OLPC project started

By:Walter Karlen

ECE student projects[more]

Two of our ECE undergraduate students started to work on the design of a pulse oximeter for the XO platform, the laptop computer of the One laptop Per Child (OLPC) organisation.  Our goal is to spead more pulse oximeters out to the developing worlds and the XO is a particularly interesting platform because it targets kids. 
The XO will serve us and the community as a health education and medical device.

Phone Oximeter prototype at Mulago Hospital, Uganda[more]

Following successful usability trials here at BCCH and at Vancouver General Hospital, members of the PART and ECEM travelled to Africa this September to test the usability of the first Phone Oximeter prototype at Mulago Hospital in Kampala, Uganda. Composed of a pulse oximeter sensor and module connected to a mobile phone, the highly portable, battery-powered Phone Oximeter can convey the quality and trend of physiological data over time through an intuitive display.

This seed project, which has been funded by a UBC Martha Piper Research Award, has demonstrated the potential for enhanced delivery of information from a pulse oximeter to improve the safety of anesthesia care throughout the developing world.
