Abstract

Healthcare and health of people is an important need of the human population. Heartrate and body temperature are two very important vitals related to the health of a person. The ability to monitor these two vital signs is key to ensure proper healthcare is delivered early. In this paper, a system to monitor heartrate and body temperature of a user and alert the user when these values are abnormal is proposed. Patient Medical Emergency Alert System (PMEAS) consists mainly of two components, a wearable hardware unit and an android application. The wearable unit contains sensors to monitor the heartrate and body temperature of the user, which are displayed on an LCD screen. These sensor values are transmitted to an android device via Bluetooth and are managed by the android application. An alert is sent to confidants via email or SMS when these values are abnormal. The application is also able to display the recorded values in the form of a graph to help determine the state of health of the user over a period of time.
