In a mass-casualty situation, first responders often have to monitor dozens of injured people at once, to make sure information about each patient’s vitals is readily available. Previously, medics would have to take measurements repeatedly — a hugely time-consuming manual task that prevented them from administering emergency care. Now, the First Response Monitor, created by Cambridge Design Partnership, is a wearable device that can take over the task, monitoring patients’ heart rate and respiratory rate, providing medics with data on-demand.
