Phenotype characterization of shortness of breath of pediatric emergency room patients by objective wheeze and cough monitoring improves diagnostic and severity assessment accuracy and correlates with overall patient outcomes.
||Time Perspective: Prospective
Primary Outcome Measures:
- increase or decrease of WheezeRate (the proportion of wheezing in the respiratory cycle) [ Time Frame: Duration (from beginning to end) of emergency department stay. On average, 3 hours. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Characterize the dynamic pattern of wheeze rate (increase or decrease by 50% or unchanged) within 30 minutes of onset of therapy, and to correlate pattern to clinical diagnoses, severity assessment (accessory muscle use, oxygen saturation, inspiratory/expiratory ratio, severity of wheezing), and outcome (admission versus discharge).
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- cough count (increase or decrease by more then 1 cough event or unchanged) in response to treatment [ Time Frame: Duration (from beginning to end) of emergency department stay. On average, 3 hours. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
cough count (increase or decrease by more then 1 cough event or unchanged) in response to treatment and to correlate pattern to clinical diagnoses, severity assessment (accessory muscle use, oxygen saturation, inspiratory/expiratory ratio, severity of wheezing), and outcome (admission versus discharge).
