IOT Based Cardiac Rhythm Monitoring System Using Geolocation and Automation


Objectives: Numerous individuals among us lose their life to heart assault. Currently in India, the heart attack death rate is 34%. This is a result of their eating regimen, age, less physical movement, and numerous different components. The main cause of death during heart attack is not providing immediate help to the patient. By continuously monitoring the pulse rate and sweat of a patient, heart attack can be detected. The objective of this proposition is to develop a high-productivity and low cost gadget which measures the number of heart beats per minute of the patient and distinguishing the heart assault by putting sensors on any one of the fingers (except thumb due to absence of capillary tissues) or at any spot on the body that the pulse can be estimated from, and afterward showing the outcome on the serial monitor of the Arduino IDE.

Methods: To increase the accuracy of the system, a moisture sensor is used to detect sweat cold. If any abnormalities occur, the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) module is activated and it sends an alert message to the mobile numbers which are already provided in the Arduino code.

Findings: Using the Google Maps API the nearest hospital to the patient is located and the details are shared to the nearest ambulance and family members. The Electronic Health Records (EHR) is shared to the respective hospital before the arrival of the patient.

Novelty/improvements: The framework performs precise identification and insinuation of messages to the distinctive overseers of the patients. Numerous lives might be spared in the brief length by utilizing this created framework.

Keywords: Pulse Rate, BPM, Arduino, GSM, HER, Google Maps API.
