According to different applications, the system has provided different functions. For mini-Holter, which is characteristic of long-term ECG monitor, the most com- mon forms of arrhythmia, such as bigeminy, premature, Bradycardia, and the frequency of occurrence are auto- analyzed by related algorithms. The abnormal ECG signals are labeled and presented to help the users locate the abnormality quickly. Also, the indexes of Heart Rate Variability (HRV)  of 5 minutes are presented to eva- luate the function of autonomic regulation of the heart. Some kinds of diseases such as congestive heart failure and diabetes can also be reflected from the change of HRV indexes. To realize the above functions, an automatic R-wave detection process based on threshold detection and mathematical morphology is developed on the collected ECG signals with a recognition rate of 99%. The arrhy- thmia phenomenon is recognized based the standard pre- sented in . Advice is given to users according to the abnormality occurred. In the future, the risk factor of some cardiovascular diseases will be researched and pre- sented based on long-term HRV indexes. Figure 4 depicts the function specifically for mini-Holter. A summary report presented in Figure 4(a) is given to remind the user of his health condition based the extracted features. The detail extracted information such as the abnormal ECG presented in Figure 4(b) and HRV indexes are presented to provide the basis for evaluation.

Jong Hyun Lim et al  proposed staff shortages and an increasingly aging population is straining the ability of emergency departments to provide high-quality care. Moreover, there is a growing concern about the ability of hospitals to provide effective care during disaster events. Tools that automate patient monitoring would greatly improve efficiency, quality of care, and the volume of patients treated. Towards this goal, they have developed MEDiSN, a wireless sensornetwork for monitoring patients’ vital signs in hospitals and disaster events. MEDiSN consists of Patient Monitors which are custom-built, patient-worn motes that sample, compress and secure medical data, and Relay Points that form a static multi-hop wireless backbone for carrying patient data. Moreover, MEDiSN includes a back-end server that persistently stores medical data and presents them to multiple GUI clients. MEDiSN’s heterogeneous architecture enables it to address the compound challenge of reliably delivering large volumes of data while meeting the application’s QoS requirements.

Background: Real-time monitoring of patients is considered as the key issues in managing health care system. Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN) is one of the wise health care monitoring systems holding applications in numerous fields like medical, wellness, military, sports and so forth. The correspondence standard for wireless body area networks is characterized by the IEEE 802.15.6 for the operation around the human body. In WBAN, network longevity is one noteworthy issue confronted following the constrained energy supply in body nodes. Methods : The primary goal of this work is to expand the network lifetime, so a Modified Position Aware algorithm is actualized where the spatial coordinates and battery status of every node is shared to all the nodes inside the network by incorporating the Probabilistic Energy Aware routing (PER), and Body Node Coordinator (BNC) is versatile in the network. Results : Simulation results demonstrates that the network lifetime is reliably improved. The placement of BNC using the Modified Position-Aware BNC Placement algorithm along with the PER protocol improves the network lifetime reliably.
Abstract: The system proposed in this article is to make Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) of people’s health condition based on remote health care monitoring system in their different activities. Because of several critical physiological parameters of human body, multi bodysensorhealth monitoring approach is vital. A health care monitoring system is displayed for detecting human physiological information. The system implementation consists of heart beat sensor, temperature sensor and pulse oxygen saturation level (SPO2) sensor. In this framework, gathered health information can be observed by utilizing both PC and cell phones. The real time result of the temperature sensor, heart beat sensor, SPO2 sensor to show on the ThingSpeak is tested. EDA analysis is done on measured data statistic to know the human activity for effective health care monitoring using IoT. The analyses are based on both theoretical approaches and experimental approaches according to the confirmation of recent research outcomes and real data from the hospital. The experimental studies have been carried out based on the idea of medical doctors in the hospital. The technology also confirms that the current research trends would be suitable for real world applications. The confirmation of medical doctors and suggestions on this research works were completed according to the standard of commercial products in the market.
Patients play the vital role in this section. To separate their condition differing sensors are put which will be the Temperature sensor, Vibration sensor, Eye-glint sensor, Heartbeat sensor and Blood Pressure sensor. Each sensor generate theirown straight forward/modernized qualities and these are urged to the PIC Micro- controller.
Wearable sensor hubs are those that measure physiological conditions. Prescribed sensors are those that measure the first signs beat, respiratory rate, and body temperature as these are the vital signs for assurance of fundamental wellbeing. Further sensors that could be actualised are pulse and blood oxygen sensors, as these parameters are regularly taken nearby the three vital signs. Extraordinary reason sensors, for example, blood glucose, fall discovery, and standard point sensors could likewise be actualized for frameworks focusing on a particular condition. The focal hub gets information from the sensor hubs. It forms this data, may execute some essential leadership, and after that advances the knowledge to an outside area.
Contribution: The telemonitoring concept can be used concept can be used via Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) that provide the home based mobile health monitoring. A wireless Body Area network (WBAN) in which having small sensor, this medical sensor is very intelligent that is collect the physiological parameter i.e. EKG (electrocardiogram), EEG (electroencephalography and the last one blood pressure can be monitored in this healthcareapplication. These sensors are wearable on the patient body that sensor collects the patient body that sensor collect the physiological parameter from patient and send to the coordinator is small mobile devices after that the coordinator sends this data through wireless network this can be send to the doctor clinic. For transferring this physiological parameter through wireless technology in WBAN is zigbee. This zigbee channel are overlap with WIFI channel and that have the ability to guaranteed deliver the physiological parameter such as zigbee channel are overlapped with WIFI channel to solve this problem the author developed the algorithm for controlling or reducing the load in the WIFI network then it guaranteed transfer the physiological parameter or signal. In this paper the author proposed the algorithm for control the load the network in zigbee based WBAN / WIFI co-existence environments. These sensor collects the data for Blood pressure and Blood temperature and sending this physiological parameter signal to coordinator and then transmitted to Health Telemonitoring System. These sensors are continuously monitoring the physiological parameter and doctor doesn’t have need to visit them in hospital. The physiological signal is two type first regularly collects the information and emergency signal are immediate transfer. In this paper signal traffic is reduced and continuous send the data to Health Monitoring System.
If the bp rate becomes greater than 145 and there is no one attending the call in family, then the server will contact the local physician. Furthermore, if the bp rate of the person cross 160 and still there is no response from the family member or the local physician then the BSN-Care server will inform an emergency unit of a healthcare center and securely provides the location of the person. Here, the response parameters “fr” (Family Response), “pr” (Physician Response), and “er” (Emergency Response) are the Boolean variables, which can be either true (t) or false (f). If the value of any response parameter is false, then the server repeats its action. For example, when the family response parameter “fr: f”, then the server repeatedly call his family members. Once, the family members of the concern person pick-up the call, then the value of the family response parameter (fr) will become true i.e. “fr: t”. Now, if “fr:f” and bp > 130 then the BSN-Care server will call the local physician. In case, when the physician also does not respond to the server‟s call, then the value of the physician response parameter “PR” will stay in false. In this regard, the server will repeatedly call both the family members and the physician. Unless any of the response parameter (FR, PR) value becomes true. Meanwhile, if “fr: f”, “pr: f” and bp >160, then the BSN-Care server immediately inform to the emergency unit of a healthcare center nearest to the concern person. Once the emergency unit responds, then the value of the emergency response parameter “ER” will become true i.e. “er: t”. It should be noted that, our BSN-Care system is not only designed for the patient, instead of that it can be useful for providing a decent quality of life for the aged people.
sensornetwork allows communication between invasive/implanted devices and base station. On the other hand, an on-bodysensornetwork allows communication between non-invasive/wearable devices and a coordinator. Now, our BSN-Care (Fig. 1) is a BSN architecture composed of wearable and implantable sensors. Each sensor node is integrated with biosensors such as Electrocardiogram (ECG), Electromyography (EMG), Electroencephalography (EEG), Blood Pressure (BP), etc. These sensors collect the physiological parameters and forward them to a coordinator called Local Processing Unit (LPU), which can be a portable device such as PDA, smart-phone etc. The LPU works as a router between the BSN nodes and the central server called BSN-Care server, using the wireless communication mediums such as mobile networks 3G/CDMA/GPRS. Besides, when the LPU detects any abnormalities then it provides immediate alert to the person that wearing the bio-sensors. For example, in general BP less than or equal to 120 is normal, when the BP of the person reaches say 125, the LPU will provide a buzzer sound.When BSN-Care server receives data of a person (who wearing several bio sensors) from LPU, then it feeds the BSN data into its database and analyzes those data.We can continuously monitor the patient when go out of hospital through mobile. We divide the all security requirements (mentioned above) into two parts: network security, and data security. Network security comprises authentication, anonymity, and secure localization. On the other hand, data security includes data privacy, data integrity. Now, to the best of the knowledge there is no two-party authentication protocol which can achieve all the aforesaid properties of the network security. Hence, in order to achieve all the network security requirements here we propose a lightweight anonymous authentication protocol. Subsequently, to accomplish all the data security requirements we adopt OCB authenticated encryption mode.
