This paper describes work in progress regarding personalized heart monitoring using smart phones. Our research combines ubiquitous computing with mobile health technology. We use wireless sensors and smart phones to monitor the wellbeing of high risk cardiac patients. The smart phone analyses in real-time the ECG data and determines whether the person needs external help. Depending on the situation the smart phone can automatically alert pre assigned caregivers or call the ambulance. It is also used to give advice (e.g. exercise more) or to reassure the patient based on the sensors and environmental data.
