Smart Healthcare: Multi-parameter Patient Monitoring
Vantron’s EMC certified embedded computing board for medical device applications features a small footprint, EMC certification, low cost, low power, high reliability, and long-term availability. Clinical patient monitoring systems one such example application.
Multi-parameter monitor is an automatic, real-time, and long-term continuous monitoring of patient vital signs (such as ECG signal, heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, blood pressure, respiratory rate, and body temperature). By recording and analyzing all vital sign stream continuously, alerts and alarms can be intelligently generated to provide better patient care. It has become widely adopted in today’s clinical settings. A typical multi-parameter monitoring system contains a complex array of signal modules, pre-processing units, signal filtering, interference suppression units, storage, communication, display, and control sub-systems, all coordinated by a central processing unit. Serving as the heart of such a system, Vantron’s EMC certified embedded computing board for medical device applications features a small footprint, EMC certification, low cost, low power, and high reliability, and long-term availability. By combining powerful control and compute capability with a reliable communication hub into a medical-grade embedded board, Vantron has enabled a higher level of integration and cost-efficiency to provide equipment vendors to achieve better margins and enhance competitiveness.
