Saving Lives One Breath At A Time

To significantly reduce the number of children dying from asthma, a much more sophisticated technology is needed. We are proposing an Asthma Sensor Monitoring System that can detect traces of special gases that are found in the breath of children suffering from asthma. A biomedical sensor will transmit information to a detector and the information will then be sent through a wireless network to a child’s caregiver. The caregiver can then determine what actions are necessary to prevent the child from experiencing an asthma attack.  Scroll down to view different components of the ASMS.
