About this project

Inspiration

I was reading news when we noticed a survey depicting deaths per year so I decided to make something that would help the patients to detect a disturbance in heart's electrical activity and the patient can contact a doctor immediately. I did plenty of research about heart's electrical activity and finally came up with idea of an IOT based E.C.G.monitor that can be worn and is easily accessible by all. I hope that it will help doctors to take instant actions and avoid preventable deaths.

The Problem

World health organization says that an estimated of 17 million people die each year from myocardial infarction.

The number given in the above data can be reduced if people notice the disease in advance and take instant actions, but it cannot be detected until it is in its late stages and preventing it after that is very difficult.

The Solution

This device will help in vastly reducing the number of deaths from heart attack by showing the patient his/her live E.C.G. and if anything disruptive happens in the E.C.G. reading, the application will instantly notify the wearer and make a call to all the emergency contacts and will also call the ambulance in extreme situations.

The Placement

Here are some pictures that show the placement of the components

The Demonstration

The demonstration

In the above demonstration all the components are shown separately for better understanding of the functioning, but in the final model all of them will be on the vest which will be worn by the patient.

Code

The codeC/C++
void setup() {
  
  Serial.begin(9600);
  pinMode(5, INPUT); 
  pinMode(6, INPUT); 

}

void loop() {
  
  if((digitalRead(10) == 1)||(digitalRead(11) == 1)){
    Serial.println('!');
  }
  else{
   
      Serial.println(analogRead(A0));
  }

  delay(1);
}
