Shauna BiggsPatient Monitoring in Ebola Treatment Centers

Shauna Biggs

Shauna Biggs, a student at Boston University’s School of Public Health, proposes a high tech solution for low-tech environments. Shauna’s wearable system consists of a low-cost bluetooth-enabled sensor and receiver that monitor the heart rate and temperature of ebola patients and notify clinicians when readings exceed pre-set levels. Both the sensor and receiver can be immersed in chlorine for disinfection.

This ingenious solution can be useful in a variety of infectious disease outbreaks in resource-poor settings, such as SARS, MERS-CoV and avian flu.
