Currently, the general public requires devices getting faster and great performance, that is, devices ensuring a better quality of service. One way to achieve these goals is through the use of devices supported by the mobile com-puting with tools to help the search for information. Bluetooth technology is an open standard for wireless communication allowing the transmission of data and information between electronic devices within walking distance, with minimum resource expenditures, safe and rapid transition of data. So, the Bluetooth tech-nology was initially designed to support simple network devices and personal devices such as mobile phones, PDAs and computers, but quickly it were discov-ered other applications in several areas. In this article, it will be performed a lit-erature review on the topic, with the goal to understand how the Bluetooth tech-nology can benefit increases in the Quality of Service and the presentation of some actual and potential biomedical applications.
