In this paper, a system that transmits ECG signals which get from hand baggage ECG is implemented by using Bluetooth technology. Bluetooth technology is a close range wireless communication used wireless frequency 2.4GHz bandwidth. This technology consumes very small power and provides high reliability also self error correction with high speed frequency hopping. Because every device which uses Bluetooth protocol can communicate each other. These can connect between the system implemented and any devices such as mobile telephone with Bluetooth module, notebook, and the personal mobile device. Also, the paper proposes capability of transmission to the sever of hospital through each type of wireless communication device that acquired medical information signals in mobile medical machine. The system consists of hardware parts with Bluetooth module and host part, and software parts with blutooth protocol stacks. The host precesses a connection with other device and transmits ECG signals with bluetooth frequency hopping sequence.
