Abstract : The Medical Data Electronics escort patient monitor, model E300A, was tested for environmental and electromagnetic interference/compatibility in the UH-60A helicopter under the U.S. Army Program for Testing and Evaluation of Equipment for Aeromedical Operations. The tests were conducted using current military and industrial standards and procedures for environmental tests and electromagnetic interference/compatibility and human factors. The Medical Data Electronics escort patient monitor, model E300A, did not perform properly in the vibration test, high temperature operation test, and low temperature operation test. Excess electromagnetic emissions and electromagnetic susceptibility make it ineligible for an airworthiness release. The unit is not considered compatible with the U.S. Army Medical Evacuation UH-60A Black Hawk
