In-flight ECG data transfer becomes a reality

14th February 2018 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Flightcell International has carried out successful integration between its DZMx and medical monitors, enabling 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) data to be transferred from an aircraft in-flight during emergency services patient transfers.

Both the Zoll X series and the LifePak 15 monitor defibrillators have been validated.

Flightcell DZMx is an aviation communications system that provides satellite and cellular voice, data and tracking services.

The technology has been achieved by using cellular broadband data and a Wi-Fi or Ethernet internet connection to access Zoll online account and LifePak LIFENET systems. The technology can operate with any medical monitor/defibrillator that can transmit data via WiFi to a hotspot gateway.

John Wyllie, CEO, Flightcell, said:  ‘Our customers can now send ECG data to the [emergency department] ahead of their arrival, giving staff more time to mobilise and prepare.'
