In the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, the integration of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies has played a pivotal role in reshaping public health and healthcare delivery. Interconnected devices have demonstrated their capacity to collect, transmit, and analyze data, significantly impacting various aspects of pandemic management.

COVID-19 – Monitoring with IoT Devices is a comprehensive guide to measuring the impact of COVID-19 infection and monitoring outbreak metrics. Beginning with an introduction to SARS-CoV-2 and its symptoms, the book presents chapters on machine learning (supervised and unsupervised algorithms) and techniques to predict COVID-19 outcomes. The book concludes with the role of IoT technology in detecting COVID-19 infections within a community, showcasing different computing models applicable to specific use-cases.

Key Features:

  • - Explores the pivotal role of IoT technology in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • - Covers a data-driven approach to COVID-19 monitoring by explaining methods for data collection, prediction, and analysis.
  • - Includes specific recommendations for machine learning algorithms designed for COVID-19 monitoring.
  • - Easy-to-read structured chapters suitable for novices in computer science and biomedical engineering.

COVID-19 – Monitoring with IoT Devices provides a valuable resource for understanding the role of IoT technology in managing and mitigating the impact of COVID-19, and developing adequate infection control policies. It also showcases the potential of IoT for future research and applications in the healthcare sector. This book is intended for a diverse readership, including academicians, industry professionals, researchers, and healthcare practitioners.

In patients with severe COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 can cause not only antiviral immune responses to be activated but also uncontrolled inflammatory responses characterized by the significant release of pro-inflammatory cytokines. It can result in lymphopenia, lymphocyte dysfunction, and abnormalities in granulocytes and monocytes. Septic shock, severe multiple organ dysfunction, and infections by microorganisms may result from these immune abnormalities brought on by SARS-CoV-2. There is growing evidence that patients with viruses have resistant patterns closely linked to their disease progression. These patients exhibit lymphopenia, activation, and dysfunction of lymphocytes. They also have abnormalities in granulocytes and monocytes. They show elevated cytokines and increased immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies.

The well-defined scheme known as the Internet of Things (IoT) comprises digital, mechanical, and interconnected computing techniques. These devices can transmit data over a defined network without any human involvement. It is the network-compliant system of connected devices and operations, including; software, hardware, the network's connectivity, and any other necessary computer or electronic device that ultimately makes them responsive by supporting data altercation and collection. Utilizing an interconnected web made it possible for the healthcare system to be helpful for the proper monitoring of COVID-19 patients. The hospital readmission rate is reduced, and this technology improves patient satisfaction. The book is a description of how these devices aid in helping humanity.
