About the Edition

Healthcare environments are increasingly becoming wireless. Often multiple systems, such as medical telemetry and wireless local area networks, must be co-located. If these wireless systems share a common bandwidth, interference due to coexistence is possible. Once a physical space is highly loaded with wireless transmitters, reliable digital transmissions must be ensured.As the wireless environment becomes more complex, risk management techniques should be employed to evaluate the benefit-to-risk ratio of multiple co-located systems.Coexistence testing and computer simulations are valid techniques to estimate the risk of radio frequency interference. Coexistence testing is a practical method of determining whether a system will function adequately, but testing is limited in its scope to defined physical parameters. Computer simulations can compute the bit error rates of co-located wireless systems. Should a bit error rate be determined by a simulation to fall above the threshold of 10-3, a physical coexistence test may be required.
