Abstract

Blood pressure meter is an essential instrument to determine our blood pressure status. Nowadays, there are various types of blood pressure meter available manufactured f r om various companies. In order to meet the demand on telemedicine and technology advancement, a new f o rm of blood pressure meter is desirable. This prototype of blood pressure meter is interfaced with a personal computer (PC) which able to simulate the measurement process in real time. The proposed system was named e-BPMS (Electronic Blood Pressure Measurement System) suggests the usage of both hardware and software in determining blood pressure reading. Hardware elements operate on oscillometric principle which gives the results in terms of systolic, diastolic and MAP (Mean Arterial Pressure). Furthermore, these results will be presented and simulated on the software end. e-BPMS graphical user interface (GUI) was developed by using Visual Basic 6.0 (VB6) language which highlights the user friendly attributes. Moreover, the simulated waveform will evaluate the blood pressure and gives beneficial advises in term of controlling blood pressure to be optimal. This application shows significant improvement on the overall performance and gives reliable results. The framework used to design e-BPMS is easy to understand and it can be extended further to endorse new application area.
