  •  Telemetry unit that provides all the electronics and accessories for resuscitation, monitoring, defibrillation, telemetry, and communication in a single lightweight package that is used to treat cardiac, trauma, and cardiovascular victims in and out of the ambulance 
  •  The unit contains a full radio system for voice and EKG transmission between the paramedics and hospital 
  •  Overview of the technological components of the unit 
  •  The unit has two batteries, one for the unit and the other for the defibrillator 
  •  Transmission to a medical center 
  •  Electrodes are attached to the patient, and the unit will begin an EKG 
  •  Taking blood pressure. This system also utilizes space technology: a small microphone in the blood pressure cup picks up beats that would not be audible in a noisy ambulance.

Produced for NASA by the Houston-based A-V Corporation, this 1970s industrial film explains how to give emergency resuscitation using an emergency kit and advanced telemetry. Telemetry is an automated communications process where health data is collected and transmitted to receiving units for monitoring. NASA originally developed the equipment to monitor the health of astronauts. Now outdated, this medical technology was highly innovative and groundbreaking at the time of introduction.
