Low Cost Remote Bed Side Monitor to Fight COVID Pandemic

In order to avoid frequent visits of the medical support staff to the isolation wards to check on patients, Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications recommended a solution named Remote Bed Side Monitoring using Smartphones. When dealing with COVID-19-infected patients, healthcare workers have to be extremely careful. In such situations, the ideal method of monitoring patience is remotely via protected nursing stations. The use of smartphones and server software can aid in this and thereby minimize the exposure of healthcare personnel to contagious patients. Our use case employs smartphones (or similar IP-based camera solutions) to periodically capture data from bedside monitors. The data arrives at the server in real time and is processed to provide further alerts. This can reduce the need for healthcare personnel to directly attend to patients. Smartphone and similar IP-based capture devices can capture bedside monitor data and a live stream it for viewing in a remote Network Operation & Control Room. Then, only if there is an alarming surge in vitals or other necessity do medical professionals need directly attend to the patient. This will reduce the risk of the medical professionals getting infected. Several Optical Character Recognition algorithms can be run on the captured images to automate the process of alerts. Smartphones, which have microphones and displays, enable doctors/nurses to communicate with the patient, audio-visually. Other services, such as informational videos, inspirational videos and entertainment videos, audio-video calls with family/friends, etc, may also be provided to patients. This can be used for the healthcare personnel to assess patients’ mental condition and so that patients can interact with people remotely while in isolation.
