In this paper a new pressure sensor--based electronic device for the analysis of lung sounds has been designed and prototyped. The device allows the effective auscultation, the accurate processing and the detailed visualization (temporal and frequency graphs) of any lung sound. Moreover it is suitable for the continuous real-time monitoring of breathing functions, resulting very useful to diagnose respiratory pathologies. It provides medical specialists with a totally noninvasive high-engineering device able to detect and analyze the widest number of data for the monitoring of the respiratory system by the simple recording and evaluation of lung sounds being a substantiated correlation between lung sounds and diseases.

Abstract

In this paper a new pressure sensor--based electronic device for the analysis of lung sounds has been designed and prototyped. The device allows the effective auscultation, the accurate processing and the detailed visualization (temporal and frequency graphs) of any lung sound. Moreover it is suitable for the continuous real-time monitoring of breathing functions, resulting very useful to diagnose respiratory pathologies. It provides medical specialists with a totally noninvasive high-engineering device able to detect and analyze the widest number of data for the monitoring of the respiratory system by the simple recording and evaluation of lung sounds being a substantiated correlation between lung sounds and diseases.
