    Microcontroller based heart beat monitoring system

    Microcontroller based heart beat monitoring system

    The project is to monitor pulse rate, strength of the heart beats and assessment of the pulse conditions. The heart beats are to be sensed from wrist through a wrist band clip sensor. This information is to be displayed on LCD display

    The initial challange is to select a suitable sensor for pulse detection. Guidance is required in selecting the sensor.

    Thanking in anticipation,

    Microcontroller based heart beat monitoring system

    I think if you want it wrist mounted, you need to look for optical methods (LED light source & photodetector)

    The optical sensors monitor the finger tips. It seems difficult to monitor wrist using optical sensors. Is there a better option available which can provide more accuracy and reliablity ?

    It is not something I have done much work on (and then it was nearly 30 years ago!). The optical sensors are supposed to work by detecting the changing light levels due to the blood pulsing through the veins. There are plenty of veins on the underside of the wrist. I used a reflective opto for the work I did which worked fine although I don't remember trying it on the wrist.

    Re: Microcontroller based heart beat monitoring system

    you should go for standard device as in pic contact hospital bio medical repair technician for this type of sensor .i have completed heart beat monitoring system using standard (LED light source & photodetector) as in fig .don't laugh i have purchased this device from kabadi khana in rs 10.

    Microcontroller based heart beat monitoring system

    Hi santhoshaxl
    Could you provide me a circuit for a finger-tip sensor microcontroller-based heart rate monitor?
    Your help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance :)
    Cheers

    That circuit has been the subject of discussions on these forums because it doesn't work!

    Microcontroller based heart beat monitoring system

    i know that doesn't work some modifications you have to do that is the reference circuit
    did you see above pic those are real sensors and i used same circuit with some modification +same sensor

    I think a 'reference circuit' is one that DOES work, not one that doesn't!
