ECG-BIONET: A global biomedical network for human heart monitoring and analysis: Performance needs of an electrocardiogram Telemedicine platform for medical aid at the point-of-need
2006 (English)In: 25TH IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTER COMMUNICATIONS: VOLS 1-7, PROCEEDINGS IEEE INFOCOM 2006, New York: IEEE , 2006, 3282-3283 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, we propose a Tele-medicine application platform as a medical aid for patients suffering from Heart malfunction. We focus on heart diseases since they remain by far the major cause of death in the globe. Our solution utilizes the Satellite communication protocol DVB-RCS (Digital Video Broadcast- Return Channel Satellite), Wi-Fi, and the Network-on-Chip (NoC) technology. We utilize the 12-lead ECG biomedical technique to detect heart disorders via the biomedical NoC, which transmits the medical alarm and results via the biomedical network, ECG-BIONET. We do not investigate the DVB-RCS standard or Wi-Fi technology, but rather we try to utilize this technology, and we look at it from a performance point of view for our application by investigating three parameters, namely: delay, packet loss, and reliability. We follow a top down approach by looking at the needs of the application from a performance guarantee for our specific-purpose network.
