Bio-metric Clip Monitors Vital Statistics In Emergencies
A wearable monitoring device allows first responders to quickly attend to more people in mass-injury emergencies.
In disaster or battlefield situations, first responders often have to manually monitor dozens of people at once. Without a large staff, repeatedly taking the breathing and heart rates of multiple people can delay life saving emergency care. A new wearable device called the First Response Monitor, created by Cambridge Design Partnership, collects and transmits vital data in real-time, allowing medics to quickly attend to multiple people. The wearable bio-metric device clips onto the nose displaying vital statistics and can be linked to other equipment via Bluetooth, the data is added to a trends graph showing how these measurements change over time.
