VisualECG: A bluetooth based software for ECG monitoring on Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)

Published

Conference Paper

VisualECG is a software application developed for ECG monitoring on Personal Digital Assistants (PDA's). Bluetooth technology is used to connect the ECG acquisition devices with the PDA receiver. This software is aimed to doctors that require a powerful tool capable to perform ECG monitoring using one of the latest wireless technologies. VisualECG uses hierarchical databases and files in order to store all of the ECG registers and all data related to authorized doctors and patients. Data storage is made keeping in mind the international laws related to privacy and data protection. In order to accomplish this, a powerful encryption system is employed to protect biomedical data and personal patient and doctors data for unauthorized accesses. VisualECG is a software application developed to improve health monitoring adding Bluetooth to the existing monitoring software. © 2004 IEEE.
