UK MoD orders medical monitors

22nd March 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The UK Ministry of Defence has placed an order with Remote Diagnostic Technologies (RDT) for medical monitors that are designed to help facilitate emergency treatment for ill or injured deployed Royal Navy, British Army, and Royal Air Force personnel.

The £14 million contract, placed through the NATO Support and Procurement Agency, covers the delivery of 444 Tempus Pro monitors, with another 900 monitors expected to be ordered over the next five years.

The lightweight, robust and portable battery-powered monitor can be used on land, at sea and in the air, including in medical evacuation vehicles and aircraft, battalion aid stations, hospital ships and field hospitals. It transmits medical data such as blood pressure, pulse and respiratory rate in real time back to medical facilities and treatment teams, giving them a better understanding of a patient's condition ahead of time.

The monitors will help to provide consistent and streamlined medical support, meaning the records of all sick and injured armed forces personnel can easily move with them as they progress through different levels of care.
