Respiration rate is monitored in most diseases, especially ones like sleep apnea and respiratory arrest. However, most devices available for monitoring are expensive, fragile and often need trained staff for operation. For obvious reasons, constantly monitoring the patient's breathing rate is also not feasible and our proposed module tends to modify this scenario. The hardware module uses a thermistor to monitor the patient's breathing rate. This is less costly, and also involves low power consumption as well as robust performance. The device also uses cloud computing to transmit the data to the doctor's smartphone app as well as to the patient's relatives' correspondence. A buzzer attached to the system notifies nearby medics in case of abnormal breathing rates. The device is specially adapted to suit rural Indian conditions. The prototype has been substantiated for accurate monitoring of breathing rates through the standard tests. © 2017 IEEE.
