Abstract: The continuous monitoring of the vital signs and the purity of the environment for infants who are in a critical development period or they are represented as critical patients is an important issue for their safety whether at home or in the hospital. It is not easy to achieve these things by the mother or anyone else except by using sophisticated devices so that the continuous monitoring device is an absolute solution for this case. By using Embedded systems and wireless communications, the device can monitor infants heart rate, temperature, as well as smoke concentrations in the infants room and activating an alarm by sending a text message (SMS) to the parents or caregivers mobile under risk situation to increase the potential for them to initiate early intervention. The device consists of an Arduino Uno microcontroller, GSM interface, sensors to measure vital signs, a sound buzzer, and a rechargeable battery. Finally, the outputs of this device provide a real-time data monitoring, effective services, and excluding manual data collecting.
