Blood pressure is one of the fundamental vital signs, and its measurement is of great importance to medical professionals and the general public alike. Nowadays, there are several types of blood pressure meter available manufactured from various companies. In order to meet the demand on telemedicine and technology advancement, a new form of blood pressure meter is desirable. This prototype of blood pressure meter is interfaced with a personal computer (PC) which able to simulate the measurement process in real time. The proposed system was named e-BPMS (Electronic Blood Pressure Measurement System) suggests the usage of both hardware and software in determining blood pressure reading. Hardware elements operate on oscillometric principle which gives the results in terms of systolic, diastolic and MAP (Mean Arterial Pressure). Furthermore, these results will be presented and simulated on the software. The e-BPMS interface was developed by using Visual Basic 6.0 language which highlights the user friendly attributes. Moreover, the simulated waveform will evaluate the blood pressure and gives the blood pressure value. This application shows significant improvement on the overall performance and gives reliable results. The framework used to design e-BPMS is easy to understand and it can be extended further to endorse new application area.
