(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ANALYSE SPECTROSCOPIQUE DU PROFIL RESPIRATOIRE ET SON EMPLOI POUR FACILITER LE DIAGNOSTIC D'AFFECTIONS
Abstract
(EN)
A medical diagnostic device for analyzing gases in expired breath. The device includes a spectroscopic analyzer component for obtaining a patient's breath concentration profile; a computer operably coupled to the analyzer component; a memory component operably coupled to the computer; and a database stored within the memory component containing spectroscopic breath analysis profiles. Each profile is characteristic of at least one of a plurality of medical conditions. A computer program compares the obtained patient's breath profile to the stored database of spectroscopic breath profiles, such that diagnosis of the presence or absence of a medical condition is facilitated.

L'invention a pour objet un dispositif de diagnostic médical pour l'analyse des gaz présents dans l'air expiré du patient. Le dispositif comporte un analyseur spectroscopique pour produire un profil des concentrations dans l'haleine du patient; un ordinateur couplé fonctionnellement à l'analyseur; une mémoire couplée fonctionnellement à l'ordinateur et une base de données stockée dans la mémoire contenant des profils d'analyses spectroscopiques d'haleines. Chaque profil est caractéristique d'au moins une affection parmi plusieurs. Un logiciel compare le profil respiratoire du patient aux profils stockés dans la base de données afin de faciliter le diagnostic ou non d'une affection.
