Meet Helfie's Asthma AI:
Just cough into your mobile...
and answer a few questions.
It's that easy.
Helfie's Respiratory AI (RAI) analyses your cough and associated symptoms, checking for signs of Asthma in seconds.
In Brief Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to breathing difficulties. Common symptoms include wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing, especially at night or early morning. Asthma can be triggered by various factors, such as allergies, air pollution, and physical activity.
Why Check? Checking for asthma is important because early diagnosis and treatment can help control the disease and prevent severe asthma attacks. Early detection of worsening symptoms: Asthma symptoms can worsen over time, and early detection of these changes can allow for prompt treatment and intervention to prevent serious exacerbations.
We check your lung health too.
RAI assesses your lung health while analyzing your cough for Asthma.
Why? When checking someone for asthma, it is important to check their lung health because asthma is a respiratory condition that affects the airways in the lungs. Asthma causes inflammation and narrowing of the airways, making it difficult to breathe. Checking lung health can help determine if the individual has any underlying respiratory conditions that may be contributing to their asthma symptoms or affecting their lung function. It can also help identify any lung damage or disease that may require further treatment or management. Overall, checking lung health is an important aspect of assessing for signs of asthma.
In Brief Lung health refers to the overall health and functioning of the lungs, which are a vital organ responsible for breathing and oxygen exchange in the body. Good lung health is important for maintaining overall health and wellbeing. Helfie AI assesses your lung health and classifies the condition of your lungs as being in Good, Medium or Poor health.
Good Health: Lungs classified as being in good health sound to Helfie AI like they are functioning well and efficiently. This means that the lungs are able effectively to inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide, and are not hindered by any obstructions, restrictions, or constrictions. Individuals with healthy lungs should be able to participate in physical activities without experiencing shortness of breath or wheezing.
Below Average to Poor Health: Medium to Poor Health: Lungs rated as medium or poor health will feature some or all of the following characteristics. Obstructed Lungs: This refers to a condition where the airways in the lungs are partially or completely blocked, making it difficult to breathe. Obstructive lung diseases, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), fall into this category. Obstructed lungs can indicate a serious impairment of lung function and can be a sign of more advanced lung disease. Restricted Lungs: This refers to a condition where the lung tissue itself is unable to expand fully, making it difficult to take deep breaths. This can be caused by several factors, including scarring of the lung tissue (as in interstitial lung disease) or weakness of the respiratory muscles. Restricted lungs can lead to decreased lung function and shortness of breath. Constricted Lungs: This refers to a condition where the airways in the lungs are narrowed, making it difficult for air to pass through. This can be caused by several factors, including inflammation, muscle spasms, or excess mucus production. Constricted lungs can be a sign of asthma or other respiratory conditions.
