This paper presents a wireless communication protocol based on the Earliest Deadline First policy for wireless body sensor networks. This work advances a previous effort by proposing using an implicit Earliest Deadline First policy to guarantee real-time communication by optimizing network traffic flow, although this strategy may imply using the totality of bandwidth resources. The proposed protocol uses a slotted time-triggered medium access transmission control that is collision-free, even in
