In this paper the Internet was used as a media for transmission an ECG (Electro-
Cardio-gram) signal from a patient directly to a remotely reside doctor or consultant who
will respond via the same media directly. The ECG signal (at patient side) has been
compressed in a manner to achieve low bandwidth requirement by using Matlab
capabilities. Also, at consultant side the original signal is reconstructed using the same
capabilities of Matlab. The Internet works as the center of communication between the
two sides. A database was used to store the patient information which can be handled
easily by consultant. Respecting the internet no more than a simple rented web site was
required as a file storage shared between the consultant and patient. The results show
that the received signal at the doctor side after reconstruction had the complete and
compatible to the signal used for diagnosis.
