Remote health monitoring using wearable sensors is an important research area involving several key steps – physiological parameter sensing and data acquisition, data analysis, data security, data transmission to caregivers, and clinical intervention, all of which play a significant role to form a closed loop system. Subject-specific behavioral and clinical traits, coupled with physiological differences across individuals necessitate a personalized healthcare delivery model, for round-the-clock monitoring within the home environment. Cardiovascular disease monitoring is an illustrative application domain where research has been instrumental in enabling a personalized closed loop monitoring system, which has been showcased in this book.
Health Monitoring Systems: An Enabling Technology for Patient Care provides a holistic overview of state-of-the-art monitoring systems facilitated by Internet of Things (IoT) technology. The book lists out the details on biomedical signal acquisition, processing and data security, the fundamental building blocks towards an ambulatory health monitoring infrastructure. The fundamentals have been complimented with other relevant topics including applications which provide an in-depth view on remote health monitoring systems.
This book serves as a beginner’s guide for engineering students of electrical and computer science, practicing engineers, researchers and scientists who are interested in having a overview of pervasive health monitoring systems using body-worn sensors, operating outside the hospital environment. It could also be recommended as a reference for a graduate or master’s level course on biomedical instrumentation and signal processing.
