With the increase in frequencies and unpredictability of disasters worldwide, there is a necessity for novel ubiquitous communication systems enabling Emergency Medical Care (EMC) at the disaster site for e-triaging of the victims. It is necessary to give importance to the transmission of critical victims’ data as opposed to non-critical victims’ data, over the deployed communication system towards the medical caretaker at the disaster site. This needs the requirement of medical condition aware Quality-of-Service (QoS) support for the transmission of the heterogeneous type of medical data. This paper proposes the deployment of Body-to-Body network (BBN/B2B) to transmit medical data towards the healthcare professionals to perform e-triaging. Further, the paper focuses on the importance of medical condition aware probabilistic and differentiated flow specific and network-specific QoS support at BBN to improve the quality and speediness of the etriage by analysing design criteria required by the routing protocol for BBN at EMC. The proposed approach is applicable to disaster management, mobile health monitoring, military, and sports training
