Respiratory diseases such as asthma are becoming more prevalent among both children and adults. Patients increasingly feel the need to monitor themselves and aid their diagnosis with more frequent measurements without the need to visit a clinic. Spirometry and its accurate interpretation are necessary in addressing this issue, and smartphones and other mobile platforms can economically increase access to these valuable measurements. We will demonstrate mobileSpiro, a multi-configuration Android-based portable spirometer which allows for self-patient monitoring of respiratory conditions. In particular, mobileSpiro takes real-time measurements of lung capacity and assists in monitoring for potential disorders. Additionally, the results of each spirometric maneuver are transmitted to a remote server. As an open-source, open-interface spirometer, the system encourages innovation at a vastly decreased cost of deployment.
