WBANs for Patient Monitoring Systems: A Survey and Outlook
Nikhil Walke | R.K. Bedi
Abstract: The WBAN has become one of the most researched areas for developing more reliable, accurate and efficient patient monitoring systems. Many researchers have proposed different approaches and schemes for building such monitoring systems. But the reliable transmission, latency, fast path recovery and re-routing are still some of the major issues that occurs in WBANs. This paper presents the survey of some proposed methodologies used for building wireless patient monitoring systems, the WBANs for patient monitoring systems implemented with different approaches, their advantages and limitations. It also discusses about some protocols which have been devised to increase the reliability of the WSN systems.
Keywords: Wireless Body Area Networks, latency, patient monitoring systems, reliable transmission, re-routing
