This paper addresses a new technology in the field of bio medical sciences; it is a wireless patient monitoring system based on the ZIGBEE concept, as far doctor’s point of view it is a system which saves times by implementing multiple tasks at a time virtually rather than regular manual operations, due to the rapid advancement of wireless communications technologies in the field of medical sciences paved path for the invention of this wireless health care monitoring system, this system acts as an direct connection between doctor and the patient.
This ZIGBEE concept is derived from the embedded systems, ZIGBEE is a high level communication protocol by using small and low power radio based devices for critical latency devices, this new concept is highly reliable, with self healing phenomenon, with long battery life, multiple nodal accesses which can be globally implemented, now the main requirements for our wireless ZIGBEE monitoring systems are node architectures, Real-time data acquisition and analysis, Interoperability with reliable and robustness.
This system architecture consists of an automatic monitoring system for monitoring the varying physiological parameters of the patient such as body temperature, pulse rate and heart beat with recorded information, an communication system for the transfer of these parameters between the patient and the monitoring doctors, this system is provided with the body temperature sensors to sense the changing conditions of the body temperature, and it is connected to the GSM/GPRS or with the Land Line internet service to transmit signals, in the base station the relay senses the signals and transmits to the monitoring systems, the entire hardware and soft ware assembly with components specification was neatly explained in the block diagram section.
The results obtained in the verification experiments of this sample kit revealed that it is a better solution over the existing monitoring systems with better accuracy, proper security, speed and high flexibility, robust and ideal in meeting health care needs.
