The main aim of this project is to provide a medical monitoring for the user (patient or potential of patient) at any time, if there is any abnormal change of his/her pulse rate/temperature data
The purpose of this project is to maintain record of patient data and to give emergency alert if required.
In this project, we propose a remote medical monitoring system for pulse rate & temperature data. The system is composed of two parts, which are portable remote medical monitoring unit and the monitoring center.
The portable remote medical monitoring unit consists of microcontroller with the embedded operating system, a custom sensors board, and a GSM & Zigbee module capable of transmitting information to processing centers.
The monitoring center is composed of the monitoring station and the information processing system which realizes information management, real-time analysis, wireless transmission, a warning mechanism for emergency and diagnosis.
From the remote medical monitoring unit patient's pulse rate sensor is going to sense the pulse values particular person and temperature data is taken and given to the ADC.
ADC converts this analog data into digital format and sends to the controller, controller will process this data and transmits continuously to the monitoring center via xbee module and sends SMS through GSM to the care taker person/doctor
Now a day's every system is automated in order to face new challenges. In the present days Automated systems have less manual operations, flexibility, reliability and accurate. Due to this demand every field prefers automated control systems.
Especially in the field of electronics automated systems are giving good performance. And this is realized by making use of Zigbee technology for communication. Zigbee is new wireless technology guided by IEEE 802.15.4 Personal Area Network standard.
It is primarily designed for the wide ranging controlling applications and to replace the existing non-standard technologies. It currently operates in 868MHz band at a data rate of 20Kbps in Europe, 914MHz band at 40kbps in USA , and the 2.4GHz ISM bands Worldwide at a maximum data-rate of 250kbps. 2.4GHz ISM bands Worldwide at a maximum data-rate of 250kbps Hence by implementing this project we can monitor patients remotely and we can secure their lives by giving emergency alert.
