Abstract

We introduce an innovative wristband wireless device based on a dual wavelength NDIR optical measurement and an optimized thermo-fluidic channel to improve the extraction of the carbon dioxide gas from the blood within the heated skin region. We describe a signal processing model combining an innovative linear quadratic model of the optical measurement and a fluidic model. The evaluation is achieved using a cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET). We compare carbon dioxide tension measurement at the forearm level using our device, with an electrochemical measurement at the forearm level, and an optical measurement of the end-tidal exhaled breath. These curves demonstrate a significant reduction of the variability of carbon dioxide pressure measurement with respect to the pressure dynamic range during the test.
