Patient Monitoring based on Mobile Sensor Network

Eliasz Kańtoch

Abstract

Mobile sensor networks offer opportunities to monitor state of health without constraining the activities of a wearer. These mobile systems are now realizable due to miniaturization of integrated circuits, low power microcontrollers and wireless communications. This paper presents a design of mobile sensor network patient monitoring system based on several health status and movement monitoring sensors including ECG, GPS and accelerometer. Key functionalities of the software include calculating and displaying the values of heart rate variability parameters and movement patterns. Detection of QRS is based on Pan-Tompkins algorithm. Algorithms detect non-standard situation and in case of emergency sends an SMS to a selected number. System uses Android smartphone as a gateway to forward patient electronic health record to medical web server, where data are available via graphical web-based user interface.
