Abstract

Non-contact, non-invasive monitoring of hemodynamic parameters would be ideal for medical monitoring in a variety of environments. Radio Frequency Impedance Interrogation (RFII) measures hemodynamic function via resonance frequency coupling to a hydrophilic protein molecule. While the application of this technology to hemodynamic monitoring has demonstrated initial success, this preliminary study examined the use of RFII for subject identification by waveform signal analysis, which would allow confirmation of the identity of a subject in an operational setting prior to rescue efforts. Preliminary results demonstrate an excellent recognition rate using the RFII signature and pattern classification. Each individual has a consistent pattern during the initial waveform identification period that is visually distinct from the other individuals in the data set. These results suggest that RFII may be of great utility in the pre-hospital triage setting for patient monitoring and for the rapid identification of subjects in the operational setting.
