Description & Coverage
Description:

Neonatal monitoring refers to the monitoring of vital physiological parameters of premature infants and full-term infants that are critically ill. In the last decades, several important treatment modalities emerged that had a substantial impact on the mortality of prematurely born infants. However, there is a concomitant increase of neurobehavioral problems on long-term follow-up.

Neonatal Monitoring Technologies: Design for Integrated Solutions presents a unique integration of knowledge from multidisciplinary fields of engineering, industrial design, and medical science for the healthcare of a specific user group. This comprehensive collection will support audiences ranging from clinical and medical professionals, academic researchers and students, technical professionals and managers, and policymakers of different sectors.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Biomedical Sensors
  • Body area network for health care
  • Clinical signal extraction and analysis
  • Information and communication technology for medical applications
  • Neonatal intensive care
  • Parent child bonding
  • User centered design for neonatal monitoring
  • Vital sign monitoring
Reviews & Statements

This book is an example of good compilation of information useful for many different professional dealing day after day with this special group of patients. Moreover it presents new directions and possibilities that I am sure will result in sound and relevant monitoring techniques yielding helpful information to neonatologists, nurses and other professionals involved their everyday care and may well extend for home care needs. The cutting edge technologies and approaches for system integration presented in this book will inspire medical professionals, industrial designers, engineers and manufacturers to generate user-friendly neonatal monitoring solutions.

Wei Chen received her B. Eng. degree in 1999 and M. Eng. degree in 2002 on telecommunication systems and smart sensor systems, from school of electrical engineering, Xi’an Jiaotong University, China. She obtained her Ph.D. degree in 2007 on performance monitoring and impairment mitigation for optical communication systems, from the department of electrical and electronics engineering, the University of Melbourne, Australia. She worked at Bell Laboratories Germany, Alcatel-Lucent, Stuttgart, Germany as an intern in 2005 and she was a research assistant in 2007 at the Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering, University of Melbourne, Australia. Since July 2007, she has been an assistant professor in the Department of Industrial Design, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, where she is also the chair of theme Comfort and Bonding in Health Care. She is a member of IEEE and a member of IEEE/LEOS GOLD Committee. Her research interests include neonatal monitoring, medical monitoring system design using wearable sensors, sensor system for ambient intelligence, wireless body sensor networks, performance optimization, smart sensor systems, signal processing, optical and wireless telecommunications.
Sidarto Bambang Oetomo received his Medical Doctor degree in 1979 from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands and specialized in Pediatrics (registration as Pediatrician in 1983 and subsequently in Neonatology at the same institution. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1988 on Treatment of surfactant deficiency in preterm infants. He was research fellow at the Perinatal Research Laboratory at Harbor UCLA, Torrance California from 1988 to ‘89. In 1996 he was appointed as Professor of Pediatrics and Neonatology at the University of Groningen. The focus on his research was on neonatal lung disease, surfactant treatments and inflammation. In 2003 he accepted the position of consultant in Neonatology at the Máxima Medical Center, Veldhoven, The Netherlands. He was appointed as Professor at the Faculty of Industrial Design of the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2007. His main research interest is in the field of ambient intelligence and monitoring of vital functions of newborn infants using non-obtrusive technologies. He is member of the Dutch Pediatric Society, the European Society for Pediatric Research and the American Society of Pediatric Research.
Loe Feijs received his M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from Technische Hogeschool Eindhoven in 1979 and his Ph.D in computer science from Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e) in 1990. He has worked at CSELT (Turin), Philips Telecommunications Industry (Hilversum), AT&T-Philips Telecom, Philips Research, Eindhoven Embedded System Institute (EESI) and TU/e. He has been a full professor since 1994. From 1998 to 2001 he was scientific director of the Eindhoven Embedded Systems Institute, and from 2001 to 2006 he was vice-dean of the newly founded Industrial Design Department with the task of building up the research program. He is (co-)author of three books in the field of formal specification and design, as well as numerous articles, and has filed several patents. He is member of the editorial board of the international journal Science of Computer Programming and co-chair and coeditor of the DeSForM conference (Design and Semantics of Form and Motion).
