Abstract: As per the medical reports, each year 4 million newborns die within 28 days of birth and more suffer from disabilities, diseases, infections, and injuries. According to 2017 death rate, about 8,02,000 neonatal deaths are reported in India. The inability to detect any discomforts/criticalness that the babies can go through in the initial stages of life can lead to permanent disabilities/disorders and even death. The absolutely imperative approach to shrunken the mortality rate is to detect neonatal criticalness and give timely attention. Enabling an environment for newborn safety depends on the availability of adequate health-care facilities, equipment’s, medicines and emergency care when needed. Femone Health Monitoring System is developed with an aim to detect the difficulties faced by the babies and make it available to the user as well as doctors for easy diagnosis and treatment. The proposed technique is a wireless noninvasive system which monitors the vital physiological parameters of neonates including heart rate, oxygen level, body temperature, and wetness. Heart rate, oxygen level and body temperature are measured using the principle of photoplethysmography (PPG). The measured parameters are sent to an MQTT server and are published through the Femone app in real-time. The system also records the neonatal conditions in a day to day manner for future reference. A number of clinical trials were conducted in order to check the performance and for validation.
