TERM PROJECT

Assisting paramedics in monitoring respiration easily, accurately & contnuously

Since respiration rates offers vital information, paramedics need to measure it several times throughout the journey to the hospital. Todays analogue method of measuring respiration rates forces the paramedics to take a step back and count seconds and chest movements. This creates obstructions in the general care of patients and is highly inaccurate. Especially when time is of the essence.
Pneorate offers the paramedics a way to monitor respiration rates accurately and continuously throughout every step of the treatment. With just a glance, the information is readily available on their hand at all times. They can follow trends and will be alerted if there are any changes in the breathing rate. This information is also stored and easily transfered to the hospital during hand off.

 

  • Place the radar patch on the patients chest

  • Connect the patch to the wrist device

  • The projector displays the breathing rate directly on to the paramedics hand
