RESPIRATORY RATE MONITORING

RESPIRATORY RATE MONITORING

The number of breaths per minute is measured through respiratory rate monitoring. An adult’s normal resting respiratory rate is 12 to 20 breaths per minute. The measurement of respiratory rate aids in the diagnosis of asthma, anxiety, pneumonia, congestive heart failure, lung illness, narcotic usage, and drug overdose, among other disorders. The respiratory rate is generally stable throughout the day. Any sudden change in the respiratory rate indicates abnormality. Thus monitoring the respiratory rate helps in identifying the abnormalities at an early stage. In children, a rapid respiratory rate is an early symptom of pneumonia. Respiratory rate monitoring can thus be used to detect pneumonia and other respiratory problems early. The thoracic impedance method is commonly used to measure the respiratory rate.VinCense uses the PPG signal to provide continual and noninvasive monitoring of respiratory rate. It is the first of its kind in terms of determining respiratory rate from a PPG signal from the fingertip pulse oximeter.

RESPIRATORY RATE MONITORING

Its compact and portable form factor and respiratory monitoring capabilities along with its cost-time effectiveness make it perfect for ambulatory monitoring. Emergency alerts will also be sent to the stakeholders in case of any abnormal readings. Thus it helps in remote monitoring and management of respiratory disorders in a quantifiable manner.

Use cases: Management of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), pulmonary diseases
