TELESPIRO: A LOW-COST MOBILE SPIROMETER FOR RESOURCE-LIMITED SETTINGS

Abstract:

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a disabling combination of emphysema and chronic bronchitis, relies on spirometric lung function measurements for clinical diagnosis and treatment. Because spirometers are unavailable in most of the developing world, this project developed a low cost point of care spirometer prototype for the mobile phone called the "TeleSpiro."
