A realtime vital sign display

Vital signs, also known as vital functions, biometric data or biodata, was a term that referred to measurable medical indicators of one's health status. These could include, but were not limited to, brain activity, blood pressure, body temperature, circulation, immunity, metabolism, pulse, and respiration.

In 2153, the Arctic Archaeology Team collected biometric data of two Borg drones including respiration, pulse, cell rate, and the results of an EEG. This data was submitted to Starfleet Command and sent aboard Enterprise NX-01 shortly before the team was assimilated. Malcolm Reed was unable to make "heads or tails of it" while studying the data. (ENT: "Regeneration")

The same year, Captain Jonathan Archer sent Doctor Phlox biodata of the Vulcan crew aboard the Seleya to analyze their strange behavior. (ENT: "Impulse")

Shortly after arriving aboard the USS Enterprise in 2266, Dr. McCoy put Charles Evans through a test on an exercise table in sickbay. Evans' vital signs were displayed on a body function panel above the table during the test. (TOS: "Charlie X")

In 2364, Lieutenant Natasha Yar's vital signs, including blood pressure, pulse and respiration, were dropping rapidly after she was attacked by Armus on Vagra II. (TNG: "Skin of Evil")

When Dr. Katherine Pulaski examined a second Jean-Luc Picard from six hours in the future in 2365, she noted that his vital signs were distorted. (TNG: "Time Squared")

In 2369, the vital signs of Professor Galen were display on a monitor in sickbay as "realtime vital sign display". (TNG: "The Chase")
