Portable remote patient telemonitoring system

A system and method for monitoring vital signs and capturing data from a patient remotely using radiotelemetry techniques. The system is characterized by a cordless, disposable sensor band with sensors form measuring full waveform ECG, full waveform respiration, skin temperature, and motion, and transmission circuitry for the detection and transmission of vital signs data of the patient. A small signal transfer unit that can either be worn by the patient, e.g., on his or her belt, or positioned nearby receives data from the sensor band, which it then forwards by e.g., radio transmission to a base station that can be located up to 60 meters away. The base station receives data transmissions from the signal transfer unit and is designed to connect to conventional phone lines for transferring the collected data to a remote monitoring station. The base station may also capture additional clinical data, such as blood pressure data, and to perform data checks. Patient safety is enhanced by the ability of the base station to compare clinical data, e.g., ECG, against given profiles and to mark events when appropriate or when the base station is programmed to do so. Such events are indicated to the physician and could be indicated to the patient by reverse transmission to the signal transfer unit. A remote monitoring station allows the presentation and review of data (including events) forwarded by the sensor band. ECG analysis software and a user-friendly graphical user interface are provided to remotely analyze the transmitted data and to permit system maintenance and upkeep. The system of the invention has useful application to the collection of patient clinical data during drug trials and medical testing for regulatory approvals as well as management of patients with chronic diseases.

External forceps channel device for endoscope

The present invention was made in the light of the foregoing backgrounds, and an object thereof is to provide a forceps channel add-on device for an endoscope, provided on an outer periphery of an insertion portion of the endoscope. The forceps channel add-on device for an endoscope is an external forceps channel device for an endoscope, which is capable of providing two forceps channels or more without controlling the luminous intensity and the field of view of the endoscope, capable of extracting a substance larger than the bore diameter of the forceps channel multiple times while using the endoscope in a state of not being drawn out, without imposing a heavy burden on a patient, and also capable of performing examination after an operation as to whether complications are incurred after the evulsion, whether there is any other affected part overlooked, and so forth. An external forceps channel device for an endoscope, provided with an external forceps channel which is capable of being repeatedly inserted and extracted in a way of being guided by a guide provided on an endoscope separately and independently therefrom along an outside of an insertion portion of the endoscope while using the endoscope without drawing it out, the endoscope incorporating an air supply path, a light source, a CCD camera, and a forceps channel and including the insertion portion and an maneuvering portion, characterized in that provided is the external forceps channel capable of repeatedly extracting a foreign substance larger than a bore diameter of the incorporated forceps channel in a way of being guided by the guide along the outside of the endoscope, together with the whole external forceps channel itself in a state where the foreign substance is grasped by forceps inserted through the external forceps channel, and that provided is the external forceps channel capable of being repeatedly inserted in a way of being guided by the guide along the outside of the endoscope in a state where the endoscope is not drawn out.
