Development of an Ambulatory Vital Sign Monitoring Device Using IOT: A Review (Published)

Everything in life today is advancing with the internet, and healthcare is not left behind. The latest advancement in internet is the Internet of Things (IoT), and most health researchers would say it is found most valuable in the healthcare industry. This work aims to review the internet of things to the ambulatory aspect of the healthcare industry for the continuous monitoring and onward transmission of physiological parameters of the heart rate, and temperature of ambulatory patients, and sending the values through a Wi-Fi module, to the cloud based server, where it is stored and can be accessed anytime by the physician and patients, by logging in their details to the online application. This does not only give the real time monitoring, but also the patient history, and it helps to save the time spent in the hospital, and the cumbersome tasks of a health practitioner performing the tests manually on the patients when they come to the hospital for checks.
