The global machine-to-machine (M2M) network is proposed to support wide area healthcare service using the concept of IPv6 over low power wireless personal area (6LoWPAN). This network can give international healthcare services between countries and intercity healthcare services between cities with the excellent accessibility in a hierarchical network structure. Low power embedded wearable sensors are designed to measure health parameters dynamically and connected to the M2M node for wireless transmission through the internet or external IP enable networks via the M2M gateway. Practical tests were conducted by the M2M gateway with the effective use of IEEE 802.15.4 and the 6LoWPAN protocol in wide area. The physical health state is estimated by the heart rate variability analysis in time and frequency domain with the significant information of autonomic nervous system in the server. Our approach for the global M2M network is managed to process the large amount of biomedical signals through the 6LoWPAN and internet accurately. Patients may comfortably monitor their own health condition regardless of the place in the global M2M network environment.
