For the improvement of the life-saving operation in an emergency medicine, a technique of the telemedicine using mobile communication was proposed. To obtain different kinds of physiological data from a patient in an ambulance, an optical biotelemetry technique was applied. Using an indirect light transmission, the wireless measurement became possible even in the moving car with the paramedic personnel working actively. A test system was developed and its fundamental characteristics were measured. Through the experiments in a moving car, the feasibility of the proposed technique was verified.
