Sensing System for Personalized Asthma Trigger Identification and Management

Raharjo, Inez ;   Venugopalan, Janani ;   Wang, May D.

Asthma is a common chronic disease of the respiratory system. The high disease burden is caused by challenges in timely asthma intervention and management, mainly due to difficulty in identifying the correct asthma triggers. Hence we propose a cloud based solution with a portable sensor device and a smart phone app to collect potential trigger data and alert patients to promote better asthma management. This solution is aimed at portability, low cost and is potentially aimed at reducing ED visits and hence the cost of asthma care.
