Building a Decision Support System for Automated Mobile Asthma Monitoring in Remote Areas

  title={Building a Decision Support System for Automated Mobile Asthma Monitoring in Remote Areas},
  author={Chinazunwa Uwaoma and Gunjan Mansingh},
Advances in mobile computing have paved the way for the development of several health applications using Smartphone as a platform for data acquisition, analysis and presentation. Such areas where m-health systems have been extensively deployed include monitoring of long-term health conditions like Cardio-Vascular Diseases and pulmonary disorders, as well as detection of changes from baseline measurements of such conditions. Asthma is one of the respiratory conditions with growing concern across…

Multidimensional analysis using sensor arrays with deep learning for high-precision and high-accuracy diagnosis

By feeding a deep neural network (DNN) with the data from a low-cost and low-accuracy sensor array, it is demonstrated that it becomes possible to significantly improve the measurements’ precision and accuracy.



Using Embedded Sensors in Smartphones to Monitor and Detect Early Symptoms of Exercise-induced Asthma

The design centers on the idea of creating a simple and portable asthma monitoring system that is able to detect asthma vital signs, perform signal analysis and context generation; and also send information to other mobile devices worn by caregivers and physicians.

Towards Real-Time Monitoring and Detection of Asthma Symptoms on Resource-Constraint Mobile Device

The design and preliminary result show that using only built-in sensors in smartphones, mobile phones can sufficiently and reliably monitor health status of patients with long-term respiratory conditions such as asthma.

A rule-based mHealth system for cardiac monitoring

A Rule-based Decision Support System for mHealth environments; the designed intelligent system is devised to the detection and signaling of abnormal or emergency situations by using contextual information, i.e. by correlating data coming from a wearable electrocardiography (ECG) device with information regarding patient's posture and his/her physical activities.
