Leveraging persistent publish/subscribe messaging for medical device design
Tuesday, April 26, 2011
Medical devices must bring together a wide and often disparate array of hardware and software components. Persistent Publish/Subscribe (PPS) messaging offers versatile, easy-to-use and reliable messaging that simplifies system design and facilitates implementation.This webinar describes PPS messaging and compares it to other common messaging models.
We will also discuss how PPS messaging can be implemented in systems that collect, compile and display data from different diagnostic and monitoring devices (e.g. blood pressure monitor, spirometer, pulse oximeter, and ECG); and supports connectivity with portable devices (such as a tablet) and secure databases.
Key learning points include:
- Messaging models (synchronous, asynchronous)
- Persistent Publish/Subscribe messaging
- Medical device architecture with PPS
Estimated length: 1 hour, including Q&A
Who should attend: This webinar is designed for software engineers and designers whowill be designing and building medical devices of all kinds.
