Abstract

Time constraint is one of the important issues for the patients suffering from heart diseases. Delay in getting treatment can be life threatening. Essential data collection requires a great deal of efforts and time to collect and analyze the information. Such processes are usually slow and may become error-prone if done in a hurry. This situation limits the clinical diagnostics and monitoring capabilities. This paper presents the development of a remote monitoring system for ECG signals. Proposed solution is based on the concept of cloud computing and wireless networks. Analog signal is acquired with the ADC unit of the PIC24 controller, this information in terms of ECG is transferred through ZigBee network connected to the cloud and finally examination and storing are carried out. The signals obtained from the patients can be monitored simultaneously by the experts. Cloud provides availability, reliability.
