Telemedicine applications are becoming very popular. The reason for this is the increasing population and insufficient personal capacity of hospitals. The use of telemedicine capabilities to manage chronically ill patients is becoming more and more clinically relevant and economically cost-effective. This paper presents own design a prototype telemedicine system, which provides human electrocardiogram (ECG) signals transferring via telephone network. System has properties, which covers the management of electronic records of patient and access to hospital's data base system. This designed system consists of an ECG amplifier, a communicator for data transferring, and automated software, which can receive and monitor ECG data. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
