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 firstname.lastname@example.org and @Patrick_Mannion, respectively. Thanks!
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
