Do I Wheeze? Utilizing respiratory sound recordings to develop an algorithm for detecting wheeze

 

The treatments for pneumonia and wheeze are very different. The ability to accurately detect wheeze in children will allow us to reduce the use of antibiotics in children who
do not have pneumonia. In this stury we will use audio (sound) recordings from a child’s chest to develop an automatic method for differentiating children with and without wheeze.pilot study will help us to collect information during anesthesia to improve the way the computer adjusts the level of anesthesia in adults. This study will provide important information about the safe use of remifentanil and propofol when using a computer to control anesthesia.

Who can participate in this study?

  • In order to participate in the study, you must be under the age of 17 and fall into either one of two categories: 1) children with unobstructed breathing, or 2) children who present with clinical signs of wheeze.

Status?

  • Actively recruting subjects.
