HEART ATTACK DETECTION

COMPONENTS :
1.Sensor:LED and LDR
2.Amplifier :Two Op amps
3.Filter : Low pass Filter
4.Microcontroller : Atmega
5.Display : LCD

PROCESS:
Beat Rate
1.Photo-Transistor(PT) and Led on the same side
PT detects this light beam and measures the change of blood volume
through the finger artery.
If the number of pulse counts in time T is n, then the heart rate per minute is given by N,
where, N = 60n/T
2.AMPLIFICATION
Two op amps for this.(Gain and cut off frequency is set)
3.FILTERING
Low pass filter here.
4.MICROCONTROLLER
It counts the number of pulses over a fixed time interval
Make it robust.Get the average.
5.DISPLAY
The calculated best rate is displayed.
