Abstract

Currently approved medical communication standards exist only for the higher level of medical care, and not for low level communication between bed side measurement and diagnostic devices of patient monitoring systems. Our system is a new approach. Using a vendor-independent, open, broadly supported industrial fieldbus in the medical area makes possible to interconnect bed side devices via a simple two wire cable at an economical cost. The main goal in the system is to demonstrate the benefits of open system design, support the connection of existing medical devices to the fieldbus system and allowing the further extension for integration into the hospital information system (HIS) and telemedicine (telemonitoring) applications.
