Cardiovascular diseases have a very vital importance in human being’s life. Thus, measuring and processing the Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal has been a popular subject for years. In this study, physiological ECG data is measured using a single board computer card and e-health sensor platform. The e-Health Sensor Platform communicates with the single board computer, Raspberry Pi. ECG data is measured and saved as a text file to the SD-card of the Raspberry Pi. Then, this saved text file is transferred to Matlab in the computer environment. The ECG data is then processed to find the Heart Rate (HR) and Heart Rate Variability (HRV) which is used to diagnose some vital diseases. This study is the first step of patient monitoring system which we will realize in future studies.
