Abstract

In this paper a design is presented for combining a Personal Computer, along with advanced programming techniques, and basic medical equipment requirements to create a simplified, integrated piece of biomedical equipment. The goal is to design various modules of the hardware equipment, using the software. In this way the actual hardware can be minimized and standardized. The complete model has three components. First, a biomedical signal generator concept was introduced. Second, a patient EKG simulator was designed and built. Third, an EKG monitor was built to collect data from the patient. This paper explains the rationale and the methodology used in the design of this equipment. The paper demonstrates the facts regarding easy accessibility, scalability, and usefulness of the design. A procedure to assemble an EKG simulator reflecting any particular disease pattern has been explained. EKG monitor's interface aspect and various monitoring (recording) parameters information are elaborated.
