An IoT Based Health Monitoring System to Tackle COVID-19 in a Contagious Ward of Hospital

Sk. Shariful Alam, Shakibul Islam, Mustahsin Farhan Chowdhury, Tanim Ahmed

Abstract: L: l: Email:l: Email:l: Regarding the highly contiguous novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), it is unsafe for health professionals, being involved in a hospital isolation ward. The healthcare workers, stationed in a contagious ward provide relentless monitoring of specific health parameters of those patients. The rate of contagion proportionately depends on the time spent by the health workers in an isolation ward. This challenging task is fairly manageable by employing promising Internet-of-Things (IoT) based autonomous robots (i.e. smart bots) thus reducing the hazards of contamination to health workers. In this research paper, we introduce a smart bot that can periodically measure the health parameters of COVID-19 patients, for instance, body temperature, oxygen saturation levels, blood pressure, respiration rate, heart rate, blood glucose level, etc. The proposed smart bot will transfer from one patient to another in a structured pattern and autonomously collect, forward, store the data of the patients for further analysis. The goal of the work is to involve a significantly inferior number of health workers in contagious wards to control contagion, thus creating stress-free environs for health workers. Moreover, smart bots will offer health professionals to pay attention to non-COVID-19 patients and make things easier for regular health check-ups of individuals in need.
