Abstract: The use of wireless sensor networks in healthcare has the potential to enhance the services provided to citizens. In particular they play an important role in the development of state-of-the-art patient monitoring applications. Nevertheless due to the critical nature of the data conveyed by such patient monitoring applications they have to fulfil high standards of quality of service in order to obtain the confidence of all players in the healthcare industry. In such context vis-à-vis the quality of service being provided by the wireless sensor network this work presents an adaptive and context-aware method to detect and classify performance degradation events. The proposed method has the ability to catch the most significant and damaging variations on the metrics being used to quantify the quality of service provided by the network without overreacting to small and innocuous variations on the metric’s value.
