Abstract—Although kidney transplantation is a successful treatment for end stage kidney disease, complications can occur that include bleeding, vascular thrombosis, renal artery stenosis, ureteral stenosis, lymhocele, fever, rejection, etc. Post transplant monitoring and prompt medical attention and early treatment will be decisive in a successful transplant and recovery and this monitoring can be improved by great bounds using wireless sensor networks. Nephrologists need real time data to monitor various parameters of the patients for periodic medical requirements. Some medications may be prescribed for only 7 to 14 days, such as antibiotics. Others, like your anti-rejection medications are usually prescribed for lifetime. In case the data received has variations in the threshold value of the parameters, report is sent to doctor’s (nephrologist) PDA and nurse in charge for necessary action. In immaculate medical assistance, consultants can rely on this extremely high potential Intelligent Sensor Networks that provides near accurate pathological and physical parameters which are obtained from six wearable sensors namely creatinine, temperature, respiration, ECG, blood pressure, and heart rate that are placed on the patient’s body which sends the sensed data through wireless network using E-AODV protocol to a Personal Data Transceiver (PDT) and the nephrologist’s PDA.
