Abstract

The traditional healthcare system faces new challenges in providing early stage diagnosis and personalized treatment for a large population of patients with chronic diseases. There are two key components in the pervasive health monitoring system: the BSN and the MBU. This chapter introduces following portable devices: breath analyzers: NO devices and metabolic analyzer, blood analyzers: glucose meter and blood ketone monitor and others: blood pressure meter, blood oxygen meter, heart rate monitor, and breath rate monitor. Wearable sensors are ideal candidates for the sensor node components because of their miniaturized size, fast response, continuous monitoring capability, wireless data transmission, and nonobstructive user experience. The data communication between the sensor node and the MBU gateway is typically within the house range. Transmission technologies like Bluetooth, Zigbee, and RFID are often used. MBU can be implemented on PDAs or mobile phones by running software applications.
