Abstract

Telemedicine approaches in the treatment of COPD can be useful for the detection of upcoming exacerbations. Specifically productive cough can serve as an effective monitoring parameter. By using modern technologies, we developed a smartphone application to record and analyze nocturnal cough in an outpatient environment. All results will be displayed through a web interface by patients, physicians and relatives. Monitoring cough could lead to an individual therapy and an increased quality of life.
