hello all from Edmonton, Alberta

Iron

very nice presentation

Iron

Thank you Charles, a very informative and well run course

Iron

It's not  too late to say "Thanks you!" . Very good presentation! I would also like in the future, Digi-Key and Design News to offer some training in Clinical Engineering.

Iron

Very good over view

 

Thank you, Charles  :)

and a big shout-out to Stephaney at Design News who keeps us all in order (and sane)!!

Iron

Thanks to Rich Nass, Design News, Digi-Key, and most important ALL OF YOU for this week!  It has been a blast!  See you around here!

Iron

oh, that is great.  thanks for the answer, Charles.

Iron

Yes - consultation, patient moving from one to the other or even be visiting.

Iron

11073 is not - but HL7, IHE, etc are all XML frameworks

Iron

or even in one format, would a Canadian's health record be read by a hospital in the U.S.A.?

Iron

Most are based on XML

Iron

file format standard, i mean.  SGML, HTML, XML, etc.

Iron

here is a question.  are there any standard issues in terms of medical record?

Iron

Any more questions? I hear the "day job" calling - literally...

Iron

I had the President of a major chain of nursing homes ask me point blank, "You're not going to be coming into our centers and TRIPPING OLD PEOPLE, are you???"

Iron

I'll let you know if I find anyone around here that could work with you.  Thanks again for the presentations!

Iron

But for a Phase II clinical trial, we needed to be in a care center.  We even wore the sensors ourselves.  I did more pratfalls than Chevy Chase (and Pres Ford) combined

 

Iron

OK, good.  I was hoping you wouldn't have to drop people.

Iron

Doug - We DID - we had two crash dummies!

Iron

And thank YOU ALL for participating!  Please stay in touch - my email and website are on the last slide and I am charleslord on LinkedIn

 

Iron

Charles, would you be able to use dummies for the trials?  Our university has a "technical" nursing program.

Iron

That is scalable like this one - there were over 700 people signed up for these classes!

 

Iron

Thanks Charles, I appreciate you service to us.

Iron

Again, I apologize for the audio issues.  I have used a LOT of different platforms for past webinars through my company and through the IEEE and all have their hiccups.  That is one product that I would love to see - an AFFORDABLE bulletproof webinar host!

 

Iron

Whew - I read the chat window end to end and see no outstanding questions! A LOT of great feedback on future classes and on what some of you are doing.  And DonH, yes they do have to report falls - but the issue we ran into was the fear (remember these where the bean-counters not practicians) that showing someone had a 10G peak impact against the floor or wall would bring on more lawsuits.  And any worn sensor may show that if it is what takes the initial impact.  I would LOVE to find someone to do the clinicals (and regain my SBIR funding from DHHS and NIA) and go forward!

 

Iron

Thanks Charles for excellent presentation.

Iron

Thanks Charles.  A good week and a large amount of information covered in the time available. 

Will look for you in future presentations, inclusing August re : Real Time systems ( I used to work in that area a number of years ago, including application on Vax/Vms platforms if I am still allowed to use those terms - some people hate hearing about that - some loved it.)    It will be a bit if a refresher and a chance to see where things are in 'todays hardware & applications'   Best Regards,  ~TomH~

Iron

yap, i have already registered with that

Thanks Charles and Rich. Have a good week you guys.

Iron

Was very interesting class, thanks Charles

Iron

Thanks Charles. Very informative overview of a complex subject.

great and happy weekend sir

Thanks all - give me a minute for coffee and to scroll back and I will be here to answer the questions that you entered!

 

Iron

Awesome. Thanks again, Charles

richnass@ We big audio problem, I appreciate if you can fix that.

Iron

Thank you Charles!

Iron

Thank you, RIch, Design News and DIGI-Key

Iron

Thanks for the course Charles

 

Iron

Charles, thank you very much for your efforts in making the class a lot of fun and very insightful

 

Thank you nice presentations!

Iron

Thanks Rich!!

 

Iron

Thank you Charles & Rich for the informative presentation.

Iron

Thank you very much, great presentation Charles. 

Iron

Thanks and have a nice weekend.

Iron

I want to thank you for the insite into the Medical Device Industry.

Bill Coffey PE

Iron

nice job CJLord ... take care and be well ... I also enjoyed your ZigBee class ...

me too, appreciated a lot...thanks Sir Charles for the presenatation

Great Presentation, Thanks very much

Iron

Thanks Charles and Rich, Another great class...great week! 

Iron

Thank you Charles

 

Iron

Thank you very much for all the knowledge put in the webinar!!

 

Iron

You said the no one in a nursing home wants to admit there is a fall.  On the contrary, they must report those and have documentation to support their response in both nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

They have alarms on chairs and beds to sound off if the patient gets up.  If they had fall monitors (now much more advanced with MEMS accelerometers), then it would allow fall monitoring without the devices tattling on the resident every time they get up.

Iron

Thanks again Charles for a good presentation

Iron

Thank you for the series, Charles. It helped a lot

 

nice presentation ... need to re-think the week's presentations and package them in my mind ... certainly good to begin a review of medical electronics ... focus on prevention ... someone once said ....

Intellectuals solve problems, Geniuses prevent them ...

thank you very much Charles!!

Iron

Thanks Charles

Platinum

Thanks Charles, another excellent presnetation.

Iron

anyway, i will go through again from the start on day 1 so that i can understand the topics.

Can anyone to add a reference to the list on Slide 19?

Blogger

yap Sir, thanks a lot.

thanks for the links as shown in the presentation that would be great for references...

this is new to me the way presenting the subject unlike the usual webinars that i am always attending...but these are good because i am the one manipulating the slides with regards to the topic.

RIch - On the question for future courses, will be great if there will be more medical related content, with more specific examples. E-health is hot topic not only for elderly, but for infants and also completely healthy people in all ages, who has minor problems here and there. Going and waiting at the hospital (even with private insurance) is not the best solution - in terms of money, time and comfort. Using e-helth private or local station on the other side seems very interesting, even connected with a lot of standards and legal limitations. Diagnostic or even treatment solutions can be very interesting for emergency cases in remote locations, during severe weather, etc.

multitasking/rtos

Iron

Topic: Disaster prep with electronics, solar or alternative energies. 

Iron

http://osilayers.org/

Iron

1- RTOS

2- Multitasking

Iron

thanks to everyone, my colleagues and classmates here, wishing you all in good day!

Medical Data Storage is quite sensitive work as far as engineering design is concern, but, let me see how the presentation is. I know that this presentation would be valuable to all of us in engineering practice as well as users.

regards & good evening once again to everyone.

I'd love to hear your response to Charles' question:

What topics would you like to see covered in a future Design News / Digi-Key Continuing Education Center class? Medical? Multitasking?

Blogger

Helo from great day Atlanta.

 

Iron

Glad to have lecture now

Iron

Audio is very good,

Iron

reloaded page now audio

Lesson is starting...

Iron

Good Afternnon from Sunny Boston, TGIF, Sumata in hand!

Iron

finally audio sound is OK.

 

Iron

Good, got audio now

Platinum

Audio from moderator

I can hear the moderator, but not Charles.

Iron

wow... I can hear Rich now!

Iron

Now audio is available and clear.

Iron

Audio HISS is available.

Iron

No sound still after flash.

Iron

CJ Lord needs his coffee, be patient.

Iron

Rich, I can't hear even you (understand that Charlses is re-dialing)

Iron

After attending the Embedded Vision Summit in San Jose last month, I bought the "Blackfin® Embedded Vision Starter Kit" for $199 through Avnet (http://www.em.avnet.com/en-us/design/drc/Pages/Blackfin-Embedded-Vision-Starter-Kit.aspx"). 

 

Perhaps the medical device community could create a kit for engineers, high school and college students, elementary school students, boy scouts, cub scouts, and girl scouts (I mention all of these categories since the kit could contain different levels of sophistication and costs).

 

I will bring the vision kit to my 10 year old son's class, and also show it to the cub scouts in his pack.

Iron

is webinar 1 hour long ?

 

Iron

Problem is on our end.

Blogger

the player bar shows seconds counting... the bar shows the buffer being filled and used... but 100% silence...

Iron

Hang on. Charles is dialing in now. Apologies.

Blogger

Hello darkness, my old friend

Iron

No Audio. 1st time I've had a problem

Please wait folks.

Iron

There is no live audio (not even hiss) at this time. Moments ago Moderator audio said issue with Lecturer Dial in line.

Iron

I also use firefox... reload the page, click the play button... getting the "blogtalk radio" followed by silence... yesterday it was some classical music..

Iron

Another issue is security. How can we apply different security schemes to different wireless applications?

Iron

Yes - got audio for a brief announcement from the host, but Charles did report a problem getting into the dial-in for his audio. 

Iron

no one is talking, is host sleeping ?

 

Iron

Someone is on mute

Iron

Same for me no sound

Sorry folks. Technical difficulty. Please hang on for a minute

Blogger

audio clear here on firefox :)

Iron

unable to get audio

Iron

I see the player streaming, but it's just silence...

Iron

Modrator reported audio issue with lecturer dial-in line.

Iron

How about RFID?

Walmart many years ago said they wants to apply RFID tags to all their merchandise. But so far, no big change happened. What's the biggest obstacle for doing that, cost? And how about the UHF RFID?

Iron

FYI - getting audio  NOW OK (east coast - BUffalo, NY)

Iron

We are having a tech issue - please stand by

Iron

Audio is live. Moderator is talking

Iron

Hello from Toronto, ON.

Iron

Iron

Good morning from Valdez

Good morning from CA

 

Iron

How about "Intro to RTOSs" so that we can understand those myriads of books we bought to learn....

Iron

Charles, Hands on sounds interesting.  What might that be -- having an evaluation kit in our hands as part of the class exercises and homework?  I might pay something to have the actual stuff in my hands.

Platinum

Hello from Sacramento.

Iron

@Rich - I'm getting no audio on the dial-in line!!!

Iron

CHarles : topic is ??

Iron

Corona, Ca signing in here.

Iron

(btw, my next class here is in late August)

Iron

Greetings from Buffalo.

Iron

Aloha from Montana

Platinum

NFC and medical will be agood one.

Iron

Near field communication? That would be a good one also.

 

Tony, multitasking vs RTOS was my first choice, but we will see what comes up!

 

Iron

I think multitasking is an interesting topic for me.

Iron

Hey Guys and Gals - I will ask this again, but here's your chance to think about it and give your feedback! What topics would you like to see covered in a future Design News / Digi-Key Continuing Education Center class? Medical? Multitasking? Something "hands-on"?

Iron

i am waiting for this event how it goes and i don't know what's the time here in Doha...

thanks richnass, i will...

Good day all from Semi-sunny Asheville, NC!! It is getting close to 80F here which of course means thunderstorms!  Keep fingers crossed that we don't have one here, at least until 3:15PM EDT.
