  • Patent number: 5458124
    Abstract: A wireless transmitter module for use in a system for monitoring at least one physiological condition of a subject. The transmitter module includes a housing and an electrode patch preferably having three closely spaced electrodes provided on a first surface thereof. The first surface of the patch is coated with a non-allergenic adhesive in regions surrounding the electrodes, whereby the patch is securable to the subject by the adhesive to permit sensing of a physiological signal of the subject by the electrodes. The transmitter module further includes circuitry internal of the housing for detecting a physiological signal sensed by the electrodes and for transmitting a signal corresponding to the physiological signal to a receiving unit.

  • Patent number: 5172698
    Abstract: The telephonic pacemaker monitoring device of the present invention eliminates the need for external electrodes that wrap around the fingers or wrists, or make contact with the skin on the chest. The monitoring unit has four finger touchpads and a communications station including a transmitter and a visual display located on the face of the device. The monitoring device also has a feedback system which enables the operator at the receiving center to immediately notify the patient via the visual display if a proper transmission or a faulty transmission is occurring. The feedback system and the visual display also enable the operator at the receiving center to notify the patient if increased finger pressure on the touchpads is needed or if the telephone handset should be picked-up for verbal communication. This feedback system and visual display eliminate the delay in notifying the patient that a faulty transmission has occurred.
