Wrap up II – PhD scholarship in Early Warning of Acute Diseases from Portable Vital Signs Monitoring and -Interpretation

Wouhuu!!! Already two months before my graduation, I received some amazing job offers. Since I always wanted to combine medicine with technology, I applied and got a PhD scholarship in the field of Biomedical Engineering!

For the next 3 years, I’ll be working with monitoring and interpretation of physiological signals (such as heart rate, respiration rate, blood pressure etc.) to detect when a patients condition is deteriorating. The project will be executed in collaboration with Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Bispebjerg Hospital and [edited] a company that is developing a portable vital signs monitoring device.

Hopefully I will contribute with something that will save lives in the future 🙂

Birger’s ALS has reached …
