Abstract

Throughout the decade, there were a number of attempts to develop medical information systems which are reliable, affordable and accessible over the entire hospital and beyond. The situation is made possible today with the development in the web-based technology, powerful personal computer (PC) technology, international standards and broadband telecommunication networks. These factors also have enabled data from a wide range of medical equipment, such as electronic stethoscope and ECG machine, to be connected into a common information environment. Research which aims to provide continuous monitoring of patients outside the hospital environment also needs to be developed. The potential applications will save lives, create valuable data for medical research, and cut the cost of medical services. One scenario is the monitoring of people who suffer from heart problems who are left alone at home without any supervision and may suffer an attack anytime. Sensor network, in the form of wireless biomedical sensor network (WBSN), as shown in Figure 1 [1], provides the technology that is a potential solution to this problem. WBSN composed of a number of biomedical sensor nodes and multi-hop networking capability that can be deployed for long term and continuous healthcare monitoring.
