AirStrip OB for iPhone/Smartphone

Posted by medliorator on April 24, 2009

This AirStrip OB application provides the capability for physicians (Obstetricians) to use their PDA’s or Smart Phones to remotely access real-time fetal heart tracings (“strips”), maternal contraction patterns and other critical data from hospital labor and delivery units. This is accomplished through the AirStrip OB software, which is installed onto a mobile handheld device and utilizes a wireless internet connection (cell, WiFi, Bluetooth) to receive the patient’s data. Physicians then use PDA’s, SmartPhones or PC’s that are loaded with AirStrip OB software to remotely and securely access real-time and historical waveform and numeric data via a wireless internet connection.
