Electrocardiograms provide rhythm, rate and electrical activity of the heart which can be used to diagnose health issues. Current methodologies for wireless based heart monitoring favour the use of Bluetooth Low Energy, which can require bulky batteries for device longevity. This paper investigates the use of a novel ultra-low power communications technique utilising Ultra High Frequency Radio Frequency Identification to stream ECG data in real time to a host computer to enable sub 2mW power consumption.
