Proejct Abstract

A Bio-Telemetry system allows for transmission of patient vital signs to a physician, researcher, or hospital wirelessly. This allows for out-patients to be monitored without being hooked up to numerous medical devices. This system could be combined with devices to monitor blood pressure, body temperature, heart rate, etc. This device would be battery powered and measure similar to the size and weight of a cell phone, allowing for the device to be easily transported. This device would have small screen displaying battery life, current levels of blood pressure, heart rate, or temperature. When the patient is experiencing potentially dangerous levels of vital signs, the device would alert the patient to seek medical help. This device would use radio waves to transmit this signal to the physicians, researchers, or hospital. This signal processing system would have a built in memory function in the case of the device losing power or signal. The memory of this device would be limited based on the size of the device. Keeping the device simple, the overall power consumption should be minimal and the device should have a durable protective case. Because of the built in memory function, when transferring data the full memory of the device will be transmitted. This would help minimize user error because this takes away the patient from having to enter in information or sending the proper information. This multi-functional bio-telemetry system could be used with multiple devices and help aid in research and medical monitoring.
