Asthma is a common chronic respiratory disease caused by inflammatory in the bronchioles and narrow airways. Tools usually use by doctor to detect signs or symptoms of asthma are spirometer and peak flow meter, and yet there is no tool that is able to monitor the severity of asthma. However, there are obvious drawbacks of the current tools as patients always have bad effect and their symptoms worsen after they performed the maneuvers. Capnography which is used non-invasively to measure the concentration of carbon dioxide in breath out air was recently introduced to overcome the current limitation. This study aims to design a GUI (graphical user interface) to detect the severity of asthma by using MATLAB software. The GUI build will present the data into simpler and friendly program. It consists of patient information part and capnography analysis which is able to detect the severity of asthma. Success of this project widen the usage of capnography in medical areas and the GUI build may serve as new method to help the healthcare professionals to monitor the severity of asthma due to its properties of non-invasive, effort-independent, and continuous monitoring.
