Development of a stand‐alone portable respiratory rate monitor using a Doppler radar

Abstract

Respiratory rate (RR) is known to be a more accurate predictor of clinical deterioration than other vital signs. However, there were few respiration measurement devices certified as medical devices that could be used in daily clinical settings. Therefore, using a bult-in microcontroller (72×57×12 mm) instead of a personal computer, we developed a portable stand-alone respiration measurement device with minimum workload in computing that can be used for non-contact measurement in 30 s using a Doppler radar. In this study, the problems of respiration measurement using a Doppler radar, such as miscounting of respiratory peaks were clarified, and proposed device with respiratory peaks miscount prevention algorithm achieved high accuracy RR measurement. Clinical testing was conducted on pediatric outpatients of Children’s Medical Center, Showa University Koto Toyosu Hospital. The measurement accuracy of the system was confirmed to be comparable to the respiration measurement accuracy of stationary certified medical devices used in hospital, such as capnometers and the chest wall impedance method used in bedside monitors.
