Abstract

Asthma is a disease that affects over 300 million people worldwide and is disproportionately observed in the developing world where air pollution is sometimes more prevalent. This disease can range in severity, causing the airways of the lungs to constrict and inflame, and no known therapies can completely and permanently ameliorate the disease's effects on the respiratory system. Doctors can, however, treat most chronic and acute asthma symptoms with medication regimens. It is therefore important to develop accurate devices to monitor the disease symptoms so doctors can take appropriate steps to treat the patient with proper medication.
