Globally breathe researchers are on the lookout for an inexpensive assessing tool and rapid point-of-care diagnostic methods of case finding in the new millennium. To assess the value of exhaled breath by different valid tools and methods. An extensive literature search was conducted in the course of data sources in the indexed literatures and website-based research reports. Sixty-six studies were identified from our exploration amongst 250 relevant articles. A broad standard was formulated in the dearth of a generally acknowledged methodology in the field of exhaled breathe research. Further, all available results were given due importance irrespective of the criteria for diagnosis used there. Wide differences in samples, primary outcome variables, lack of consistency in age category, ethnic variation, criteria for positive diagnosis, and study technologies confounded the outcome variables. All the approaches are essentially non-invasive and translating vital markers that need to be encouraged to conduct extensive field studies for precision of the methods. Further, we have to generate awareness about newer noninvasive diagnosis of different diseases to be embedded in the primary care levels among health care delivery personnel.: Enduring works on exhaled breathe has being considered with keen interest in this review. We have to walk on both feet by combining recent developments with the earlier gains in this field. The time has come to explore the unlimited worth of breath with sincerity as the successes of this cost-effective entrant will have a far reaching impact in self-care futuristic noninvasive models in health care.
