ABSTRACT
Standard Communication Protocol for Computer-assisted Electrocardiography (SCP-ECG) provides standardized communication among different ECG devices and medical information systems. This paper extends the use of this protocol in order to be included in health monitoring systems. It introduces new sections into SCP-ECG structure for transferring data for positioning, allergies, and five additional biosignals: noninvasive blood pressure (NiBP), body temperature (Temp), Carbon dioxide (CO(2)), blood oxygen saturation (SPO(2)), and pulse rate. It also introduces new tags in existing sections for transferring comprehensive demographic data. The proposed enhanced version is referred to as e-SCP-ECG(+) protocol. This paper also considers the pilot implementation of the new protocol as a software component in a Health Telemonitoring System.

Mentions: We use a wearable and a conventional portable DAS (Figure 10). The wearable DAS consists of vital sign measurement sensors (ECG, NiBP, SPO2, Pulse Rate, Temp, and PLE) able to communicate via Bluetooth, a GPS receiver (RoyalTek RBT-1000), and a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) device including Mobile ADSL capabilities. The wearable DAS is handled directly by the individual himself. The conventional portable DAS consists of a medical monitor (MM) (Criticare's Poet Plus 8100) acquiring vital signals (ECG, NiBP, SPO2, Pulse Rate, Temp, PLE, and CO2), a GPS receiver (RoyalTek RBT-1000), and a laptop (HP/Compaq nw8440) device including Mobile ADSL capabilities. The portable DAS is handled by a technician or a doctor and is already tested on another telemedicine system whose general architecture has been analyzed in [23] (without the GPS capability). The demographic and allergy data are introduced manually into PDA and laptop devices. The collected information in these devices is automatically organized in e-SCP-ECG+ files for local storage and forwarded to a remote expert's site for monitoring.
