Telemedicine services are increasingly utilized by patients, clinicians, and institutions. In this paper we describe the design and implementation of wireless-enabled telemedicine system using Bluetooth. Our proposed system will provide doctors with the ability to monitor, diagnose and help their patients in case of emergencies remotely over the Internet. The system is capable of receiving a serial stream of data and extracting relevant packets from the measurements of the patient's vital signs. The implemented software allows patients to easily access their doctors and to send their data via Internet. The system is fairly low-cost, fully functional and user friendly.
