Noninvasive test may predict asthma attacks in children

A new technology may help to non-invasively analyse lung sounds in children and infants at risk of an asthma attack.

In a study of 70 severely asthmatic children, the approach was useful for predicting attack symptoms and for identifying asymptomatic children at high risk for an asthma attack.

The results are published in Respirology.
