© 2020 IEEE.In this paper, we propose a flow-guided nano-network deployed inside of a human vascular system. The network consists of bio-sensors reporting medical events, small nano-nodes working as information carriers, and nano-routers communicating with external systems. In order to evaluate the performance and feasibility, a preliminary analytical model for this type of flow-guided nano-network is derived and validated through simulations. Results reveal that the network can meet medical requirements in terms of reported events per minute with a feasible number of nano-nodes.
