Abstract: Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death around the world. Telemedicine has a great impact in the cardiac monitoring of patients in remote environment. A wireless electrocardiograph monitoring system is implemented with Zigbee module for remote monitoring of cardiac patient. ECG Acquisition system is designed and the signals are plotted in LabVIEW. The Signal from ECG acquisition module is given to Zigbee module. The transmitted signals are then received by Zigbee Transceiver. TTL output from the receiver Zigbee module is converted to RS232 using MAX232 level converter. The serial data are then plotted in Laptop using LabVIEW.
