E-Textiles for Screening Respiratory Disorders along with Temperature Monitoring

By Arya E R, N Janani, Nandhini P, Veeralakshmi P and Dr. R. Brindha


This paper presents a branch of research where e-textiles is used for bio monitoring. This set-up is used for\ud screening sleep apnea and to alert physicians when there is a case of Hyperthermia. This proposal is to monitor\ud patients with respiratory disorders or diseases/disorders whose symptoms manifest as respiratory abnormalities\ud and abnormal temperature, and make it available to the doctor by plotting the values in MATLAB. Conventional\ud techniques used for screening and monitoring respiratory abnormalities include devices like cannula, nasal strips\ud etc., which are grueling and strenuous, adding to the patients’ suffering. The connection of this cutting edge\ud electronics field with textiles will ultimately enable both the study of deviations in the breathing rate and\ud temperature
