Stress is a silent killer that forms part of everyday life of humans. Stress Overload has a lot of negative effects which include–hypertension, stroke, dysfunction of body systems, poor performance, heart failures and sudden death in some cases. Most people have stress without cognitive notice of being stressed up. Diagnosing stress has been one of the major issues in health sector because it has multiple symptoms. Biomedical Signal devices such as ECG(Electrocardiogram) are being used for the purpose of diagnosing stress and most available Computer Aided Diagnostic Systems for managing stress rely heavily on these devices which are not common especially in rural areas, difficult to handle and also very expensive. These among other reasons have led to many undiagnosed cases of stress. In this work, we have presented a simple effective Clinical Decision Support System to manage stress. The system carries out diagnosis of stress without the use of these expensive devices. This system is a product of consultation with medical experts on stress management and it is hopeful that this initiative will be of immense benefit to human race.
