RFID Temperature Sensor Technology Applied to Pediatric Examination in Hong Kong Hospital

RFID Temperature Sensor Technology Applied to Pediatric Examination in Hong Kong Hospital


In hospitals, measuring body temperature for a patient, especially for children, is a relatively expensive task. Compared with adults, children have a higher risk of having a high fever and must perform multiple temperature measurements overnight. If the staff uses a hand-held thermometer, the child is likely to be awakened so that the child's fever risk increases. In order to ensure the quality of sleep for pediatric patients and ensure the frequency and accuracy of temperature measurement, Hong Kong Ren'an Hospital installed SmartSense, a radio frequency identification system provided by Cady Technology, a Singapore-based RFID company. SmartSense solutions include temperature-sensing RFID tags worn on the patient's abdomen, RFID readers installed on the wall, and SmartSense software for storing data.


The Ren'an Hospital in Hong Kong can accommodate a total of 400 beds and a pediatric ward can accommodate up to 54 patients. Previously, nurses used hand-held thermometers to monitor the temperature of each child. With the RFID system in place, not only can the patient's temperature data be automatically collected in real time, the temperature can exceed the set threshold, the system can automatically alarm, and can predict the temperature trend.


The Caddy TSS800 UHF RFID sensor is shaped like a disk and has a width of about 1 inch. It is attached to the patient's abdomen with medical tape. The temperature sensing device is powered by a lithium battery and measures temperature data every 30 seconds. The temperature and RFID encoded data are sent to the SmartSense enterprise management software through a wall mounted Cady SMN800 reader.


The RFID temperature sensor has a signal reading range of 10-20 meters. To cover the readable range of tags, the hospital installed a total of 27 RFID readers.
