This paper presents a system for the remote monitoring of a newborn infant physiological data. By providing a simple means for parents to enable monitoring, and physicians a simple mobile application to monitor live and historical physiological information, this system provides the insight once only possible in an Intensive Care Unit. The system utilizes a variety of connectivity means such as Wi-Fi and 3G to facilitate the communication between a multitude of industry standard vital sign monitor and a remote server. A system trial simulating the monitoring of a neonatal graduate infant has determined the system was able to successfully transmit 99.99% of data generated from the vital sign monitor.
