The remote real-time patient monitoring system is a healthcare solution that uses ESP32 microcontroller and Blynk IoT cloud platform to monitor the vital signs of patients, including temperature, oxygen saturation, and heartbeat. The system also monitors the environmental factors surrounding the patient, such as temperature and humidity, and determines the GPS location of the patient. Additionally, the system includes an alarm device that alerts healthcare providers in case of emergency. In this paper we design system aims to provide continuous care and monitoring for patients, whether they are in hospitals, at home, or outside. By using Blynk IoT cloud platform, the system aims to reduce the percentage of medical errors and deaths by providing real-time monitoring of the patient's vital signs and environmental conditions, allowing healthcare providers to respond to emergencies quickly and efficiently. The IoT-based patient monitoring system consists of sensors that collect data on the patient's vital signs and environmental factors. The collected data is transmitted wirelessly to the Blynk IoT cloud platform, where it is processed and analyzed. Healthcare providers can access the data through the Blynk mobile app and receive alerts in case of any abnormalities or emergencies.
