Meet Helfie's Respiratory AI:
Just cough into your mobile...
and answer a few questions.
It's that easy.
Helfie's Respiratory AI (RAI) analyses your cough, responses to questions and associated symptoms for signs of Bronchitis, in seconds.
In Brief Bronchitis is a respiratory disease that causes inflammation of the bronchial tubes, the airways that carry air to the lungs. It is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection, and can also be triggered by environmental factors such as air pollution. Symptoms of bronchitis include coughing, chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, and fever.
Why Check? In most cases, bronchitis is a mild illness that goes away on its own within a few days to a week, but in severe cases, it can lead to pneumonia or other complications.
We check your lung health too.
RAI assesses your lung health while analysing your cough for Bronchitis.
Why? Bronchitis is a respiratory condition that can cause inflammation and irritation of the airways in the lungs, leading to symptoms such as cough, chest discomfort, and difficulty breathing. Checking lung health when checking for bronchitis is important because the condition primarily affects the respiratory system, specifically the bronchial tubes in the lungs. Monitoring lung health can help identify any changes in lung function and determine the severity of bronchitis, which can guide treatment decisions and help prevent complications. Additionally, checking lung health can help identify any underlying conditions or risk factors that may contribute to the development of bronchitis, such as smoking or exposure to pollutants, and inform strategies for managing these factors.
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.
