    Abstract

    Pediatric asthma is one of the most common chronic disease in childhood. Treatment is focused on the control of asthma symptoms, enabling patients to fully participate in daily life. However, children’s expression of asthma symptoms is often difficult to assess and interpret. Additionally, accurate monitoring of pediatric asthma is challenging as symptoms are episodic and therefore often absent during outpatient evaluation. These aspects hamper the treatment of asthma and urge the development of a monitoring tool that can signal worsening of asthma control and offer an opportunity to anticipate the waves of asthma. Therefore, this study aimed to discover relevant home-monitoring parameters for asthma control in children using wearable technology.
