Blood transfusion is identified as one of the eight key life-saving functions in comprehensive emergency obstetric care. One of the major cause of maternal death is due to hemorrhage and blood should be available to manage these cases. Poor availability of blood in rural areas should be addressed to eliminate avoidable maternal mortality and morbidity. The solution is prepared to address current bottlenecks in the blood supply chain.
Bagmo has developed a blood bag monitoring device which can tell the temperature of each blood bag while it is transported and stored. The device will be able to reduce wastage at blood storage centers. The device will also reduce effort in logistics and communication issues. This is a hardware product with connectivity to cloud. The same technology can be used in other sectors like Food, Pharma etc.
