Hospitals of the 21st Century
Lionel Tarassenko, Professor of Electrical Engineering

Prof Lionel Tarassenko, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, University of Oxford delivers a lecture at the MPLS (Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences) Garden Party. He explains how he drew on his experience of working with Rolls Royce - designing systems to monitor jet engines on aircraft in real time - to improve patient monitoring in hospitals. Examples include using webcams to monitor breathing rates, and other sensory technologies which can detect incidents such as cardiac arrest up to 8 hours before onset, leading to dramatic reductions in mortality rates.
