The healthcare system uses a smart healthcare monitoring system as it helps them efficiently monitor the health of the patients. 

Health is described as a complete state of physical, mental, and social well-being and not just a lack of disease. Health is a central aspect of the people's requirement of a better life. The global health crisis has created a dilemma due to some factors, like inadequate health care, large disparities between rural and urban areas, and doctors and nurses' unavailability at the most challenging time. 

In the last few years, IoT has made all objects internally connected, and it has been seen as the next technological breakthrough. Some IoT apps include smart health monitoring mechanisms, smart parking, smart home, smart city, smart climate, industrial sites, and agricultural fields.

The most comprehensive IoT application is in healthcare management, which offers monitoring services for health and environmental conditions. By using sensors and networks, IoT is connecting computers to the Internet. These connected components can be utilized on devices for health monitoring. The sensors used then forward the data to distant locations such as M2M, computer equipment, machines for people, mobile devices, or smartphones.

It is an easy, energy-efficient, much smarter, scalable, and interoperable way to monitor any health issue and improve treatment. Today's modern systems have a versatile interface, assistant devices, and mental health management to support a smart life for human beings.

The two most important indicators for human health are heart rate and body temperature. The heart rate is the number of heartbeats per minute, also known as the pulse rate. An increase in the blood flow volume may be used to calculate the pulse rate by measuring the pulses. For healthy people, the average heart rate varies between 60 and 100 beats per minute.

The average restful heart is approximately 70 bpm for adult males and 75 bpm for adult females. In comparison to males, females 12 years of age and above usually have faster heart rates. The body's temperature is essentially the body's heat, and the amount of heat radiated by the body is scientifically measured.

There are many deadly diseases in the medical field, such as heart disease, diabetes, breast cancer, liver disorder, and others, but the primary concern of the developed system is to track the basic signs of all the patient and the room environment of the patient.

In addition to the personalization of essential health-related requirements, the developed framework also offers a solution to maintaining a centralized patient database in hospitals using a web server. The gas sensor is used to detect an unforeseen event that correlates the output with the threshold and generates a PPM signal if the output value exceeds the threshold.
