A Microcomputer System for the Analysis of Spirograms
The present report describes a microcomputer system for the analysis of spirometric data which is a part of a more general system name Computerized Lung Function Diagnostics System developed at the Thoracic Disease Clinic of the University of Genoa. The computing unit is constituted by a low cost TRS-80 which is based on a ZILOG-Z-80 microcomputer with 8 bits words and 48 K bytes core memory, two 84 K bytes floppy disk units, a video display and a line printer.
