XE5617G; Miniature Embedded Modem Module Links Home Medical Monitors.

DESCRIPTION:

Hospitals excel at treating really sick people. But, hospital care is expensive, and hospitals are really a bad place to recover. A patient generally recovers more quickly and is much happier at home; plus costs are greatly reduced. That said, you just can’t send sick people home. Doctors need to monitor the recovery. Telemedicine, home monitors permit the patient to come home earlier by giving the doctor the ability to monitor their progress. This same monitoring technology can also serve those with chronic illnesses to minimize office visits.

Modern home medical equipment uses a wide variety of medical sensors to monitor almost any condition. Once the data is gathered, the monitor sends health data like temperature, blood pressure, or heart rate to the doctor. Even a more complicated test like an EKG can be taken and sent. For chronic illnesses such as diabetes, regular transmission of blood sugar level can help a physician make needed changes in medications between office visits.

Successful home medical monitoring requires fast, reliable communications. The telephone network remains our most reliable communications system. A high-speed, dial-up modem like the Cermetek XE5617G supports the highest V.92 data rates with error correction and allows the doctor or patient to initiate the call.

Why Cermetek?

The XE5617G suits medical monitoring because it is small, supports high-speed data and fax, and includes loop voltage monitors to prevent interference with other calls on the home telephone line. The XE5617G is a full modem, covering an area of less than one square inch. This tiny modem permits the system developer to minimize the overall size of his system. A smaller system is more attractive and more convenient for the patient. The XE5617G also provides reliable high-speed, dial-up connections for both V.92 data and fax. High-speed modem connections allow rapid download of the medical data. Fax support permits the transmission of test results, like an EKG, in graphic form. Shared line features within the modem prevent the monitor from going off-hook and interrupting active calls or while in use, holding the line when a resident attempts a call. The later is particularly critical as the modem frees the phone line for potential emergency calls.
