This paper describes the development of a wireless pulse and blood pressure monitoring system based on a microprocessor with low cost. It is aimed to receive blood pressure information (tension) through certain processes such as amplifying and filtering of the signal which is obtained by using BIOPAC SS19LA Blood Pressure Cuff and Transducer. With the designed prototype, it is possible to determine both systolic and diastolic pressure. Following preprocessing of the signal, the information of blood pressure and heart rate data of the patient is wirelessly transmitted to smartphone by using Bluetooth Module. The wireless system is used to transmit the measured data to a remote location. In this way, the biomedical parameters obtained from the patient can be instantly transmitted to any pre-paired smart phone and also recorded in the corresponding device.
