9 pagesDate: January 29, 2020


 In the modern era, IoT has massive application domains in civil and military environments. IoT shelters critical infrastructures such as, defense, healthcare, energy, transportation, and manufacturing under its umbrella. With the advancement of technology and the convergence of multiple technologies, the conception of the Internet of Things (IoT) has evolved. IoT enables various systems to communicate with each other without human involvement. Intensive Care Units (ICU) are a critical domain of medical wards in hospitals, where patients suffering from drastic and fatal injuries and illnesses are treated. Once the patients are in the out-of-danger state, they are either discharged or admitted to a normal ward for further treatment. ICU is divergent in its explicit environment as compared to other healthcare bailiwicks because it includes extraordinary dependency and provisions, relentless care, close observation to rescue a life from an existential threat. This paper is comprised of a comprehensive study and analysis of modern IoT based patient monitoring techniques with their design and security issues in ICU. In the light of analysis, particular challenges in this domain are discovered, and some disadvantages and shortcomings of topical technologies are identified. In the consideration of those findings, several suggestions are proposed to improve system efficiency and response.
