Abstract:

<p>Efficient monitoring of physiological signals of injured people in a disaster affected area is always a challenging and tedious task. In this paper we propose an emergency medical service system which can be used in disaster hit areas. Our proposed system aims at reducing this problem and help doctors to serve the injured and save lives. The system designed is easily portable. This system can also be efficaciously link the disaster affected community with the doctor who is willing to assist from anywhere in the world. The proposed portable system can measure physiological signals of people without the requirement of elaborate patient monitoring system, which also consumes lot of power. The expedite response underpins our system and by its exclusive usage in the most challenging environments makes it a perfect solution for patient monitoring in disaster affected areas. The experimental results show the performance of our system is comparatively similar to the manually measured parameters. © 2010 ACM.</p>
