Abstract

In this chapter the main aspects of telemonitoring are described and discussed in the field of chronic respiratory diseases. The authors describe the various challenges they faced, in the order in which they did. First, they face the problem of effectiveness of the method, then, the problems related to the economic viability, and finally, the problems related to the operating method. The authors conclude that remote monitoring is a promising method in terms of effectiveness of follow-up that must be performed under well controlled conditions. They still require further validation studies to improve the effectiveness and reduce the effects of new issues that arise.
