MedSENS è un progetto per lo sviluppo di strumentazioni mediche non invasive, per la misurazione accurata dei parametri vitali come la temperatura corporea centrale, la saturazione d’ossigeno e il battito cardiaco.
Measurement of vital-signs is a fundamental task in the therapy of critically ill patients. Along with measurements like arterial blood pressure also continuous observation of heart rate, arterial oxygenation and core temperature is state of the art in emergency medicine and critical care in EMS and in the hospital. Gathering all this sensory data is necessary to detect changes during extrication, transport and treatment of patients early to intervene when required. At this time there exists no device which is able to combine all these measurements in a non-invasive way and robust to extreme climates. A piece of medical equipment with such capabilities would lead to more precise treatments of patients. In this project such a device will be developed in conjunction with local partners and its capabilities tested in the laboratory (terraXcube), as clinically (university hospitals), as well as in field studies.
