Medical Sensors are used to diagnose, monitor, or treat diseases in the medical domain. The medical sensor node and the monitoring base station form a personal/family or ward wireless sensor network. Multiple such networks can create a community or entire hospital monitoring network, or even a larger range of remote medical monitoring systems. The monitoring center analyzes and processes the information and provides timely information feedback to the patient. The monitoring center can also use a variety of methods (Internet, mobile communication network, etc.) for remote data transmission and share information with other monitoring centers. The development and establishment of intelligent wards and community monitoring systems is the trend of medical development at home and abroad today.
