Abstract : The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about an unprecedented shift towards Telehealth since physicians are overwhelmed by the huge patient load in hospitals. This has forced policy makers to advise home quarantine for mild and moderate COVID patients. Additionally, even non-COVID patients with diabetes and cardiovascular or pulmonary diseases who do not need hospitalization are currently being monitored at home for any changes in their severity that may require a home to hospital transfer. Our research team has developed an Internet of Medical Things wearable Heart Lung Health monitor for patients with cardiovascular and pulmonary risk factors so as to enable hospitals to remotely track patient health status. Our system consists of a credit-card sized wearable 3-lead ECG device interfaced with smartphone that analyzes ECG and extracts heart and respiratory parameters, and transmits these to a dashboard for remote monitoring. We present the architecture, device, respiratory rate extraction algorithm, and its validation on 50 patients. Encouraged by these results we are readying deployment of our system for home monitoring of at-risk patients.
