About this app

Respi-Rate is a practical application which helps healthcare professionals to determine the patient's respiratory rate.

The respiratory rate is usually determined by estimating or measuring the number of breaths at a certain time interval, followed by conversion to a one-minute respiratory rate.

With Respi-Rate, you only need to press the "Lungs button" – each time the patient starts to inhale. The application calculates the respiratory rate using its own innovative algorithm.

For example, the "Lung button" is pressed at 00:00 (mm:ss) and 00:05 – in both cases, when the patient starts to inhale. The interval between the first and the second breath is 5 seconds. The calculated RR, in this case, is 12 (60 seconds divided by the intervals, 60/5=12).
The application takes the user's reaction time into account (the time between the start of the patient's breath and the pressing of the button in the application), and the standard deviation of the reaction time. Therefore, after each pressing of the “Lungs button", the application verifies whether the determination of the respiratory rate can be considered accurate. If not, then the application continues to define additional intervals so that the accuracy of the determined respiratory rate is at 95% ± 1 breath / min. with a regular breathing pattern.

For the most accurate calculation, it is important to keep pressing the button at the same stage of the breath cycle (for example when the patient begins to inhale). Do not use this application when the patient's breathing is irregular.

Please consult your doctor before making a medical decision.

Fast & simple. Enjoy the app!

pretty useful. would be nice if you could set the time interval for recording presses of the button. it's something like 15 secs at the moment but would be more accurate if you could set it to 30 secs or even a minute.

Very simple to use. Quick measurement and unlike other breath apps, it is affected less by being conscious of one's breath rate being measured, if you're measuring your own breath rate.

Well designed and useful app for every physician. Breath rate is one of the most important function to measure but we usually just estimate it and this can be largely inaccurate. So use this app instead.
