Abstract: In this fast pace of life, it is difficult for people to be constantly available for their near ones who might need them while they are suffering from a disease or physical disorder. So also constant monitoring of the patientís body parameters such as temperature, pulse rate, sugar level etc. becomes difficult. Hence to remove human error and to lessen the burden of monitoring patientís health from doctorís head, this paper presents the methodology for monitoring patients remotely using GSM network and Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) technology. Patient monitoring systems measure physiological characteristics either continuously or at regular intervals of time.

Keywords: GSM network, Patient Monitoring System, VLSI.
