Abstract

This paper presents the implementation details of a cloud-based system for real-time, remote physiological monitoring of infants born with a single functioning ventricle. These children require staged surgery to create a channel for deoxygenated blood; however inter-stage mortality between stages due to oxygen desaturation is a widely recognized problem. Our proposed system consists of 1) a mobile application connected to Bluetooth sensors monitoring heart rate and blood oxygen saturation level, 2) a cloud-based server that stores the data transmitted from the smartphone, 3) a web-interface that presents the collected data to the clinician for analysis and 4) an alert generator that sends text messages in case of an emergency. This paper provides an overall view of the functionality of the system, its implementation details with commercial off-the-shelf sensors and a popular cloud server as well as performance test results of the system.
