While all the organs of the human body works togeth er for the proper functioning of the entire human s ystem, the significant roles played by the heart, kidney and l iver in the lives of humans cannot be overemphasize d. The heart, kidney and liver shares one thing in common, namely: the blood from where several parameters that defines the sta te of human health can be deduced or inferred. This paper is on the compar ative study of the possible symptoms of impending h uman heart, kidney and liver failures based on blood samples that coul d be used to infer the state of human health with a view for the development of an online real-time electronic health (e-health) monitoring system. The comparative study considere d in this work identified 19 vital measurable blood-related parameters that c an be classified as follows: 1). Heart: heart beat, mean arterial blood pressure, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure; 2). Kidney: packed cell volume/blood cells, erythropoietin, electrolyte Na + , electrolyte Cl - , electrolyte Ca 2+ , vitamin D; and 3). Liver: Ceratine, glucose fasting, glucose random, urea, direct bilirubin, total bilirubim (direct and indir ect), ammonia level, alpha-feto protein. Detailed d iscussion on the functions, tests and diagnosis of each of heart, kidney and li ver as well as the causes, symptoms, failures, cons equences (acute or chronic adverse effects) are also presented. Finally, some preliminary medical advice and suggestions on possi ble ways to circumvent, reduce and/or manage any impending symptoms of fail ures of the heart, kidney and/or liver based on the nominal values as well as the minimum and maximum values of the menti oned 19 parameters are given.
