Abstract

This paper reports an instance of novel application of speech recognition applied to emergency and disaster medicine. The emergency medical system named "GEMSIS" (Gifu Emergency Medical Supporting Intelligent System) including the speech recognition application is also introduced in this paper. Speech recognition plays an important role in this system; when a paramedic team is sent to a disaster or accident site, a life-saving technician reports the situation using speech recognition in the site. The recognized information are shared by all hospitals and critical care centers. This system can solve the severe issue of the emergency medical care in which pre-hospital medical care is insufficient due to lack of information. A prototype application of speech recognition interface was constructed to evaluate a baseline performance and to make a discussion with medical doctors. Through this work, it is found that the applicable domain of speech processing technology can be extended.
