The coronavirus has the greatest effect on the lungs. That is why the lungs of patients with COVID-19 need constant medical monitoring. The paper considers the biomedical cyber-physical system for round-the-clock monitoring of lung functions in patients with COVID-19, which allows physicians to continuously monitor the main organ of patients affected by the coronavirus — the lungs. It is designed to monitor the patient’s condition around the clock and regardless of the patient’s location. Therefore, the created means allow the doctor to see the level of oxygen in the patient’s blood continuously at a distance (say, from his office).
