Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are gaining popularity in our day-to-day lives because of its wide range of applications in health care monitoring, industrial applications, control networks, environmental sensing, etc. In this paper, we present a brief review on wireless technologies for choosing better, faster and reliable data transmission of medical parameters in health care monitoring systems of WSN. The sensors, which can be either wearable over body or implanted or embedded inside the body, help to monitor the health condition of a person in wireless body area networks (WBANs). WBAN assist in facilitating the on-demand services for patients at home (out-patients) and in clinichospital (in-patients), by providing the agile and better results of physiological status to nursing stations or monitoring sites with efficient utilization of wireless network technologies.
