By adding a wireless sensor network into a health monitoring system, I have found a method by using the combination of ZigBee and wireless LAN architecture to realize a remote medical monitoring system. The system's nodes and base stations use the short range communication standard: 802.15.4 / ZigBee standard. This system can collect various information from patients, achieving the remote medical care at home. It can promptly reflect the patient's status to doctors and the patient's families as well as coping with possible emergency situations. Not only can this system obtains accurate measurements, but also it can relieve the work for patients travelling between hospitals and home. Meanwhile we can set up a wireless monitoring network in the hospital wards which will greatly facilitate the attendance of patients.
