Recently, increasing heart failure patients due to the increase in elderly patients, high probability for these patients, the arrhythmia. The number of cardiac arrests in hospitals is also increasing, and mortality rates are more than twice as high as those transferred from general wards to the intensive care unit through the emergency room or other routes. Existing patient monitoring methods in hospitals are measured using 24-hour Holter monitoring. This method requires carrying the device and measuring up to 48 hours. Also, the patient’s activities are very uncomfortable because of the communication line. Currently, many hospitals use the Modified Early Warning Score (MEWS) as a standard for early detection of deterioration in general ward patients. However, the prediction rate is very low and there is little help. Many people are working hard to detect heart attacks early because computerized systems vary from hospital to hospital, it is difficult to apply the developed system to various hospital environments. This study discusses the factors and methods necessary to solve these problems.
