Among respiratory diseases ones with obstructive spirometry pattern can be distinguished (e.g., bronchial asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis). The main groups of diseases exacerbated by air pollution are cardiovascular and respiratory conditions. The air pollution is not only responsible for the clinically significant worsening of symptoms in patients with already diagnosed diseases, but can also affect basic physiological parameters. We presented the device, environmental sensor, portable device with a battery for measuring environmental parameters in the direct surroundings of the patient. Parameters were measurable such as: PM2.5, Temperature, Humidity, Pressure, NO2, SO2, Insolation and their range. Moreover, the mobile application was designed, which is used for showing the environment and respiratory parameters to the patient. The application, together with the monitoring center, enables continuous monitoring of patients' health and consultation with a doctor at any time. In addition, sensors of environmental parameters allow you to monitor air quality, which is extremely important among patients with respiratory diseases. The aim of this paper is to present the preliminary data on the relationship between environmental parameters and respiratory waveform and to propose a new teleinformatic health monitoring system for people with respiratory diseases.
