Abstract

Electrocardiogram (ECG) gadgets measure the electrical activity of the heart muscle to decide heart conditions. ECG signal quality is a vital factor in detecting the abnormalities of the heart. The proposed model introduces a wireless Stethoscope and electrocardiogram system that can be used to record the sound of the chest organs and monitor the heart activity of the patient. The proposed system consists of two main components Sound Stethoscope and Electrocardiogram. Arduino UNO board is responsible for controlling and data processing and all the sensors are connected to Arduino UNO. Through the proposed system, we can monitor the heart activity including the Electrocardiogram (ECG), and record and hear the sound of the chest organs that is lungs, and heart. With the use of different sensors, it is possible to calculate the values precisely. The six analog pins of the Arduino UNO board can be used to connect the analog sensors. The measured values are then used for detecting any critical circumstance. On account of a critical circumstance, an alarm can be given as a message to the concerned physician for immediate assistance. Likewise, it is conceivable to monitor and hear heart and lungs activity remotely from anywhere using the internet. Information from sensors is transferred to the database repeatedly with no interference if the internet is accessible. In the proposed system a Wi-Fi module is used for interfacing Arduino UNO to the internet.
