Author information

  • 1Department of Electronic Engineering, Fudan University, Shanghai, China.


In this paper, a novel successive ECG telemetry monitoring prototype is developed to evaluate the effect of monitoring for those out-of-hospital patient who has serious arrhythmia and/or possesses the risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). This system has such features as: real-time, continuous, telemetry monitoring, wide range, long distance, and long term etc. The developed prototype consists a pocket-size patient-side monitor and a monitoring center placed in a hospital, which continually collects every patient's ECG through GPRS mobile network and automatically analyzes it, if any danger found, instantly send medical warning message to patient. Based on the subsequent experiments on three volunteers in daily activity situation, the preliminary results indicate three-channel ECGs of each volunteer and his localization information can be real-timely and continuously monitored in the center.
