Introduction: Objective markers for asthma, that can be measured without extra patient effort, could mitigate current shortcomings in asthma monitoring. We investigated whether smartphone-recorded nocturnal cough and sleep quality can be utilized for the detection of periods with uncontrolled asthma or meaningful changes in asthma control and for...

Introduction: The nature of nocturnal cough is largely unknown. It might be a valid marker for asthma control but very few studies characterized it as a basis for better defining its role and its use as clinical marker. This study investigated prevalence and characteristics of nocturnal cough in asthmatics over the course of four weeks. Methods:...

Background: Asthma is one of the most prevalent chronic respiratory diseases. Despite increased investment in treatment, little progress has been made in the early recognition and treatment of asthma exacerbations over the last decade. Nocturnal cough monitoring may provide an opportunity to identify patients at risk for imminent exacerbations. Rec...

Ubiquitous mobile devices have the potential to reduce the financial burden of healthcare systems by providing scalable and cost-efficient health monitoring applications. Coughing is a symptom associated with prevalent pulmonary diseases, and bears great potential for being exploited by monitoring applications. Prior research has shown the feasibil...

Context: Intervention components of a MobileCoach based smartphone app to promote walking were assessed in a seven-week micro-randomized trial (N = 274). In order to make a significant contribution to public health, the app must also engage those at higher risk for adverse health outcomes, i.e. elderly, less active or less healthy participants. Met...

Context: In situ patient data over multiple weeks are needed to explore the potential of nocturnal cough and sleep quality as digital biomarkers for asthma. Methods: Ninety-four asthmatics need to complete a 29-day EMA study in which nocturnal smartphone sensor data is recorded and daily questionnaires of 13 to 45 items are delivered by an adapted...

Introduction: There has been limited research investigating whether small financial incentives can promote participation, behavior change, and engagement in physical activity promotion programs. This study evaluates the effects of two types of small financial incentives within a physical activity promotion program of a Swiss health insurance compa...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction: Nocturnal cough is a burdensome asthma symptom. However, knowledge about the prevalence of nocturnal cough in asthma is limited. Furthermore, prior research has shown that nocturnal cough and impaired sleep quality are associated with asthma control, but the association between these two symptoms remains unclear. This study further in...

We are investigating to which degree of accuracy can a mobile application detect asthmatic nocturnal cough and sleep quality with the smartphone’s built-in microphone?

The poster gives an overview of health literacy video clips for children with Asthma which have been produced in 2017 (German version only, French and Italian versions will follow in 2018). The video clips are available here: https://www.lungenliga.ch/de/krankheiten-ihre-folgen/asthma-bei-kindern/asthma-lern-videoclips.html

Health literacy is a crucial ingredient of successful asthma self-management. Studies have shown that a paucity of asthma health literacy leads to lower levels of asthma control and thus more severe asthma symptoms, which, in turn, results in a suboptimal course of disease. In this research focus on two research questions: (1) To which degree does...

Background: Effective disease self-management lowers asthma’s burden of disease for both individual patients and health care systems. In principle, mobile health (mHealth) apps could enable effective asthma self-management interventions that improve a patient’s quality of life while simultaneously reducing the overall treatment costs for health car...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The personal and financial burden of asthma highly depends on a patient's disease self-management skill. Scalable mHealth apps, designed to empower patients, have the potential to play a crucial role in asthma disease management. However, the actual clinical efficacy of mHealth asthma apps is poorly understood due to the lack of both methodological...

Asthma, diabetes, hypertension, or major depression are non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and impose a major burden on global health. Stress is linked to both the causes and consequences of NCDs and it has been shown that biofeedback-based breathing trainings (BBTs) are effective in coping with stress. Here, diaphragmatic breathing, i.e. deep abdomi...

MobileCoach, an open source behavioral intervention platform, has been developed to provide health professionals with an authoring tool to design evidence-based, scalable and low-cost digital health interventions (DHI). Its potential meets the lack in resources and capacity of health care systems to provide DHI for the treatment of noncommunicable...

A large number of pedestrians and cyclists regularly ignore the traffic lights to cross the road illegally. In a recent analysis, illegal road crossing behavior has been shown to be enhanced in the presence of incongruent stimulus configurations. Pedestrians and cyclists are more likely to cross against a red light when exposed to an irrelevant con...
