Overview

Projektreferat M√•let med projektet √§r att bygga upp en plattform f√∂r utveckling av sensor- och kommunikationssystem f√∂r tr√•dl√∂s √∂vervakning av viktiga medicinska parametrar p√• sjukhus och i hemmilj√∂. En fast f√∂rbindelse mellan patient och apparatur inneb√§r stor risk f√∂r r√∂relseartefakter samt en r√∂relsebegr√§nsning f√∂r patienten. Sensorerna inneh√•ller en bl√•tandsmodul och kommunicerar via denna med en mottagarenhet. Denna enhet skall i sin tur kommunicera via lokala eller globala n√§tverk med omv√§rlden. F√∂ljande delprojekt kan identifieras inom projektet: ¬∑ Utveckling av ett anv√§ndarv√§nligt och medicinskt p√•litligt telemetriskt EKG-√∂vervakningssystem baserat p√• Bluetooth‚ĄĘ teknologi. ¬∑ Utveckling av en flerkanalig multisensor baserad p√• Bluetooth‚ĄĘ teknologi f√∂r simultan registrering av flera medicinska parametrar. Delprojektet inkluderar √§ven √∂verf√∂ring av m√§t- och patientdata samt styrning av sensorsystemet. ¬∑ Klinisk utv√§rdering av EKG-√∂vervakningssystemet med avseende p√• s√•v√§l st√∂rningsreduktion som √∂kad r√∂relsefrihet f√∂r patienten. ¬∑ Hemodynamisk unders√∂kning vid dialysbehandling med det telemetriska PPG-√∂vervakningssystemet. The aim of the project is to build a platform for development of sensor- and communication systems for wireless surveillance of important medical parameters at hospitals and in home environment. A fixed connection between patient and equipment implies a large risk of movement artifacts in addition to a limitation of movement for the patient. The sensors includes a Bluetooth‚ĄĘ-module, through which they communicate with a receiver unit. This unit will further communicate through local or global networks. Following subprojects can be identified within the project: ¬∑ Development of a user-friendly and medical reliably telemetric ECG- surveilliance system based on Bluetooth‚ĄĘ-technology. ¬∑ Development of a multi-channel multisensor based on Bluetooth‚ĄĘ-technology for simultaneous registration of several medical parameters. This subsystem also includes transmission of measurement- and patient data and control of the sensorsystem. ¬∑ Clinical assessment of the ECG-surveillance system with respect to noise reduction and increased mobility for the patient. ¬∑ Hemodynamic assessment during dialysis by the telemetric PPG-surveilliance system.
