In a hospital health care monitoring system it is necessary to constantly monitor the patient’s physiological
parameters. For example a pregnant woman parameters such as blood pressure (BP) and heart rate of the woman and
heart rate and movements of fetal to control their health condition. This paper presents a monitoring system that has
the capability to monitor physiological parameters from multiple patient bodies. In the proposed system, a coordinator
node has attached on patient body to collect all the signals from the wireless sensors and sends them to the base
station. The attached sensors on patient’s body form a wireless body sensor network (WBSN) and they are able to
sense the heart rate, blood pressure and so on. This system can detect the abnormal conditions, issue an alarm to the
patient and send a SMS/E-mail to the physician. Also, the proposed system consists of several wireless relay nodes
which are responsible for relaying the data sent by the coordinator node and forward them to the base station. The
main advantage of this system in comparison to previous systems is to reduce the energy consumption to prolong
the network lifetime, speed up and extend the communication coverage to increase the freedom for enhance patient
quality of life. We have developed this system in multi-patient architecture for hospital healthcare and compared it with
the other existing networks based on multi-hop relay node in terms of coverage, energy consumption and speed.
