Abstract : The invention provides an ambulatory patient monitoring system consisting of analog and digital circuitry wherein a transponder device with sensors is positioned on the patient and is equipped to receive interrogating signals from a monitoring station and in response to the interrogating signals transmit the required information to give the condition of the particular function that is sensed by the sensing equipment. The transponder also transmits a signal for causing the monitoring equipment to transmit a different coded signal which will cause interrogation of the next patient in rotation. The patient interrogating and monitoring station which transmits the control signals also receives information back from the patient and provides a display and pulse readout. The received information may be monitored visually or by audio equipment.
