GPS AND GPRS BASED TELEMONITORING SYSTEM FOR EMERGENCY PATIENT TRANSPORTATION
Telemonitoring during the golden hour of patient transportation helps in improved Medicare. Presently there are different physiological data acquisition and transmission systems using cellular network and radio communication links. Location monitoring systems and video transmission systems are also commercially available. The emergency patient transportation systems uniquely require transmission of data pertaining to the patient, vehicle, time of the call, physiological signals like ECG, blood pressure body temperature, blood oxygen saturation, and location information. These requirements are presently met by using separate communication systems for physiological data and location that result in lot of inconvenience to the technicians, maintenance related issues, in addition to being expensive. This project presents design, development and implementation of such a telemonitoring system for emergency patient transportation using visual basic 6.0. This system is found to be very useful for emergency patient transportation being undertaken by organizations like Mater Misericordae Hospital Afikpo.
