The objective of this work is to design a non-intrusive, accurate, and low cost biomedical sensor interface for processing blood pressure and body temperature vital signs. The work purposely deals with the signal conditioning of two vital signs: blood pressure, and body temperature. Blood pressure uses the methodology of Photoplethysmography to continuously monitor the systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Body temperature is dealt with a LM35 sensor. We design the signal conditioning interface based on the type of sensor such as pressure and temperature sensor. We simulate the circuits in proteus software to verify their accuracy. We also simulate the temperature simulated results in MATLAB to verify the linearity of the temperature against the output voltage. Therefore, the design will be useful for the patient monitoring systems which use microcontroller for interpretation before sending them to the doctor through mobile phone network assisted by GSM/GPRS modem.
