    Project NOAH - Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards

The Department of Science and Technology IX will be celebrating its annual Regional Science and Technology Week (RSTW) in Dipolog City this month.

The 3-day event will house a collection of S&T exhibits from different agencies and organizations working with the DOST.

Among these exhibits is the RxBox - a compact, easily operated, 6-part telemedicine device designed to provide better access to life-saving healthcare service in isolated and disadvantaged communities. The RxBox contains the following:

Blood pressure monitor – measures the patient’s blood pressure to detect cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels) problems especially hypertension, a disease which can also worsen other chronic lifestyle disease conditions.

Pulse oximeter –measures the level of oxygen in the patient’s blood and can help detect lung and cardiovascular problems – leading causes of death among Filipinos.

Electrocardiogram (ECG) – monitors the heart’s movement to pump blood throughout the body, helpful for those with acute and chronic heart problems, including pregnant mothers with cardiovascular problems.

 

Fetal heart monitor – measures the baby’s heart rate while in the womb, helping detect fetal distress at critical times of the pregnancy and delivery.

Maternal tocometer –measures the strength of a mother’s uterine contractions during labor and delivery, enabling early detection of distress to the mother and/or the baby.

Temperature sensor – measures a patient’s body temperature. It can help detect fever, a common medical sign of infection and other disease conditions.

The various monitors and sensors are captured through the RxBox'sbuilt-in medical sensors, and may be stored in an electronic medical record. The device is also capable of transmitting the recorded information via the internet to a clinical specialist in the Philippine General Hospital for expert advice.

To learn more about what the RxBox and the RSTW has in store for you, visit the Zamboanga del Norte Convention and Sports Center on July 25-27.

The event is open to all interested individuals (S&T enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, students, researchers, inventors, innovators, professionals and the general public). ADMISSION IS FREE.
