The invention relates to a medical parameter monitoring device which allows the monitoring of a plurality of medical parameters from a remote location. The invention uses a central monitoring system which transmits and receives date parameters via RF from remote patient monitors. The monitoring system utilized a digital spread spectrum RF transceiver between the central monitoring system to the remote monitors. Forward error correcting, frequency hopping, and spread sprectrum communications are employed to provide accurate transmission of data for a plurality of physiological parameters. Transmitted data can be automatically registered into storage in the central monitoring system.
