Can mobile health technology monitor/ track spirometry and detect acute decompensation in childhood asthma?

Acute exacerbation accounts for frequent and recurrent ER visits in children with asthma. Genetic susceptibility and interaction with factors such as infection/inflammation, exposure to environmental pollutants may contribute to acute decompensation. Predictive modeling using multiple data points including genetic variants, environmental exposure, and self monitored spirometry may help with early detection and intervention which will lead to reduced ER visits.
