Abstract: In present days, real-time monitoring of the physical condition of the patients is one of the major challenges faced by hospital authorities. In this paper, we have given a solution, to face this challenge. Here, we have implemented Patient monitoring system which will be one of the major improvements in the hospitals. All the hospitals today have the monitoring systems which are wired. Also human intervention is needed frequently for critical patients. In this paper we propose a PMS (Patient Monitoring System) which can be operated wirelessly. This wireless patient monitoring system in this paper measures heartbeat, body temperature and percentage of oxygen in blood. This paper discusses about the design and development of a low cost apparatus which uses GSM technology for monitoring the health condition of the patient.
