DESIGN OF A WIRELESS PULSE OXIMETER USING A MESH ZIGBEE SENSOR NETWORK

José M. Castillo, Joaquín Olivares, José M. Palomares

Abstract

This work describes a prototype to convert a conventional pulse oximeter into a wireless device. Samples have been taken from a commercial Nellcor DS-100A probe using an FPGA. This programmable device is integrated with an XBee wireless modem; using ZigBee protocol, data is sent through the wireless network to a central server. The system generates alarms to the medical staff when vital signals are critical. Data can be saved in a database allowing the review of monitored data furthermore, with these data, future research on medicine can be started.
