Abstract:

This manual describes the features and functionality of the Creare Diver Health Monitoring System DHMS. The Creare DHMS is a body-worn sensor system for monitoring a divers physiologic condition, as well as of his environment. Currently, the DHMS consists of a single body-worn sensor that measures the divers electrocardiogram ECG. The DHMS sensor records the ECG and determines the divers current heart rate. The device logs the data for later retrieval and it also broadcasts the data in real time over a wireless link to a nearby computer. The use of the DHMS system is aimed at researchers performing experiments on divers. The system can be used wet or dry, at the surface or at depth. The DHMS is composed of three components 1 one or more body-worn sensors. 2 a general purpose PC running a custom-written application to control the sensors and to receive the data, and 3 a dock for recharging the body-worn sensors.
