The Bottom Station system is designed to get and provide the data sent in the User Nodes to some nearby hospital’s patient monitoring computer via a WIFI connection. There's little existing technology allowing hospitals to watch DME-dependent patients without needing the current infrastructure, like the land lines, the cell towers, Ethernet cable or even the Internet. Electricity-operated durable medical equipment (DME), for example ventilators, and patient monitoring products, are existence-supporting machines used extensively by patients in your own home. While convenient and economical, use at home of DME is prone to power outages, particularly the ones brought on by disasters that frequently exist in large area as well as for a lengthy duration. Reported here in is really a novel wireless system that employees an invisible random network to automatically report the patient’s information and placement, and the DME information and standing to some nearby hospital when power outage is detected. This technique includes a double edged sword: hospital-based receiving device, known as the bottom Station node, and multiple transmitting products, known as User Nodes, each connected to the DME at patients’ homes. The Bottom Station and User Nodes is each constructed with an ARM microcontroller. Furthermore, each User Node consists of a standing Brought and a battery connected with a charge controller. User Nodes are designed and monitor the DME status using WIFI, Transmit the information and relay information towards the Base Station with the radio random network the nodes form in the case of the power outage. This technique works without depending on the infrastructure, and enables hospital staff to understand the information and locations of DME as well as their customers and provide help needed during power outages.
