                                                       There is always chance to improve any system as research &
                                                       development is an endless process. Our system is no exception
                                                       to this phenomenon.
                                                       The following measurements can be done in future

                                                                 WEBCAM technology can visualize patient situations
                                                       In future

                                                       We can design a system which works in two ways, that means
                                                       when the expert receives the data in the form of waveform, after
                                                       observing these waveforms the expert will suggest or prescribe

4.2 Result of Temp & HB Sensors:
                                                       From the above designed project I can conclude that we are able
                                                       to transmit the data which is sensed from ICU patient to the
                                                       server PC by establishing http communication to server via
                                                       GPRS .The data is transmitted to server in real time, but if there
                                                       is any network error or GPRS error then the data transmission
                                                       might be get delayed. We can also check the data transmission
                                                       and data downloading status on hyper terminal. So that we can
                                                       remove the error if any.
                                                       The leads of the ECG sensor must be stick properly to the
                                                       patient, which is nearest to the chest side of patient. So that we
                                                       get more and more correct ECG.

Description: Care of critically ill patient requires prompt & accurate decisions so that life-protecting & lifesaving therapy can be properly applied. Because of these requirements, ICUs have become widely established in hospitals. Difficulty found in most hospitals is that Expert has to frequently visit the patient & asses his/her condition by measuring different parameters. These systems works when there is any emergency by using different wireless technologies. This paper is mainly based on continuous monitoring aspect of ICU patients. I have designed, developed a reliable, energy efficient patient monitoring system. It is able to send parameters of patient in real time. It enables the doctors to monitor patients parameters (temp, heart beat , ECG) in real time using http protocol The timely manner of conveying real time monitored parameter to doctor is given highest priority. Hence On line Real time Health monitoring is becoming popular for the ICU patients.
