Adesivos de biomonitorização sem fios e arquitetura de cama inteligente
: a evolução da hospitalização domiciliária

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The work presented in this thesis was developed during an internship at Glintt, as a result of a collaboration on the WoW project, aimed at improving the monitoring and care of patients in a hospital environment by proposing a new architecture in which hospital beds play a central role. This architecture involves the use of biometric monitoring stickers for patients, along with an intelligent Internet of Things (IoT) unit installed in hospital beds. This approach aims to enable continuous and accurate monitoring of patients' vital signs, such as heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and other relevant medical parameters. The IoT unit installed in hospital beds will collect and process data from patients' biometric monitoring stickers in real-time. This data will be sent to a Hospital Information System, allowing healthcare professionals to monitor patients remotely and take appropriate measures to improve treatment and care. Furthermore, the IoT unit can be programmed to send alerts to healthcare professionals when there are changes in patients' vital signs, enabling a faster and more effective response in emergency cases. This approach has the potential to improve the quality of healthcare by allowing more precise and continuous monitoring of patients and a faster response to changes in their health status. This will ensure that patient data is collected and processed efficiently and securely in both hospital and residential environments.
