Patient Monitoring System
What is Patient Monitoring?
“Repeated or continuous observations or measurements of the patient, his or her physiological function, and the function of life support equipment, for the purpose of guiding management decisions, including when to make therapeutic interventions, and assessment of those interventions”
A patient monitor may not only alert caregivers to potentially Life-threatening events; many provide physiologic input data used to control directly connected life-support devices.
The heart patients or diabetic patients need to visit clinic often. In today’s fast moving world it is not feasible for the people to visit clinic regularly, also it is difficult for old persons to go to the clinic by their own. In such cases this system can be useful.
In this system the pulse rate and body temperature of the patient is monitored and display on LCD.
This system comprises of Microcontroller, LCD and single channel 8-bit ADC and Signal Conditioning interface. It also uses two sensors, LM35 temperature sensor and pulse rate sensor. Signal conditioning circuit will be made up of OPAMPS.
