In this work we developed a Smart Breath Analyzer device devoted to the tele-monitoring of exhaled air in patients suffering Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease (COPD) and home-assisted by mechanical ventilation. The device based on sensors allows remote monitoring of a patient during a ventilotherapy session, and transmit the monitored signals to health service unit by TCP/IP communication through a cloud remote platform. The aim is to check continuously the effectiveness of therapy and/or any state of exacerbation of the disease requiring healthcare. By preliminary experimental tests, the prototype was validated on a volunteer subject.
