It is undeniable that nowadays people are more aware of the health conditions. One of the most widely used methods to test the health conditions of an individual is to measure user blood pressure, oxygen level and heart rate. There is a huge market for non-invasive methods of measurement of these vital signs. The objective of this project is to design a algorithm in a well known NI platform (NI LabVIEW), which can easily be used with cheap, low powered and non-intrusive sensors. This project specifically deals with the data acquisition and signal conditioning of three vital signs: blood pressure, oxygen level and heart rate and also with the designing of sensors to acquire them and interfacing them with NI Data Acquisition System (DAQ). The theory, design procedures, experimental results and discussions of these systems are presented.
AIM AND OBJECTIVE
The aim of this project is to design a new algorithm to measure three biological parameters (Blood Pressure, Heart Rate & Pulse Oximetry SpO2) together using VI LabVIEW. It provides data acquisition system for collection, management, control and analysis of these parameters.
To obtain this objective four things are required to work properly which are given below:
1. To acquire vital signs (physiological parameters) using biosensors.
2. To interface the obtained data with NI DAQ System which converts it into digital format.
3. To link the DAQ System with NI LabVIEW and design an algorithm to measure real time data in graphical interface.
4. Finally, to design & develop a graphical user interface in LabVIEW to display the outputs.
