Real-Time Communication Network Using Firebase Cloud IoT Platform for ECMO Simulation
Disi, M. A.
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a high-complexity life-saving procedure where quick and coordinated interventions are required to avoid mortality. ECMO perfusionists and nurses must be well trained to respond to time-critical emergencies, using simulation-based education, which currently rely on rudimental ECMO simulation processes. Implementing a simulation system for such complex medical procedure necessitates a robust, well-coordinated underlying architecture. In this paper, the use of Internet of Things (IoT) service Firebase is presented in the case study of an ECMO simulator. Features of the proposed solution are discussed and justified in the given use case including latency, hardware compatibility, and data management. For the used case of ECMO simulation system, Firebase proved to be a proper communication solution that satisfied the urgent nature of medical training.
