Medical Embedded System

What is an example of a medical embedded system? 

 

Heart lung pump is a great example of medical embedded system.  This pump is critical for patients with poor lungs or patients undergoing heart surgery.  The standalone device monitors blood oxygen content, pulse, blood pressure and other vitals.  Based on the medical condition, it provides sufficient oxygenation to the blood and delivers the needed oxygen.  The device operates pumps, control valves, and sensors to accomplish the task.
