Implementation of Wireless Area Network for Patient Monitoring System


There are many critical cases in which the patients need continuous monitoring by the medical staff. Implementing wireless sensor network in medical field helps the medical staff to monitor the patients remotely. This system is designed to collect the patient’s physiological parameters, and store them in the database. The doctor monitors the patient continuously in real time. In this project the biomedical sensor nodes used are temperature and heart rate sensors; Arduino UNO is used as a microcontroller for data processing, and then the messages are transmitted to the base station via Bluetooth wireless technology. The Raspberry Pi is used as a system personal server. The results, reports and other information related to the patients are displayed in website pages which are suitable for the desktop, Personal Digital Assistance (PDA) and mobile devices.
