Abstract: Wireless Body Area Sensor Network is one of the main application areas for ubiquitous computing. The potential for ubiquitous computing is evident in almost every aspect of our lives including the hospital, mergency and critical situations. The Wireless Body Area Sensor networks (WBASNs) is a wireless networks have enabled the design of low-cost, intelligent, tiny, and lightweight medical sensor nodes that can be placed on human body to monitor various physiological vital signs of patient for a long period of time and providing real-time feedback to the user and medical staff. In this paper, Developing a hardware which will sense heart rate, blood pressure, temperature of a person, and respiration of the person using gsm modem all information lively transmitted to gsm mobile. The attached sensors on patient’s body and they are able to sense the various heath parameters of patient such as heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, and respiration contains. These health parameters are then communicated to physician’s server. The physician holds various threshold values of the health parameters for each and every patient. This system can detect the abnormal conditions, issue an alarm to the patient and send a SMS to the physician.
