Abstract

In Early 2004 Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever become an epidemic with big number of cases. Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is a disease caused by dengue virus that is transmitted through the mosquito bite of Aedes aegypti. It is quite difficult to determine the diagnosis due to the similarity of symptoms with another disease and the status of asymptomatic of the disease. People often came to hospital in the late condition and it increase the mortality of Dengue because the lack of monitoring 2 main indicators of dengue which are thrombocyte level and haematocrite level. In dengue, it needed to check the level of trombocyte and haematocrite oftenly. It is not suitable for eldery man that have collapse vessels and kids that have needle syndrome. The purpose of this research is designing medical equipment to detect level of hematocrit non invasively. Measurable magnitude by the instrumentation is non-absorb intensity electromagnetic waves emitted by transmitter captured by receiver. The signal then converted to electrical signal, which is the levels of hematocrite.
