Abstract

Denna avhandling behandlar tekniska möjligheter för utveckling av ett trådlöst EKG-övervakningssystem. Ett stort arbete har lagts vid att utveckla ett fysiskt litet och lätt system som ger patienten en smidig och komfortabel övervakning. Detta ger även medvetna fördelar i ett försök att reducera de störningar som påverkar registreringen av hjärtats elektriska aktivitet och som tyvärr är frekvent förekommande. Avhandlingen omfattar fyra papper. Tre behandlar hur Bluetooth™ teknologi kan användas i ett patientövervakningssystem samt ett vilket behandlar artefakter vid EKG övervakning. Bluetooth™ har valts tack vare standardens robusta och säkra radiokommunikation dess låga strömförbrukning och minimala storlek, vilket ger en attraktiv möjlighet för denna typ av system. Mitt största intresse i detta arbete är utveckling av den patientnära delen och behovet utav ett sådant system. Resultaten visar att Bluetooth™ är fullt möjligt att användas och är väl lämpat för trådlös patient övervakningThis thesis discus the possibilities for the development of a wireless ECG monitoring system. Great efforts have been made to make this system physically small and lighted, as this will give the patient a suitable and comfortable surveillance. It will also give advances in reducing the frequently occurring artefacts that affects the registration of the hearts electrical activity. The thesis comprises four papers. Three about how Bluetooth™ technology can be used in a patient monitoring system. The last paper is about the occurrence of artefacts in ECG supervision. Bluetooth™ has been chosen due to the standards robust and secure radio communication, its low power consumption and minimal size, which makes it an attractive solution for this type of system. My biggest interest in this work is the development of the part close to the patient in, and also the need of, such a system. The results shows that it is possible to use Bluetooth™, and that it is well suited for wireless patient monitoring.
