In case of critically ill patient, it requires monitoring the patient in hospital for 24*7 bases so in order to overcome this problem, a system is designed with wireless physiological monitoring system. This paper is focused on monitoring of remote patients, after he/she is discharged from hospital. The PIC microcontroller based patient monitoring system offers a reliable, energy efficient and remote patient monitoring system using appropriate sensors and also the system able to send parameters of patient in real time. It enables the doctors to monitor patient’s parameters such as blood pressure, SpO2 and ECG in real time. Here the parameters of the patient are measured continuously and transmitted to authorized doctor through internet. Also the above parameters can be displayed as GUI using LabVIEW in patient side. This helps the patient to aware on their own health. Then the three parameters are provided dynamically to a web page in real time to be viewed by an authorized doctor, if anyone of the vital parameter goes out of normal range then an alert message as SMS is sent to the patient from the doctor side.
