Cloud application: ECG Analysis in the cloud

Scientific Applications:

  • Now the cloud computing is getting involved in the scientific applications.
  • Because of this the resources and storage are got available infinitely at reasonable prices.

High Performance Computing:

  • Here this term represents that the computing with a high performance.
  • High performance in terms of resource availability ,quality of service, monitoring of service etc.

High Throughput Computing:

  • It means the users- requests will get processed within a span of time which is already decided by the cloud service providers.

Healthcare: Ecg Analysis in cloud computing:

  • Healthcare is a field or domain or area or a region where the information technology has found many of the applications.
  • These applications are getting involved to help business firms in assisting the scientists to develop solutions to prevent the diseases.
  • Due to the invention of internet or we can say due to the availability of internet cloud computing has came into the picture and represent itself  as a attractive option for developing health monitoring system.
  • Example of health monitoring system is ECG machine which is used to measure the Heart-Beat of Human body and the output is get printed on the graph paper.
  • The full form of ECG is Electrocardiogram.
  • The analysis of the shape is used to identify arrhythmias, and it is the most common way of detecting the heart diseases.
  • Here the meaning of arrhythmias means “not having a steady rhythm”, “an arrhythmic heartbeat” means a heart beat which is not in it’s rhythm.
  • Now we will let this concept enter into the cloud computing.
  • Cloud computing technologies allows the remote monitoring of a patient’s heart beat data.
  • Through this way the patient at risk can be constantly monitored without going to the hospital for ECG analysis.
  • At the same time the Doctor’s can instantly be notified with cases that need’s their attention.
  • Here in this fig there are different types of computing devices equipped with ECG sensors to constantly monitor the patient’s heart beat.
  • The respective information is transmitted to the patient’s mobile device that will immediately forwarded to the cloud- hosted web services for analysis.
  • The entire web services from the front end of a platform that is completely hosted in the cloud that consist of three layers:Saas,Paas,Iaas.


  1. The first advantage is elasticity of the cloud infrastructure that can minimize and maximize according to the requests served.
  2. Second advantage is that cloud computing technologies are now become easily accessible and also it promises to deliver the services with minimum time.
  3. As a result the doctor’s has no need to invest in large computing infrastructures.
