Statement of Problem: Patient monitoring from a hospital has its own limitations. The main one is that there is a shortage in number of intensive care unit(ICU) beds in hospitals and a handful of people to be monitored. Methodology of Solution: This paper tries to solve the problem of shortage in number of ICU beds by using a home patient monitoring device dependent on general packet radio service (GPRS). The patient monitoring device actualizes the utilization of the GPRS system to send essential signs information to a hospital server. This empowers a patient to be checked in the solace of his or her home. The information is sent utilizing the packet transmission strategy where the signal is separated into packets of information for transmission. Results: The simulation results demonstrate the impact of the transmission channel on the transmitted signal by presenting an error rate.
