I was a first gen paramedic, left the biz after 21 yrs and Pulse Ox was just getting on board ambulances at the time 93-94. This will truly be an important improvement and save a lot of time especially in ICU's and CCU's. In some cases the time it takes for a blood test is the time it takes to lose a patient. The 15k version will easily pay for itself in the first year of use.
Hooray for Masimo..and thanks for the helpful tech!
I'm currently looking for a robotic teardown candidate for an EETimes robotics special edition. Any and all suggestions welcome, here or by email or twitter at email@example.com and @Patrick_Mannion, respectively. Thanks!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
