A distributed healthcare monitoring system prototype for clinical and trauma patients, is to be developed, using wireless sensor network node. The proposed system aims to measure various vital physiological health parameters like ECG and body temperature, of patients and elderly persons and transfer his/her health status wirelessly in Ad-hoc network, to remote base station which is connected to a hospital's main Server, using wireless sensor node. Main server shows information of sensor node which transfer presently vital data and if an abnormal ECG activity is encounter, the server will store 1 minute of the ECG-recording and then transmit the recording to PDA and standard PC as a Clinical Diagnostic Station(CDS). Server can calculate Heart Rate(HR) and variation in the R-R interval and if desired by doctor, averaged values together with maximum and minimum values are calculated every on minute.
