© 2016 IEEE. In Ecuador, the ambulatory emergency system has a numbered paper handwriting information registry procedure, which means that the medical staff knows about the patient condition after his arrival to the health facility, in certain cases this could critically affect the quality of attention. This article details the proposal of a system which transmit detailed patient health status information and also his vital signs during the ambulance transfer, developing simultaneously a hardware and software adjusted to the requirements of the paramedics. The system is divided in three parts, firstly a prototype that consist in a touchscreen computer for data input, connected to a pulse oximeter sensor for live broadcast of pulse rate and oxygen saturation. In second place a management and database server software for emergency events registry. And finally an easy integration system monitoring app for mobile devices. The link of the ambulance to main server and medical entities is achieved through LTE network, with the appropriate data security measures. The project have the goal to actively support the emergency personal for the opportune attention of any trauma or pathology that a patient present.
