Abstract : Human Health Monitoring has gained much importance in the recent years with the advent of the new and novel diseases. It has become very difficult to monitor the vital signs of humans at a regular basis due to the increasing population and the relative number of physicians to deal with enormous population. Our purpose is to design a device which measures the vital signs of humans and send them to the server for the physician for monitoring. This project will also send a message containing the location co-ordinates of the patient to the caregiver mobile number in the case of emergency. For this purpose, we will be using IoT platform namely ‘Blynk’ to show the vital signs of the patient for the physician to monitor them remotely. IoT is a technology which transforms the medical data into insights for smarter patient care. The sensors which we used are temperature sensor, SPO2 sensor, ECG sensor along with Arduino Nano. The Node-MCU will connect the micro-controller with the WIFI so that the data can be transferred to the IoT platform. The GPS and GSM modules will send a message containing the location coordinates to the care-giver mobile number in the case of emergency. The vital signs are successfully shown on the IoT server, OLED and a message is sent to the emergency staff or caretaker in the case the patient is in emergency. The monitoring system is successfully developed for the facilitation of the patient as well as the physician. The future work of this project will be giving the proper and minimum shape to the monitoring system so that it can become portable and increasing the accuracy of the sensors.
