Abstract

The emerging trend in wireless hospitals requires the development of bio-signal acquisition devices to be easily integrated into a single clinical routine. The wired devices used in hospitals and clinics, which makes setup very inconvenient, costly, and difficult to manage patients. It is crucial to develop and design a clinical diagnostic system that takes bio-signal from the body of the patient and transmits wirelessly to the physicians/hospital. In this paper, we have designed a novel portable system for ECG signal acquisition, processing, and wireless transmission using a ZigBee module. Our portable design enhances mobility, small in size, and very cheap for long term monitoring of cardiac patients. The results show that the ECG wave successfully transmitted to the physician, and heartbeat values are visible to the patient. Furthermore, the results of the ECG wave are unclear when the position of electrodes is dislocated.
