Patient Monitoring

SCI Systems, Inc. has developed a unit that performs an electrocardiogram of a hospitalized patient and then is transmitted by telemetry. Heart readings are picked up by electrode attached to patient's body and delivered by wire to small box which is telemetry transmitter. Originating from space programs, these transmitted signals are relayed wirelessly to console in background which converts them to EKG data. Data is displayed visually and recorded on a printout; at the same time, it is transmitted to a central control station where a nurse can monitor the condition of several patients simultaneously.
