Toxicology and WMD Countermeasures
used in farming and pest control and nerve gases used in warfare,
poison the body's mechanism of removing excess chemicals used
in nerve-tissue communications. These special body chemicals
are referred to as neurotransmitters. Acetylcholine is used
to generate cardiac vagal tone and is particularly affected
by organophosphates and nerve gases. Accumulation of acetylcholine
due to organophosphate or nerve gas poisoning increases cardiac
vagal tone to very high levels.
The NeuroScope can be used to quantify the effects of
these poisons and to monitor the recovery from them in real-time.
This will provide for the first time, a technology for real-time
monitoring of human responses to the toxic agents mentioned
above in the field or in the sites of operation.
Since our technology has network capability using both wired
and wireless LAN, it can also be used for information gathering
regarding chemical attacks and also for telemedicine among
field hospitals, base camps and command posts within a secure
