Abstract: This paper describes the design of Embedded based preemies monitoring system with jaundice detection and therapy. It is a hybrid of the neonatal monitoring and photo radiation therapy system. It detects jaundice in newborns non-invasively by optical method and provides the required therapy by photo radiation. It provides an ideal environment for newborns needing special care and facilitates remote based temperature and respiration control. This system consists of two sections, a transmitter and a receiver section. ZigBee wireless protocol has been used. Transmitter part is used to set the room temperature and apnea values. Receiver part detects jaundice; provide single surface or double surface photo radiation treatment based on the level of jaundice. Monitors the room and baby temperature and controls the temperature by means of Heating and cooling mechanism and also monitors respiration rate. The system is inexpensive and reliable and can be used in hospitals, child care units etc
