Neo-Sense: a real time data processing & acquisition unit for monitoring neonatal ECG in the delivery room

Download (4.34 MB)
Heart rate is the most important indicator of the clinical status of a newborn. It should be assessed as quickly and accurately as possible. Infants needing resuscitation require continuous and real-time heart rate monitoring, aiming to lower the incident of long-term consequences of poor adaptation after birth such as brain damage or death. The objective of this research is to design a solution to bring high resolution, real time ECG data to the delivery room using non-contact electric potential sensors [EPS]. Rapid and accurate acquisition of the neo-natal heart and breathing rates, as well as the facility for unobtrusive, autonomous & continual monitoring during intervention, can inform clinical intervention leading to better survivability and quality of life.
