AirStrip Technologies out of San Antonio, Texas has just received FDA approval of the company’s real time waveform monitoring software for the iPhone and Blackberry smart phones. The AirStrip OB application displays a live intrapartum fetal heart tracing and uterine tonometry data for obstetricians to watch over even while breaking for lunch in the cafeteria.
AirStrip OB allows obstetricians to use their iPhones to remotely access virtual real-time and historical waveform data for both the mother and baby, including heart tracings and contraction patterns, as well as nursing notes and exam status. The data is sent directly from hospitals’ labor and delivery units and can be accessed on the iPhone anytime, anywhere the doctor gets a cell-phone connection.
Already available on PDAs and Smartphones and in use by a rapidly growing number of obstetricians nationwide on Windows Mobile™ devices, the AirStrip OB/iPhone application provides doctors with multi-touch capabilities to quickly scroll and zoom through critical data.
The highly intuitive application maximizes real estate on the iPhone’s touchscreen, providing rapid visualization of more medical data per screen compared to any other mobile device or Smartphone available today. The application enables on-demand delivery of vital information about a number of patients across multiple hospitals.
