Wireless Sensor Network is greatly evolved in recent years. Technological advancements in wireless networks are intended to develop various fields especially in medical domain. Nowadays, remote health monitoring is possible by the enormous growth of wireless body area sensor networks. The Wireless Body Area Sensor Network monitors the human health by using wearable body sensors, and sends the status of the human health to the medical experts. Body nodes will be placed on, in and around the human body. The major key issue in Wireless Body Area Sensor Network is power management. Since batteries used in sensors are very tiny, it tends to have a minimal lifetime. In order to increase the lifetime of the sensor node, the energy needs to be utilized in an efficient manner. In this paper we have proposed conditional re-transmission technique to minimize the energy consumption. So the sensor nodes lifetime will get increased and in turn Wireless Body Area Sensor Networks lifetime will also be increased. By increasing the lifetime of the sensor nodes, the batteries or sensor nodes need not to be replaced frequently.
