Continuously monitoring pulse is very important for the pacemaker patients., and the continuously observing blood pressure is also a matter of concern for those who have hypertension, coronary heart disease, or other cardiovascular diseases, for example cardiac arrhythmia and hypertension. What we expect is not only to eliminate arrhythmia, also to treat patients as a whole of body. Therefore, how to keeping monitoring blood pressure and pulses rise to a very important issue. This research edits a wrist-able sphygmomanometer and pulsimeter combining with cell phone, to achieve wireless, continuous, and real-time observation, early detects any accident occurring from the patients with pacemaker implementation or with other cardiovascular complications
