In this contemporary world where technology is advancing rapidly, design and development of a continuous remote ECG Monitoring System will be of immense help to modern healthcare. Deploying telemedicine principles, the developed system suggests a practical and feasible solution for continuously monitoring the postoperative conditions of cardiac patients especially the old age. The mobile phone technology which has gained tremendous popularity when used as an inter-link between the patient and the physician or the medical practitioner will be a familiar platform for both of them. Our system proposes the design of a real time, ECG monitoring system via a GSM platform which will include an alert system with a notification mechanism to alert the concern physician of the patient’s condition in case of any abnormalities.
