Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PREDICTING AN ACUTE EXACERBATION OF A PATIENT'S HEALTH CONDITION
Abstract:
The present invention pertains to a system for predicting an acute exacerbation of a health condition of a patient having a chronic disease, in particular COPD, comprising an activity sensor unit (2) for measuring activity levels (AL) of a patient, a detector unit (11) for measuring vital parameters (VP) of the patient as a function of the measured activity level (AL), and an evaluation unit (3), wherein the evaluation unit (3) is configured to determine a long-time health level (LH) on the basis of the measured vital parameters (VP) as a function of the corresponding measured activity level (AL), determine a current health level (CH) on the basis of the measured vital parameters (VP) as a function of the corresponding measured activity level (AL), indicate a probability of an acute exacerbation according to a pre-defined alarming deviation (AD) of the current health level (CH) from the long-time health level (LH).
