Abstract: The multi parameter monitoring is a medical equipment life supporting machine used extensively by patients in the Intensive Care Unit(ICU). The patients in the ICU ward needs special care than the other patients .So, it is a must to monitor the patients condition. But the doctors cannot always stay with the patient checking their condition. To overcome this problem, in this paper we developed a device called multi parameter monitoring which can continuously monitor patients vital science using the concept of INTERNET OF THINGS. This device consists of three sensors to monitor the patient. One sensor will be monitoring the patient's blood pressure level another one will be monitoring the amount of blood getting diluted and the third sensor will be monitoring the pulse rate. These sensors will be fixed with some value at the initial stage. So there will be no problem until the patient's condition is below that level. If the sensor detects the pulse rate or blood rate above or below the threshold value that has been set at the initial stage then it means the patient has gone into the abnormal condition. Once the sensor detects something abnormal in the patients condition then this information will be automatically sent to the micro controller which converts the analog signals into digital signals. Then this information will be sent to the doctors mobile phone in the form of a notification message and an alarm will be generated to alert the doctor. The information is transferred using the TCP/IP protocol. The alarm will be off only if the patients pulse rate becomes normal or nil. This could save more people and could easily drive the doctor's attention more easily. Since the concept of Internet of things is being used the transfer of data will be more faster and accurate. And it also can cover a larger area compared to the other existing system. This device is not so expensive so hence it could be used in every hospital to reduce the work of doctor and to care the patients in a more effective way.
