Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a common preventable and treatable disease characterized by persistent airflow limitations. In COPD, exacerbations are worsening of symptoms beyond day-to-day variations that, if not promptly treated, could worsen the course of disease. This work presents a disease management system that remotely monitors the health status of patients and it detects the onset of COPD-related worrisome events. To this aims it analyses only the heart rate and the oxygen saturation, which are simply collected via a wireless pulse oximeter connected to a smartphone. The system has been tested by 22 COPD patients telemonitored at home for six months, showing encouraging results.

Abstract

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a common preventable and treatable disease characterized by persistent airflow limitations. In COPD, exacerbations are worsening of symptoms beyond day-to-day variations that, if not promptly treated, could worsen the course of disease. This work presents a disease management system that remotely monitors the health status of patients and it detects the onset of COPD-related worrisome events. To this aims it analyses only the heart rate and the oxygen saturation, which are simply collected via a wireless pulse oximeter connected to a smartphone. The system has been tested by 22 COPD patients telemonitored at home for six months, showing encouraging results.
