Abstract


The project is about people suffering from apnea in which breathing stops due to some reasons. It is the device which will directly contact with nearest hospital in case of emergency on its own through cloud. Sleep apnea is a condition where people pause while breathing in their sleep; this can be a great concern for infants and premature babies. Current monitoring systems either required physical attachment to a user or may be unreliable. This project is meant to develop a device that can accurately detect breathing through sound and issue appropriate warnings upon its cessation. This device produced is meant to be a standalone device. Through this device we can detect the abnormal behavior of the patient and ask for necessary. This equipment is cheaper than CPAP and hence everyone can will afford it. This may transform into better device and can change perspective of not only taking the matter in our hands but if involving hospitals who can provide help without delay.
