Background: In developing countries, the healthcare system is facing numerous challenges. One of the major challenges faced by the healthcare system is that the healthcare service providers are meager and geographically far from the densely populated area.

Objective: To overcome the above challenge, the present research work proposes SHRMS (Smart Heart Rate Monitoring System) which provides the ad-hoc services to the patients who are in the transit mode in the emergency vehicle.

Method: A pulse sensor is attached to the patient’s fingertip to fetch the heart rate of the patient. The patient’s data is further transmitted to the microcontroller which in turn transmits the data to the ThingSpeak cloud service.

Result: SHRMS provides the real-time monitoring of the patient and helps to provide emergency aid as per the patient’s current situation.

Conclusion: This device is beneficial for developing countries where the healthcare service providers are very less and geographically scattered.

Keywords: Internet of Things, Heart Rate Monitoring System, pervasive healthcare, pulse sensor, real time monitoring, remote healthcare.
