Monitoring of Physiological Signs and Their Impact on The Covid-19 Pandemic: Review
LISTI, ENSA Ibn Zohr University Agadir, 80000, Morocco
Recently, monitoring of physiological signs such as heart rate and respiratory rate is very important, especially when we are talking about pandemics like Covid-19. In this paper we present a state of the art on the different techniques used for heart rate and respiratory rate extraction. These techniques presented will be based on image processing, were traditional sensor-based techniques creating a lot of problem at the contact level between patient and doctor. For this reason, we focus on non-contact techniques to avoid these problems. Generally, the literature review shows that non-contact monitoring techniques are based on RGB, thermal and multispectral cameras, the choice between these different cameras depends on the application that will be used. For example, thermal cameras are dedicated to the prediction of respiratory rate and temperature, while RGB and multispectral cameras are used for heart rate.
Key words: Physiological signs / Heart rate / Respiratory rate / Monitoring / Non-contact techniques / Image processing / RGB camera / Covid-19.
