Streszczenie

Abstract: The article reviews the technical solutions of devices that enable the patient to monitor selected medical parameters in time. The authors referred to solutions that record data in internal memory as well as solutions enabling direct transmission of medical data, including information on the current location of the patient in the open space and inside buildings. The latest technical solutions of subassemblies allowing us to design a functionally optimised patient monitoring system in the field of sensor and telecommunications technology were also reviewed. Finally, the authors proposed preliminary assumptions for a functionally optimised patient monitoring system.
