Tim Gee, a medical “connectologist”, goes to AACN/NTI (the National Teaching Institute™ and Critical Care Exposition), discovers the catwalk of LifeSync (covered earlier) and files a report at his website Medical Connectivity Consulting:
I went by the LifeSync booth today. They’ve gotten some adoption for their wireless ECG electrode system. They have a very interesting implementation that shows the basic requirements for wireless sensor based monitoring. You can see the electrode harness that provides reduced noise and false positive alarms, and the patient transceiver (on the right arm). This wireless rig connects over Bluetooth (1.1, class 2) with a monitor transceiver that is connected to the monitor. As I took his photo, one of the many female bystanders told him to smile. I cut his head off, to which he said, “I’m used to that.”
We need more beefcake.jpgs, Tim!
