Abstract: Real-time effective ECG data collecting, transmitting, and monitoring system with feature extraction is a big challenge in biomedical signal processing. The electrocardiogram is a widely used testing system to measure and analyse coronary heart diseases, i.e., cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). Heart rate remote monitoring under the service provided by hospital equipment is the technology that currently needs to improve. IoT enabled medical device helps to achieve this efficiently. To design such systems energy-efficient communication protocol, data-transfer minimisation, assurance of delivery (security), heterogeneous natures of the environment are necessary considerations. This paper outlines a literature survey of three main important areas; 'real-time ECG monitoring using wearable sensors', 'feature extraction and classification method for real-time ECG monitoring', and 'secured IoT protocol for real-time ECG monitoring'.

Keywords: ECG; cardiovascular disease; CVD; tele-monitoring; real-time; tele-health; security; internet-of-things.
