In this modem age, everything comes with wireless, portability and ease to use. Technological developments of wireless devices and systems can also be found in medical field. This has allowed physicians and healthcare providers to connect remotely with patients and give a proper care. Wireless technology in medical field has become readily apparent. E-health and m-health (using mobile devices) provide the most effective patient care and medicine dosage. Human prefer an easy way to use the

This paper proposes a blood pressure monitoring device with wireless system which links to computer and records the reading automatically. So, an automated blood pressure measuring device will be used in this project and XBee is chosen to the blood pressure measuring device wirelessly to the computer. Two XBee will be used in this project, one is to transmit and another one is to receive the data. Each XBee will be connected to a microcontroller buildin PIC to process the reading obtained from the blood pressure measuring device. The received blood pressure reading will be recorded. An interfacing system which is created by using Visual Basic will record the reading into a database and show the result to the users.
