Certainty Modeling of a Decision Support System for Mobile Monitoring of Exercise-induced Respiratory Conditions

  title={Certainty Modeling of a Decision Support System for Mobile Monitoring of Exercise-induced Respiratory Conditions},
  author={Chinazunwa Uwaoma and Gunjan Mansingh},
Mobile health systems in recent times, have notably improved the healthcare sector by empowering patients to actively participate in their health, and by facilitating access to healthcare professionals. Effective operation of these mobile systems nonetheless, requires high level of intelligence and expertise implemented in the form of decision support systems (DSS). However, common challenges in the implementation include generalization and reliability, due to the dynamics and incompleteness of…

Proposing a decision support system for automated mobile asthma monitoring in remote areas*
The use of smartphone equipped with built-in sensors, to capture and analyze early symptoms of asthma triggered by exercise is proposed, based on decision support system (DSS) techniques for measuring and analyzing the level and type of patient’s physical activity as well as weather conditions that predispose asthma attack.
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.
