One of the most widespread epidemics is ARDs. Because of a limited number of hospital beds and hospital staff, hospitals cannot provide sufficient service and support to large numbers of suspected ARD patients. Many patients who are suspected of having acquired ARD have normal vital signs and can be transferred to home care service. Due to the possible incidences of deaths, this paper is aimed to propose a suspected ARD patient monitoring and controlling system by using mobile technology to remotely monitor home care patients with suspected ARD in order to reduce the difficulties of caring for these patients.
