Abstract—Due the increasing of mobile devices usability, pervasive healthcare nowadays is becoming an emerging technology worldwide and has proven the efficiency to control, to assist and to save patient lives round-the-clock. In this article, we perform a comparison and a classification of various health care systems, platforms, applications and health care techniques depending on the patient state; from the assistance, control and prevention of the anomalies which arise on patient’s state, until the rescue action further to an emergence or a critical state. We have also included a comparative study of various techniques and application related to different context that allowed us to criticize each one to extract the points that have been neglected or poorly studied. As continuity to this work, we want to mention that this literature review has opened the door to our future work which is interested in setting up a new pervasive system exceeding all limits we talked about to make human’s life more secure.

Index Terms—Pervasive healthcare, emergency systems, prevention techniques.
