Multi-Parameter Cardiac Remote Monitoring System based on Android
A novel multi-parameter cardiac remote monitoring system based on Android is presented and demonstrated for overall health surveillance of Electrocardiograph (ECG), heart sound and pulse compared to the shortcomings of the monitoring through single ECG. This system is composed of a multi-channel physiological parameter acquisition unit, an Android terminal and a cloud server. Several key technologies such as integration of multi-parameter acquisition, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) data communication, Android terminal waveform drawing and data management, and cloud-based data storage are researched. Experimental results show that the aforementioned three physiological parameters can be gathered simultaneously at the rate of 1 KHz and the BLE communication, waveform drawing and data management in mobile terminal can be achieved. The system we presented has the merits of high Signal-to-Noise Ratio, comprehensive heart monitoring data and convenience for using and carrying, which provides an important reference for telemedicine and mobile health, and lays a good foundation for the integration of multi-parameter cardiac care.
