Helfie's Respiratory AI (RAI) analyses your cough and any symptoms for signs of Covid, in seconds.
In Brief COVID-19 is a highly infectious respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It spreads mainly through respiratory droplets when an infected person talks, coughs, or sneezes, or by touching a surface contaminated with the virus and then touching the mouth, nose, or eyes. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, and congestion or runny nose. The severity of the illness can range from mild to severe, and in some cases, it can be fatal, especially in older adults or people with underlying health conditions.
Why Check? It is important to check for COVID-19 because it is a highly contagious disease that can spread rapidly through communities, and it can cause severe illness, hospitalization, and even death, especially in vulnerable populations such as older adults or people with underlying health conditions. Early detection and diagnosis of COVID-19 through screening can help to identify infected individuals and prevent further spread of the virus. Screening also helps healthcare professionals to isolate infected individuals, provide appropriate treatment, and monitor their health status. It can also help public health officials to track the spread of the disease, identify hotspots, and implement control measures to prevent further transmission. In addition, testing is important for individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19 but have not yet developed symptoms. Such individuals can still spread the virus to others, and early detection through testing can help to prevent further transmission. Overall, checking for COVID-19 is critical to protect individuals, communities, and public health, and to help control the spread of the disease.
We check your lung health too.
RAI assesses your lung health while analyzing your cough for Covid.
Why? Checking for lung health is important when screening for COVID-19 because COVID-19 primarily affects the respiratory system and can cause damage to the lungs. In severe cases, COVID-19 can lead to pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and even death. By checking the health of the lungs, healthcare professionals can monitor any changes in lung function and quickly detect any complications. This is especially important for those who are at higher risk for severe COVID-19, such as older adults and individuals with underlying medical conditions like asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Early detection and monitoring of any lung damage caused by COVID-19 can lead to better treatment outcomes and improve the chances of recovery.
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 indicates whether it thinks the condition of your lungs is Good, Medium or Poor.
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 sound like they are able to effectively 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: Lungs classified as medium or poor health will sound to Helfie AI like they 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.
