiMMS).Special forces and other military personnel generally require medical care in less than hospitable environmental conditions, requiring the FiMMS to be durable and able to work in any conditions present on Earth. Extreme Endeavors specializes indevelopment of equipment for austere environments and has experience in some of the world's most severe medical emergencies. Utilizing experiences that taught us how to develop electronics for Antarctica and inside burning structures, Extreme Endeavorswill provide proof of concept for the FiMMS in this Phase I project. Extreme Endeavors main goal is to commercialize this product for SOCOM, with the stringent environmental specifications and aircraft worthiness specifications present within SOCOM, the FiMMS could easily be applied to the civilian sector. TheDepartment of Defense is composed of 1,413,577 personnel as of September 2002, all of which could unfortunately require the use of this device. There are over 28,000 fire departments in the United States, all of which could utilize the FiMMS in respondingto emergencies, being the first on scene of automotive accidents and other tragedies.
