EKG and MRI real-time data transmissions from ambulance to hospital

In certain cases, critical patient data like EKG and MRI needs to be transmitted from an ambulance to a hospital or from a small hospital to a medical specialist at a larger hospital. In one such implementation, Systems Guidance Ltd., a computer software and hardware supplier in the UK, has developed a Remote Patient Monitoring System (RPMS). Vital information including EKG waveform, pulse oximetry, heart rate and blood pressure is captured either at the scene or en route to hospital. It is then transmitted in real-time to a hospital emergency room in a matter of seconds over the Mobitex network. The information is monitored by the consulting doctor, who can make immediate diagnosis and transmit advice back to the ambulance.
