Abstract
In this paper, we propose a wireless stand-alone, embedded system design that integrates the
monitoring of three biomedical parameters into a single personal medical device. The three
parameters are: blood glucose level, heart rate, and pulse oximetry. The goal of this work is to build
a compact and cost-effective device capable of monitoring several medical parameters while
patients conduct their normal daily activities, and store these parameter readings in an embedded
system-based portable device. A communication protocol and patient monitoring software
application are developed to store data that can be later downloaded to a physician’s workstation for
analysis and diagnosis.
