Monitoring Heart Patients (ECG monitoring)

Providing high quality of health care is the main objective of health care providers. Often heart patients require continuous monitoring for diagnostic purposes or for monitoring the recovery as part of the treatment. DTI has developed software system prototype which allows real-time ECG monitoring. The main objective of the system is to capture the ECG signals regardless of the patient¡¯s location and transmit it to a central location (e.g., a hospital) for analysis. The system is designed as a two communication where alerts from the ECG analysis units can be relayed back to the patient for further instructions.
