India as a developing country with a growing population has witnessed the overbearing burden of the population on the healthcare system and its workers. Research has reported that a ratio of 1:8 exists between caregivers and patients in health care facilities, interpreting that for a single patient there is only one Nurse available to render treatment to them. With the pandemic placing more load on the sector, this unbalanced ratio has been bridged by a brilliant idea belonging to one of PU’s innovators from the department of Electronics and Communication Engineering has come up with an eminent solution to address this issue. Abhishek Sharma has developed a project which is an IoT-based gauging thong that is designed to autonomously monitor a patient’s vital signs like temperature, blood pressure, and pulse along with ECG values and notifies the doctor of any concerning changes.
The world has become highly digitalized and this calls for a redesigning of the past methods to merge with the advancements in technology. Parul University being a pioneer of technological innovations, has paved an array of opportunities for its members and students. The University’s experts are modeling and training students to come up with innovative solutions to solve the challenges of today in the health sector.
In a nutshell, this smart idea will impact the lives of millions and it will set a seal on the early detection of abnormalities in the patient allowing fast action to be taken and further on saving the life. Nonetheless, this will assist in avoiding the hospitalization of capable patients and permit more beds to be allocated to Covid-19 patients. Gone are the days where patients need to travel long distances for checkups with their medical practitioners. This is a revolutionized approach that will save time, resources and prevent the spread of the virus. Nurses will effectively monitor more critical patients while they simultaneously care for outpatients at the comfort of their homes. Congratulations to this final-year student for taking a step towards creating a better future.
