Patient Monitoring System As An Aid To Assist The Doctors In Curing Diverse Ailments
In the field of human health, collecting real time data is vital. A system developed by us that can remotely monitor
heart rate and body temperature is presented in this research article. Wireless technology has emerged as one of the premium
technologies endowed with precision, time management, ease and confidence in biomedical engineering sector. Medical
devices, information technology and communication have already converged in providing an enabling potential platform in
collection, collation of data from distant places and dispensing the same to its destination for processing and to have clues
for curing the ailments by the doctor sitting in his chamber even at homes .Wireless based biomedical devices provide a
lot of advantage to the nurse as the vital signs of patient can be monitored from a distance continuously. Conventional
method for measuring heart beat and temperature is done at every few hours in the hospital by the nurses, however, it is very
tedious, exhausting and warrants systematic pressure measurement at regular time interval that keeps the nurse mentally
busy also. For enabling continuous monitoring we have conceptualized and implemented this novel design so that any
abnormality of the patient can be detected remotely by the doctor without his physical presence. The central objective of this
investigation is to provide an instant solution for monitoring patients for body temperature fluctuations and abnormal heart
beat rate over a continuous time period. The advantage of the system is effectiveness as preventive measures against febrile
seizures and other cardiac abnormal condition.
