AbstractThe present invention pertains to a system for monitoring the health condition of a patient, such as the condition of the patient's heart. The system comprises a patient station having means for monitoring a predetermined bodily function of the patient and a patient transmitter for transmitting information relating to the bodily function. The system is also comprised of a secondary system remote from the patient at the patient station having means for activating the patient station such that information relating to the monitored bodily function can be transmitted from the patient station to the secondary station. The secondary station is in communication with the patient station. The present invention also pertains to a method of monitoring the health condition of a patient. The method comprises the steps of providing the patient with a device for monitoring a predetermined bodily function of the patient at a patient station. Then there is the step of activating the patient station from the secondary station remote from the patient at the patient station such that information relating to the predetermined bodily function of the patient can be transmitted to the secondary station.
