Arrhythmia 1. SPVC; Supraventricular Premature Contraction 2. VPC; Ventricular Premature Contraction 3. Multifocal VPC 4. Short-run type VPC 5. R on T VPCEquipments at patient’s home
Solutions • Preparation of an independent circuit IP-Wireless WAN • Universal service finance U.S. 3. Internet Protocol Telephony through open competition ITU
Conclusions We have developed an inexpensive ECG data-transmission system to ease the provision of homecare. Connected to an IP-based wireless WAN for operation, this system is capable of automatically detecting arrhythmia in a patient residing at home and automatically sending the ECG data to the homecare service center.
