Nowadays, heart diseases are the major cause of death toll. Sometimes, a heart attack results in immediate death and in some case, patients need to be monitored after their first attack to reduce the risk of an attack. This paper is aimed to improve the patient monitoring with minimal number of staffs. In this paper, smart hand gloves are introduced to monitor the patient heart rate and the body temperature. Physiological health parameters are sensed which after collecting and processing, is displayed on the LCD screen. The system is also connected via IoT platform named Blynk, which assists the caretaker in remote monitoring. The data collected can be stored for future diagnostic purposes. Moreover, the system helps the patients to do basic activity on their own. It is equipped with buttons to enable the patient to communicate with the family members and doctors as well. The fitted buzzer will alert family members about emergency situations where the heart rate or body temperature is higher than normal range. Additionally, further advances can be made by real time camera setup to guard the patient's activity.
