Abstract

Integrating intelligent medical microsensors into a wireless communication networkmakes it possible to remotely collect physiological signals of a patient, release the patient from being tethered to monitoring medical instrumentations, and facilitate the patient’s early hospital discharge. This can further improve life quality by providing continuous observation without the need of
disrupting the patient’s normal life, thus reducing the risk of infection significantly, and decreasing the cost of the hospital andthe patient. This paper discusses the implementation issues, and describes the overall system architecture of our developed Bluetooth sensor network for patient monitoring and the corresponding heart activity sensors. It also presents our approach to developing
the intelligent physiological sensor nodes involving integration of Bluetooth radio technology, hardware and software organization,and our solutions for onboard signal processing.
