— This study presents a real-time remote monitoring system (RTRMS) for the temperature of patients admitted to hospitals. A GSM modem was interfaced with microcontroller PIC16F877A to alerts physicians in real time via short message service (SMS) in emergency cases when the temperature of a patient rises. A sleep/wake energy-efficient algorithm has been implemented inside the microcontroller to reduce the power consumption of GSM and microcontroller. The microcontroller and GSM modem can be in… CONTINUE READING
