In recent years, waiting time in hospitals, issue of emergency admissions and charge for medical treatment are more. It increases the workload of doctors as well as hospital staff. Managing the quality treatment providing to patient is issue in fitness care. To overcome this, the need of patient monitoring system arises. In this system human body parameters are monitored in different ways through various type of sensors, wearable electronic devices. The main aim of this technology is to continuously keep the track of patient’s physiological parameters and reflect the accurate records to the doctor personal computer or Smartphone. Now the days in hospitals, patient’s physiological parameters are constantly monitored by doctors or by different group of hospital paramedical staff for tracking continuous record of patient. It's a monotonous technique which not useful for nowadays. In this proposed system transmitting module continuously detects patient’s physiological parameter using the network of sensor and detectors. The zigbee module is used for transmitting and receiving the data and at last it displays on doctors monitor or cell phone. It also gives notifications about the critical condition of patient to the doctor’s smart phone through gsm module.
