Cough is a key symptom of TB and many other respiratory conditions. This multi-country study shows that people with TB cough a lot more often than people with other respiratory conditions and cough could be used as digital biomarker for TB diagnosis and treatment response monitoring.
We carried out a study evaluating potential uses of an AI-based cough detection system in northern Spain. Among enrolled participants there was a 71 year-old female with a history of smoking 20-40 cigarettes/day between ages 18 to 36, and from age 67 to present. Past medical history revealed chronic non-productive coug
Cough is one of the most common reasons that individuals seek health care, and yet it is largely unmeasured in clinical medicine and practice.
Validated cough assessment could support public health programs at various stages of the TB care cascade.
Hyfe Cough Tracker app showed a very high correlation between the cough rate measured by Hyfe and that of human annotators (Pearson correlation of 0.968).
Longitudinal Passive Cough Monitoring and Its Implications for Detecting Changes in Clinical Status. 616 participants were monitored for an aggregated duration of over 9 person-years and registered 62 325 coughs. This empiric analysis found that an individual's cough patterns are stochastic, following a...
Long coronavirus disease (COVID) refers to an array of variable and fluctuating symptoms experienced after acute illness, with signs and symptoms that persist for 8–12 weeks and are not otherwise explicable. Cough is the most common symptom of acute COVID-19, but cough may persist in some individuals for weeks...
Artificial intelligence systems can detect changes in cough frequency that temporarily correlate with the onset of clinical disease at the individual level. A correlation with population-level COVID-19 incidence (or other respiratory conditions) could be achieved with better compliance with monitoring.
