Continuous monitoring of internal bleeding in tissue is essential for assessment and treatment of medical conditions. In this study we present a new body sensor for diagnosis of internal tissue bleeding based on contact multi-frequency electromagnetic inductive measurements of the tissue. This contributes to the existing family of body network sensors. This sensor can be used in emergency medicine in the field, in a hospital, or during daily life for patients at risk of bleeding. Unlike other sensors that detect bleeding, this sensor is portable, low cost, non-invasive and does not require galvanic coupling between the electrode and the tissue under measurement. Our study includes description of the new body sensor, criteria for data processing, basic diagnostic algorithms and calibration techniques. We show feasibility of this new sensor with a sensor prototype and diagnosis of an experimental simulation of internal bleeding and hypoperfusion conditions in the brain.
