Abstract

The advancement of technology along with the feature of sensor networks has increased the benefits of using remote health networks. Sensor networks designed with a sense of human health parameters have created a physical network. Nodes in the body network are directly connected to the human body and this requires a lot of care. Some health care programs require continuous work to collect patient data without user intervention at any time. Such applications require energy conservation of sensors in these networks, which are limited. Wireless sensor networks are used to monitor the status of patients with disabilities in the hospital, and to track and monitor the movement of specific patients. Wireless sensors can also monitor the performance of operating operators. These networks are used remotely, finding patients and doctors in a therapeutic setting, and managing drugs in a hospital. In this study, our focus will be on reviewing new methods of communication and transmission in the transmission of a WBSN sensor to monitor the vital symptoms of telemedicine patients in the field of electronic health systems. Evaluation and implementation of wireless sensor networks embedded in the body has also been studied in this study due to their importance in the field of human health, especially the control and detection of vital signs and the challenges ahead for their implementation. They will be analyzed.
