Abstract

Patient monitoring has advanced over the years, from bed side monitors in the hospital, to wearable devices that can monitor patients and communicate their data remotely to medical servers over wireless networks. It is a process that involves monitoring major vital signs of a patient, to check if their health is normal or deteriorating within a period of time. In a remote situation, vital signs information, can help health care providers to easily send help to patients when their health is at immediate risk. The problem with this kind of remote monitoring system is that most times the patients must be within a specified location to either monitor their health or receive emergency help. This paper presents a potential solution in the form of a global vital sign monitoring system and consists of two components to demonstrate the functionality; a wearable wireless monitoring device that records the temperature and pulse rate of the patient wearing it and a web application, which allows the patient and the emergency response unit to interact together over cellular network.
