doc.: IEEE 802.15-15-0037-01-004n SubmissionSlide 14 CMB Background Wireless connectivity is already used for healthcare applications both within hospitals and in residential situations. This provides flexibility to clinicians and healthcare providers and mobility and convenience for the patients. Low Rate Wireless Personal Area Networks (LR-WPAN) are already widely being used for this. Applications include electrocardiography and the monitoring of pulse oximetry, blood pressure and glucose levels as well as other patient vital signs like respiration, heart rate and temperature. In China as in the US, LR-WPAN is part of the growing Internet of Things Industries; it has been applied in hospital areas for medical and related info communications. IEEE Std. 802.15.4 Chinese medical devices will make use of the existing high volume applications in the Chinese medical bands. Jan. 2015
