P11073-10428 - Health Informatics - Personal Health Device Communication - Device Specialization - Electronic Stethoscope
Project Details
Within the context of the ISO/IEEE 11073 family of standards for device communication, this standard establishes a normative definition of the communication between personal telehealth electronic stethoscope devices and managers (e.g. cell phones, personal computers, personal health appliances, set top boxes) in a manner that enables plug-and-play interoperability. It leverages appropriate portions of existing standards including ISO/IEEE 11073 terminology, information models, application profile standards, and transport standards. It specifies the use of specific term codes, formats, and behaviors in telehealth environments restricting optionality in base frameworks in favor of interoperability. This standard defines a common core of communication functionality for personal telehealth electronic stethoscopes. In this context, electronic stethoscopes are defined as electrically amplified devices used to capture and digitally communicate the sounds associated with the heart, arteries, and veins and other internal organs.
