ECG Analysis in the Cloud


Scientific Applications:
  • Now the cloud computing is getting involved in the scientific applications.
  • Because of this the resources and storage are got available infinitely at reasonable prices.
High Performance Computing:
  • Here this term represents that the computing with a high performance.
  • High performance in terms of resource availability ,quality of service, monitoring of service etc.
High Throughput Computing:
  • It means the users- requests will get processed within a span of time which is already decided by the cloud service providers.
Healthcare: Ecg Analysis in cloud computing:
  • Healthcare is a field or domain or area or a region where the information technology has found many of the applications.
  • These applications are getting involved to help business firms in assisting the scientists to develop solutions to prevent the diseases.
  • Due to the invention of internet or we can say due to the availability of internet cloud computing has came into the picture and represent itself  as a attractive option for developing health monitoring system.
  • Example of health monitoring system is ECG machine which is used to measure the Heart-Beat of Human body and the output is get printed on the graph paper.
  • The full form of ECG is Electrocardiogram.
  • The analysis of the shape is used to identify arrhythmias, and it is the most common way of detecting the heart diseases.
  • Here the meaning of arrhythmias means “not having a steady rhythm”, “an arrhythmic heartbeat” means a heart beat which is not in it’s rhythm.
  • Now we will let this concept enter into the cloud computing.
  • Cloud computing technologies allows the remote monitoring of a patient’s heart beat data.
  • Through this way the patient at risk can be constantly monitored without going to the hospital for ECG analysis.
  • At the same time the Doctor’s can instantly be notified with cases that need’s their attention.
  • Here in this fig there are different types of computing devices equipped with ECG sensors to constantly monitor the patient’s heart beat.
  • The respective information is transmitted to the patient’s mobile device that will immediately forwarded to the cloud- hosted web services for analysis.
  • The entire web services from the front end of a platform that is completely hosted in the cloud that consist of three layers:Saas,Paas,Iaas.
  • The first advantage is elasticity of the cloud infrastructure that can minimize and maximize according to the requests served.
  • Second advantage is that cloud computing technologies are now become easily accessible and also it promises to deliver the services with minimum time.
  • As a result the doctor’s has no need to invest in large computing infrastructures.
