The purpose of this paper is to identify differences between abnormal and normal lung signals gathered by an EIT device, which is a new, non-invasive system that seeks the electrical conductivity and permittivity inside a body. Lung performances in patients are investigated using Phase Space Mapping technique on Electrical EIT signals. The database used in this paper contains 82 registered records of 52 individuals with proper lung volume. The results of this paper show that as the delay parameter (τ) increases, the SD1 parameter of phase space mapping indicates a significant difference between normal and abnormal lung volumes. The value of the SD1 parameter with τ = 6 in the case that the lung volume is in a normal condition is 342.57 ± 32.75 while it is 156.71 ± 26.01 in non-optimal mode. This method can be used to identify the patients’ lung volumes with chronic respiratory illnesses and is an accurate assessment of the diverse methods to treat respiratory system illnesses in addition to saving various therapeutic costs and dangerous consequences that are likely to occur by using improper treatment methods. It can also reduce the required treatment durations.
