- In this paper, a robust pattern classification of breath sounds for the diagnosis of pulmonary dysfunction in noise environment is proposed. The feature parameter extraction method by highpass lifter algorithm and PM(projection measure) algorithm are used. 17 different groups of breath sounds are experimentally classified and investigated. The classification has been performed by 6 different types of combinations with proposed methods to evaluate the performances, such as ARC with EDM and LCC with EDM, WLCC with EDM, ARC with PM, LCC with PM, WLCC with PM. Furthermore, all feature parameters are extracted to 80th orders by 5th orders step, and all experiments are evaluated in increasing noise environments by degrees SNR 24dB to 0dB. As a results, WLCC which is derived from highpass lifter algorithm, is selected for the feature parameter extraction method. PM is more robust than EDM in noisy environments to test and compare experimental results. WLCC with PM method(WLCC/PM) has a better performance in an increasing noise environment for diagnosis of pulmonary dysfunction.
