Student thesis: Bachelor


Research shows that cardiac arrest is common outside hospitals and that they usually have a fatal outcome if they do not receive care as soon as possible. Many cardiac arrests occur in private settings where there is no pacemaker, family member or outsider who can help. The purpose of this study is to find out how a remote monitoring system with a user interface through an app can be designed to real-time diagnose patients with cardiovascular disease outside the hospital and accelerate emergency response. The study has been based on concept-driven design research with a qualitative approach and interviews with both open and closed questions. The individuals who have been interviewed are cardiologists who work in the cardiology department at Ryhov County Hospital in Jönköping. The chosen method has been combined with a literature search in healthcare technology and UX / UI design. The study results in a proposal for a user interface, through an app, which offers health overview and real-time diagnosis. Using these statistics, algorithms can notify the user in the app if their values are normal or abnormal. The algorithms can also warn the user through notifications in the event of serious health changes when the user needs urgent care. The app also offers site location and that SOS-alarm can be alerted directly in the event of serious health changes. Emergency response can then be accelerated by SOS-alarm sending an ambulance to the place where the patient is located immediately.
