Abstract: A distributed sensor based mobile/remote monitoring system for the management of various types of disease is disclosed. The system is capable of continuously monitoring a variety of parameters relating to the state of various diseases. The parameter monitoring can be continuous, periodic or episodic. A system to manage particular types of diseases can be defined by selecting appropriate parameters for that disease. A cardiac care product, based on the distributed sensor based mobile/remote monitoring system, is also disclosed. The product comprises a distributed sensor system including at least one patch for wirelessly monitoring a physiological parameter; and a biostrip for providing analysis of the blood of a person. The product further includes a mobile device for receiving signals from the distributed sensor system. The mobile device has one mechanism that includes a real-time wireless monitoring of the physiological parameter and a second mechanism that monitors the analysis of the blood.
