Hepatic coma, also known as hepatic encephalopathy, is loss of consciousness as a result of liver failure. Hepatic coma represents the final stage of hepatic encephalopathy - grade IV, a progressive brain dysfunction due to accumulation of substances toxic to the brain. Hepatic coma can rapidly progress and may ultimately lead to death. Therefore, early diagonosis of hepatic coma is consirerably crucial for patients‘ life. If not, patients with hepatic coma can die in few days. In this study, I have proposed to overview early diagnosis of hepatic encephalopathy by breath analysis using electronic noses which are regarded as rapid, inexpensive way of gas detection. Keywords: Electronic nose, hepatic coma, sensor arrays, neural Networks.
