In the event of a medical emergency onboard an aircraft, the staff typically take charge first. The e+ Emergency Patch has been designed to be easy to use for flight attendants without much medical training, enabling a diagnosis to be made immediately so that treatment can be attempted promptly.
This concept clinical gauge was developed by Eduardo Rincón and Gallardo Martinez as a pair of compact components that fit snugly into an airplane First Aid kit. The e-patch includes an oximeter and a miniature ECG that features a digital display. A passenger in trouble can be fitted with these devices and his oxygen levels and heart rate can be observed. By this point, hopefully a doctor on board will have approached the scene, taking over with the information learned from the e+ Emergency Patch.
