Title: Untying the Knots: Wireless Remote Patient Monitoring
Wireless Remote patient monitoring systems can provide continuous assessment of vital signs, facilitating early detection of abnormalities. They enable vital signs of patients, on general hospital wards, to be monitored, raising the alarm when abnormalities are detected. Existing patient monitoring processes and systems in hospitals are discussed. The development in patient monitoring systems will be elaborated. This will be followed by a discussion of a proposed remote patient monitoring system for general hospital wards, using mobile and wireless communication technologies. The seminar will be concluded by discussing progress on various building blocks of a prototype system which have, so far, been developed.
