Electrocardiogram (ECG) plays vital role in diagnosing large number of diseases and disorders related to heart. ECG devices are able to perform multiple parameters by analyzing the patterns of bio-signals. The state-of-art ECG machine uses electrodes attached to human body using gel. The whole process agitates the patient resulting in disturbed ECG report by producing noise due to movement, imbalanced electrodes, and heavy objects. The proposed ECG system is portable finger-based system that generates ECG report in minimum time duration with providing ease to users. The system replaces disturbing electrodes by a single bio signal identification sensor. It takes signals from one finger of patient through sensor in 7 seconds. The sensor is followed up by combination of various capacitors and buffers in order to enhance signals. The signals are then transferred to software using USB port for several medical required filtrations and overall noise removal. The result of the process is an ECG signal representing heart condition of patient. The results can be stored for future medical investigations like improvement or decline in health of patient. The proposed prototype is deployed in several hospitals for testing. The system evaluated through comparison method with current system and results are satisfactory.
