A comparative study of the performance characteristics of five multiple access configurations for a wireless communication network is presented and evaluated within the context of the medical field of application. A universal variable has been defined for comparison between the alternative configurations, embodying the data rate, number of channels, power consumption, and bandwidth requirements. Special medical specifications have been accommodated, while the broader applications of this approach have been addressed. CDMA is indicated as the preferred method, over ALOHA, slotted ALOHA, CSMA, and polling.
