The Body Area Networks (BANs) are quick growth to develop e-health care system for monitoring to various patients and are convenient and accessible for both patients and physicians. Many researchers are focused on different area like-signal processing, biosensor design, power efficiency and so on in BANs. However, still numerous issues are plagued in BANs to development and implementation effectively at present. One of these is to increase dependability which includes-reliability, security, availability etc from both communication perspectives intra and extra BAN. This review paper aims to investigate the exist BANs and highlights the merits and demerits of the current BANs. In addition, the proposed paper displays the challenges of present BANs and proposed a mechanism to improve the dependability of BANs.
