All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Rishikesh and Bharat Electronics Limited (BHEL), a Navratna company of the Government of India in the defense sector, together have created the country’s first remote health monitoring system. Through this, the Vital parameters of corona virus infected patients in remote resource-less areas can be explored from anywhere.
AIIMS Director Professor Ravi Kant said that there was a widespread shortage of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) due to the ever increasing global outbreak of Corona virus. Due to which health care workers were at high risk of getting infected. Hence, AIIMS Rishikesh Dental team contacted BHEL Bangalore. AIIMS Director informed that with the joint efforts of both, a digital medical system has been developed, under which the doctor sitting in AIIMS, while at home, can monitor the patient’s body temperature and the amount of oxygen in the blood and the speed of his breath.
This will prevent the patient from being hospitalized unnecessarily. AIIMS Director Prof. Ravikant said that BHEL Bangalore is known for its expertise. Hence, BHEL has developed a system for this solution which will prove to be very useful for India in the medical field.
