<p>Breathing is one of the vital signs that are considered important from medical point of view. The quality of breathing is evaluated by considering several factors. In this paper we present the results of experiments that use a smart phone to evaluate some of the factors to determine the quality of breathing. The accelerometer in the smart phone is used to measure the breathing. We measure subjects with normal breathing, slow breathing, fast breathing and irregular breathing. Our results show that we can evaluate the rate of breathing using a smart phone with an accuracy ranging from 95% to 100%. We can also evaluate the regularity and the effort of breathing.</p>
