Title: Arduino Based Heart Rate Monitoring And Heart Attack Detection System
Author: Ali, Noon Mohamed Mustafa
Abstract: In this thesis, we presented the design and development of an integrated device for measuring heart rate using Pulse sensor to improve estimating the heart rate. As heart related diseases are increasing day by day, the need for an accurate and affordable heart rate measuring device or heart monitor is essential to ensure quality of health. However, most heart rate measuring tools and environments are expensive and do not follow ergonomics. Our proposed Heart Rate Measuring device is economical and user friendly based on the principle of photo- phlethysmography. It measures the change in volume of blood through any organ of the body which causes a change in the light intensity through that organ. The goal of this thesis is design High-efficiency and low-cost device which measures the heart rate of the patient and detecting the heart attack by putting sensors on one of the fingers or at any spot on the body that the heart rate can be measured from, and then displaying the result on the serial monitor of the arduino programmer. Miniaturized heart rates monitor system based on Arduino nano microcontroller. It offers the advantage of portability over tape-based recording systems. The thesis explains how a Arduino nano microcontroller can be used to analyze heart beat rate signals in real-time. the Hardware and software design are oriented towards Arduino nano-based system, hence minimizing the size. The important feature of this project is the use PPG algorithm to calculate heart rate on real-time. It then processes to provide the information of heart rates and notified the user if the heart rate exceed the maximum allowable. Qualitative and quantitative performance evaluation of the device on real signals shows accuracy in heart rate estimation, even under intense of physical activity. We compared the performance of pulse sensor with digital heart rate monitor. The results showed that the error rate of the pulse sensor and temperature sensor are negligible.
