Bluetooth Medical Products
There are many industries that have benefited from Bluetooth technology and one of those is the health care
field. For years, people have been looking for ways to make the medical field more efficient. From ensuring
prescriptions are correct, to having medical information, that could save a person’s life, at hand, the medical
industry has strived to find ways to improve itself.
With the advent of wireless technology, Bluetooth medical products now make it easier to look up a persons
medical history, check their pulse, and see injuries before reaching the hospital. There are also ways to make the
inputting of information more accurate and creating sophisticated databases that keep information up to date and
easy to retrieve.
The MobiMed 300c is a computer device that enables ambulance personnel to gain access to a person’s medical
history. This is good for several reasons. First, the medical team can check to see if the person had any recent
injuries, which might cause further injury if they are moved. Second, it is used to check if a person is allergic
to any medication that might be used to ease pain or calm them down. Third, it is used to alert the hospital of the
person’s condition and what they will need to have ready upon arrival at the hospital.
This type of technology can also save a lot of time. Because it is wireless, an ambulance does not have to worry
about being out of range of the hospital’s frequency. Also, if the hospital cannot help the injured person, the
ambulance can immediately divert to another hospital which ultimately saves time and can save lives.
Other Bluetooth medical products include the pulse monitor, which measures a person’s pulse and relays the
information to a main computer. This is an important invention because it will free up nurses’ time. They can go
and attend to other patients without having to physically count and time a person’s heart rate. These pulse
monitors are worn on the wrist for a length of time determined by a doctor. They are great for those who have heart

in front of them makes a health care provider’s job much easier. This will eliminate human error and deliver
Teaching new medical professionals how to use this equipment is easy. Since many college students have already
been exposed to this type of technology, teaching those how to use specific equipment will not take long. Being
able to stay in constant contact with the hospital takes a lot of stress off ambulance drivers. Being able to call
for help anywhere in the area is also a relief. Knowing what a person is allergic to will help save lives and
reduce injuries. Because not all people wear medical alert bracelets or are able to speak after an accident,
knowing the kinds of medicine a person can and cannot take will help.
Bluetooth technology is used in many business settings and it should come as no surprise that the medical
profession has decided to use this type of equipment as well. Having technology that is reliable and that will help
save lives is a gift. Bluetooth medical products have helped countless people get their health back after an
accident or surgery.
