Wheezometer™ Exploratory (WM) Field Study

2014-07-24 14:00:45 | BioPortfolio


Karmel Sonix Ltd has developed the Personal WheezoMeter a hand-held pulmonary sounds analyzer that utilizes contact sensors to acquire, amplify, filter, record and quantify the presence of wheezing. When used to monitor conditions such as asthma, this device should be used under the direction of a physician or licensed healthcare professional. The device is intended for use with pediatric and adult patients in both home and clinical settings.

The purpose of the study is to determine whether Wz% and change in Wz% correlate with symptoms and change in symptoms at least as well as FEV1 and change in FEV1.0. Additional information to be obtained from the study will be to determine whether there is a symptom threshold at which a patient seeks rescue medications and if so, to determine the value of Wz% and FEV1.0 at this point (Wz%, FEV1.0 thresholds). The study will also provide information on the within patient and whole group correlations between Wz% and FEV.

Age-related Correlates of Treatment for Late-acquired Sounds

Late-acquired sounds, such as /r/ are difficult to learn and many children experience persistent errors on these sounds. The purpose of the present study is to determine whether treating t...

Cortical tracking of multiple streams outside the focus of attention in naturalistic auditory scenes.

In everyday life, we process mixtures of a variety of sounds. This processing involves the segregation of auditory input and the attentive selection of the stream that is most relevant to current goal...

Change detection in complex auditory scenes is predicted by auditory memory, pitch perception, and years of musical training.

Our world is a sonically busy place and we use both acoustic information and experience-based knowledge to make sense of the sounds arriving at our ears. The knowledge we gain through experience has t...

A description of externally recorded womb sounds in human subjects during gestation.

Reducing environmental noise benefits premature infants in neonatal intensive care units (NICU), but excessive reduction may lead to sensory deprivation, compromising development. Instead of minimal n...

Decoding natural scenes based on sounds of objects within scenes using multivariate pattern analysis.

Scene recognition plays an important role in spatial navigation and scene classification. It remains unknown whether the occipitotemporal cortex could represent the semantic association between the sc...

Effect of pile-driving sounds on harbor seal (Phoca vitulina) hearing.

Seals exposed to intense sounds may suffer hearing loss. After exposure to playbacks of broadband pile-driving sounds, the temporary hearing threshold shift (TTS) of two harbor seals was quantified at...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Noises, normal and abnormal, heard on auscultation over any part of the RESPIRATORY TRACT.

The sounds heard over the cardiac region produced by the functioning of the heart. There are four distinct sounds: the first occurs at the beginning of SYSTOLE and is heard as a "lubb" sound; the second is produced by the closing of the AORTIC VALVE and PULMONARY VALVE and is heard as a "dupp" sound; the third is produced by vibrations of the ventricular walls when suddenly distended by the rush of blood from the HEART ATRIA; and the fourth is produced by atrial contraction and ventricular filling.

Congenital vascular malformation in which the AORTA arch and its branches encircle the TRACHEA and ESOPHAGUS. Signs and symptoms include DYSPNEA; RESPIRATORY SOUNDS, especially with eating, DYSPHAGIA, persistent cough, and GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX or may be asymptomatic. Two most common types are double aortic arch and right aortic arch. It may be associated with other anomalies (e.g., DIGEORGE SYNDROME).

A mutant strain of TRANSMISSIBLE GASTROENTERITIS VIRUS causing mild or subclinical respiratory infections in young SWINE. It may also play a role in post-weaning porcine respiratory disease complex, especially when combined with other respiratory agents.

Respiratory system manifestations of diseases of the respiratory tract or of other organs.
