Choosing an RTOS for
Remote-Care Medical Devices
Three trends are driving a dramatic increase in the number and diversity of remote-care medical devices entering the market: aging populations in industrialized countries, pressures to reduce health care costs, and a new focus on primary and secondary care. This paper is about choosing an embedded OS for remote-care medical devices. It provides a high-level “shopping list” of requirements that device manufacturers can use to evaluate OSs they are considering.

Medical implantable devices like pacemakers, ICDs and leads are progressively becoming more compact and lighter. Some of the components used for hermetic and structural welding are still large and thick enough for conventional Nd:YAG pulsed lasers. However, some of the welded components, particularly used for electrical connections, have become so small and thin that the conventional Nd:YAG laser performs like a big and rough tool. Properly selected laser beam characteristics, such as diameter of the beam and energy distribution within the focused spot in welding area, may significantly improve welding process increasing yield during production.
