Source: University of Bucharest
The latest developments and demands in the healthcare domain overwhelm the outpatients sector, while providing the security of patient monitoring against out of hospital risks becomes increasingly important. The paper presents a distributed data acquisition system for biomedical data that complies with the specific standards to continuous vital parameters monitorization at home. The system is conceived by using an ad hoc Bluetooth network composed of off the shelf accessible medical devices such as blood pressure monitor, blood glucose meter, body composition monitor, ECG monitor and a computer (desktop, laptop, PDA, etc) with regular internet connection.
