在運動中發生心跳停止的機率為1/111996 人時，發生心肌梗塞之機率為1/292990 人時，
Although a lot of evidence and guidelines recommended that patients have to do the cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, but in fact, the actual ratio of domestic and foreign cardiac patients entering cardiac rehabilitation program is very low, usually less than one third. One of the main hindrances of patients participating cardiac rehabilitation program is insufficient number of medical institutions that can provide rehabilitation services. Patients usually can not perform exercise program under medical professionals monitoring without having to go far. This spatial and temporal difficulty led to the low rate of patients taking cardiac rehabilitation program. Besides, while patients with coronary heart disease are doing exercise, the probability of asystole is 1/111996; the probability of myocardial infarction is 1/292990; the probability of lethality is 1/783972. The risk of patients to do exercise is higher than healthy adult. Hence, this subproject will intend to develop a cardiopulmonary exercise care system and its Applications for Effectiveness Analysis of Health-related Physical Fitness to provide an instant ECG monitoring service through the integration of front-end wireless ECG measuring devices, expert system, and back-end tele-care platform. Many patients are inconvenient to go to large hospital regularly for cardiac rehabilitation training. This project will help them to exercise at home after once or twice rehabilitation training in clinic for each month and the medical professional will supervise remotely to see how much exercise they did. For that reason the project can help to break through spatial and temporal difficulty of having cardiac rehabilitation, so that cardiac rehabilitation can be extend to more patients. In addition to this, the traditional multi-channel ECG telemetry system which is currently used in cardiac rehabilitation department of many hospital costs over a million NT dollars. Economic factors will affect motivation of small and medium hospital to purchase the system. This tele-care system utilized Bluetooth wireless transmission can be concentrated on using in the cardiac rehabilitation area of medical institutions. Since existing computers and networks can be used to build the system without having to purchase new expensive mainframe, equipment budget will be much less than one million NT dollars. Consequently, this will increase the motivation of small and medium hospitals to purchase the system and further enhance the accessibility of cardiac rehabilitation to benefit cardiac patients. If patients have this tele-care system to use while they are doing exercise at home, the built-in heart rate and cardiac rhythm warning function will remind them to take a break, even to take medical treatment. More importantly, the ECG signal can be almost immediately (real time) uploaded by network to the chest pain unit of hospital. The cardiology expert will be aware of the warning at the first moment. This is an important protection to patients’ safety of doing rehabilitation sports at home.
