Medtronic announced a product upgrade for the LIFEPAK(R) 12 defibrillator/monitor called LIFENET BLUE. Equipped with Bluetooth(R) SIG technology, the medical device allows emergency medical service (EMS) teams to wirelessly transfer patient data from a LIFEPAK 12 to a tablet PC running LIFENET EMS electronic patient care report (ePCR) to provide a pre-hospital patient record.

Additionally, the unit is said to provide EMS teams the ability to wirelessly transmit patient data from a LIFEPAK 12 defibrillator/monitor via a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone to a remote LIFENET RS Receiving Station in a hospital emergency department.

LIFENET BLUE uses data encryption and frequency hopping to protect the confidentiality of vital patient information, said Robert White, president of Medtronic's Emergency Response Systems business unit. Medtronic first launched its medical informatics product LIFENET EMS in November 2003.
