Wireless Body Area Network: Real-Time Health Monitoring System

  title={Wireless Body Area Network: Real-Time Health Monitoring System},
  author={Kalyani P. Wagh and Supriya Rajankar},
Wireless Body Area Sensor Networks (WBASN) is an forthcoming technology which utilizes wireless sensor nodes to implement real-time wearable health monitoring of patients. These sensor nodes can be worn externally or implanted inside the body to monitor multiple bio-parameters (such as blood oxygen saturation, blood pressure and heart activity) of multiple patients at a central location in the hospital. It is a radio frequency based wireless networking technology. Here patients’ health status… Expand
