  Purpose

This study will examine an innovative strategy to monitor asthma symptoms by using existing technology to develop a non-invasive device for monitoring asthma symptoms in adolescents. Using an iPod as a platform, and current sound data analysis techniques, a prototype device will be developed that will directly monitor the chosen parameters of asthma symptoms, including wheezing, coughing and activity levels. This small non-invasive device will be continuously carried by or placed in close proximity to the adolescent on a daily basis. It is hypothesized that such a device would be acceptable to adolescents and would lend accuracy and objectivity to symptom assessment; something that existing monitoring strategies have yet to achieve. It will also stimulate the adolescents' partnership in asthma self-monitoring and ultimately lead to effective asthma management.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • number of coughs per 24 hours [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The device is supposed to detect and count the number of coughs per 24 hours and register the numbers into the device.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of wheezes per 24 hours [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The device is supposed to detect and count the number of wheezes per 24 hours and register the numbers into the device.

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Adolescents with asthma
Ages 13-17 with an asthma diagnosis-both symptomatic and non-symptomatic- and with currently prescribed asthma medication.
Device: Automated Device for Asthma Monitoring (ADAM)
Both groups of adolescents (asthma/non-asthma)wore a prototype ADAM device for 7 days as they went about their usual daily activities. At night, the device continued to monitor symptoms as it was placed in close proximity to the adolescent's head during sleep. The asthma group answered survey questions about the status of their symptoms and their usage of asthma medication every morning and every evening- entering their answers directly onto the monitoring device.
Adolescents without asthma
Ages 13-17 without an asthma diagnosis and without any other respiratory condition that presents with asthma-like symptoms.
Device: Automated Device for Asthma Monitoring (ADAM)
Both groups of adolescents (asthma/non-asthma)wore a prototype ADAM device for 7 days as they went about their usual daily activities. At night, the device continued to monitor symptoms as it was placed in close proximity to the adolescent's head during sleep. The asthma group answered survey questions about the status of their symptoms and their usage of asthma medication every morning and every evening- entering their answers directly onto the monitoring device.
