PrePrint: Providing Medical-Grade QoS for Real-Time M-Health Telemetry with Cellular Technology

We evaluate the the use of cellular communications mobile wireless healthcare by examining the implementation of an example wireless electrocardiogram application in a CDMA2000 1xEV-DO network. We endeavor to quantify “medical-grade” real-time quality of service in terms of data integrity and delay, and show how this might be achieved by designing a CDMA2000 protocol stack for wireless ECG.
