Abstract
Generation of a single platform with multiple functional units requires a"fresh"approach. Battlefield CONOPS requires the immediate availability of multiple sensors and active devices. The sensors include: ultrasound, capnography, blood pressure measurement using non-invasive techniques, pulse oximetry, non-invasive hemoglobin measurement, electrocardiography and video laryngoscopy. Each of these sensors provides the clinician with information that may lead to the utilization of an active device such as defibrillation who last resort employment must be assured in its reliability. The redundant and unnecessary inclusion of control electronics, read out screens, multiple power supplies, extra batteries and poor design flexibility leads to too much weight, a costly device and overall inadequate performance. The proposed study will show that the Integrated Clinical Environment (ICE) can be utilized to allow incorporation of best of breed sensors and devices in a package which can simultaneously display data of at least 3 patients"vital signs, incorporate remote monitoring, operate for 7+ hours with battery power while providing interoperability with Special Operations Forces (SOF) field computing devices. The integration of best of breed devices into a single platform will allow the necessary weight, power, functionality and performance specifications to be achieved using battlefield CONOPS.
