Using breakthrough technology developed by leading respiratory specialists, AirSonea® is a 'digital stethoscope' and smartphone app that accurately records breath sounds to detect and measure wheeze. Wheezing results from a narrowing of the airways and typically indicates some difficulty breathing.*
Convenient and easy to use, the AirSonea sensor is held at the trachea (windpipe) during 30 seconds of normal breathing. The app records and analyses the breathing sounds and returns a WheezeRATE™, a measurement of the extent of wheezing over the duration.
WheezeRATE history is stored in the smartphone and synced to the Cloud for review and secure sharing with family and healthcare professionals.
Sharing this objective data with your doctor or other healthcare professionals can help in the evaluation of WheezeRATE trends.
Self-monitoring with AirSonea eliminates the guesswork and increases awareness and knowledge of how wheezing affects your overall feeling of wellness.
*There are a number of possible causes of wheezing. Work with your doctor for an accurate diagnosis.
Charge your AirSonea by inserting the USB cable provided into the USB port at the bottom of the device. Red LED turns off when fully charged. Charging can take up to 4 hours. Sensor head should be closed.
To pair the device, you will need to navigate to the Bluetooth® settings on your smartphone.
Turn on your AirSonea by sliding the Power Slide Switch to ON. The LED will be solid blue. Avoid talking and other loud noises.
Calibrate your AirSonea sensor and smartphone’s microphone by holding the two devices close to each other.
Place the AirSonea sensor directly on your windpipe (trachea). Proper placement is important. Press the Record button on the app. Breathe normally for about 30 seconds. The app will tell you if it can’t detect your breathing or there’s too much noise.
When the measurement is complete, follow the prompts and remove the device from your neck. Your WheezeRATE measurement will be displayed on your smartphone screen after analysis.
