Introducción: Los desarrollos tecnológicos que se implementan en plataformas de código abierto (Open Source) han crecido considerablemente en la última década, ofreciendo soluciones fáciles de desarrollar, flexibles y de bajo costo. En el caso de las aplicaciones biomédicas desarrolladas sobre plataformas Open Source, el monitoreo de la frecuencia cardiaca es una de las aplicaciones con mayor desarrollo.

Objetivo: en este documento se presenta una revisión sistemática de la literatura, en la que se analizan los desarrollos actuales en Sistemas de Monitoreo de Frecuencia Cardiaca (SMFC) sobre plataformas Open Source. Se identifican los desarrollos más significativos, y las plataformas comúnmente usadas.

Metodología: Se realiza una revisión sistemática de la literatura de tipo Cochrane.

Resultados: Se presentan las tendencias en investigación acerca de los sistemas de monitoreo de frecuencia cardiaca usando plataformas Open Source.

Conclusiones: existe un gran desarrollo de las aplicaciones que implican el monitoreo de la frecuencia cardiaca. Sin embargo, su estudio no está dado por terminado. Puesto que, con la gran cantidad de datos disponibles gracias a esas aplicaciones, es posible aún, profundizar en la implementación de estudios estadísticos.
