The Biosymtec Monitor

Originally conceived to be the key medical device in the Biosymtec Initiative, a program for governments needing to monitor for bioterrorist attacks and emerging infectious disease pandemics, the Biosymtec Monitor had to be fast, convenient and useable by medical personnel speaking any language.

The Biosymtec Monitor was later developed into a platform to monitor for a variety of pre-symptomatic signs including but not limited to: BMT, PEF, FEV1, FVC, HR and EKG.

Later versions may also monitor for nitric Oxide (NO), blood oxygen saturation percentage (SpO2), Respiration Rate (RR) and even blood glucose levels (BS).


" The key to preventing or mitigating an infectious disease epidemic is early detection, rapid response."

Dr. Lawrence C. Brilliant, Epidemiologist

Immediately upon waking, before rising, the Biosymtec Monitor's dual sensing probes are placed comfortably under the tongue, straddling the frenulum with the lips covering the mouthpiece.
Touching the button instantly acquires basal metabolic temperature (BMT) and other oral biometric data.

Upon rising, blowing through the Biosymtec Monitor acquires basal pulmonary data.

If the patient received the reading on the left, she can be assured there is no infection developing.   A consistent blue bar reading suggests low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).

If the patient received the reading on the right, it is highly likely a respiratory infection is developing.   Even though she may have no symptoms, the patient should immediately seek a medical diagnosis.

     

And also, through Bluetooth technology the user can see,
if she likes, a running two-lead EKG displayed on her
smartphone, while the button is held down and the device
remains in the mouth.

Competition

No competitor currently has the equivalent of the Biosymtec Monitor or the Biosymtec System. One competitor (on right) is planning on offering a device to acquire certain data from a patient's mouth, but they have no means of detecting infections early (i.e., in the incubation stage) as does the Biosymtec Monitor.

Regulatory Agencies (FDA, EU MDR, TPD, NMPA)

The Biosymtec Monitor is designed to be used exclusively in the home, upon waking, by the purchaser (never in the hospital or doctor's office).   The onboard software provides the purchaser with a graphic report indicating the likelihood of:

  1. developing infections,
  2. respiratory conditions and
  3. respiratory infections,
but the device itself does not diagnose.   We are told, the FDA will not regulate such a device.   The Biosymtec System graph is not expected to require 510K clearance.   On the other hand, the EKG feature may require 510K Clearance, however, many Predicate Devices are already on the market.


Early Detection, allows for Rapid Response, producing Better Outcomes
