Up to date progress in embedded computing systems have led to the appearance of wireless sensor networks, consisting of small, battery-powered "motes" with restricted computation and radio communication competences. Sensor networks authorize data congregation and computation to be severely embedded in the physical environment. This technology has the prospective to blow the deliverance and study of resuscitative heed by allowing imperative cryptogram to be routinely collected and completely incorporated into the patient care/heed record and utilized for real-time triage, association with hospital records, and enduring surveillance. Medical Agents (Chemical, Biological, and radiological) can mess about with the activities of medical care suppliers, patient samples/trials, and drug management. This fallouts/leads in a shut down of all medical heed/care, leave-taking patients at a foremost jeopardy. The scientific defy is to build up sensors to identify and keep an eye on any infringements in the medical care environment prior to hazard to life occurs. Wireless devices have to communicate multimedia data such as patient information, laboratory results/trials, prescriptions, and EKG and X-ray reports. The consistency, protection, and truthfulness of these wireless devices and sensors can influence the aptness entrée to information for patient monitoring/supervision. Furthermore, data can be despoiled, computer information systems (I. S's) can be unsuccessful, and communication networks may possibly practice denial of service attacks direct to absolute collapse of an appropriate patient care/heed. In this article, we confer protection and safety concerns in medical environment, and distinctiveness of sensors, the technology/expertise, categories and research issues/agenda's in denial of service, smart antennas, fault tolerant authentication, privacy issues, and energy contemplations. A dialogue of sensors in patient rooms, wards/clinics, hospitals, and dimensions of safety and security is offered. The on hand devices for sensor and wireless communication are also briefly included.
