Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Detection Through E-Nose & Breath Analysis

News release, Digital Olfaction Society – February 22 2022, Tokyo – Japan

 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Detection Through E-Nose & Breath AnalysisA recent article by Durán Acevedo et al. presents a database which was obtained by acquiring measurements through a multisensory device called Electronic Nose (E-nose). 

This device was based on a matrix of metal oxide sensors, in order to discriminate and classify a group of people affected by the respiratory disease Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), smokers and healthy control people through exhaled breath analysis.

The database consists of 4 groups of measurements which were acquired through the E-nose system: 10 control samples (healthy people), 20 samples of people with COPD, 4 samples of smokers and 10 air samples, where in each group two samples of exhaled breath per person were acquired giving a total of 78 samples (40 from COPD, 20 from control, 8 from smokers and 10 from the air).

Know more about this study.


The most recent discoveries and olfaction devices will be presented in DOS 2022 Congress – on November 29-30, 2022 in Tokyo & online.
