Determining the Agreement Between an Automated Respiratory Rate Counter and a Reference Standard for Detecting Symptoms of Pneumonia in Children: Protocol for a Cross-Sectional Study in Ethiopia.

Charlotte Ward, Kevin Baker, Sarah Marks, Dawit Getachew, Tedila Habte, Cindy McWhorter, Paul Labarre, Jonathan Howard-Brand, Nathan P Miller, Hayalnesh Tarekegn, Solomie Jebessa Deribessa, Max Petzold, Karin Kallander,

BACKGROUND:Acute respiratory infections (ARIs), primarily pneumonia, are the leading infectious cause of under-5 mortality worldwide. Manually counting respiratory rate (RR) for 60 seconds using an ARI timer is commonly practiced by community health workers to detect fast breathing, an important sign of pneumonia. However, correctly counting breaths manually and classifying ... Read more >>

Automated Respiratory Rate Counter to Assess Children for Symptoms of Pneumonia: Protocol for Cross-Sectional Usability and Acceptability Studies in Ethiopia and Nepal.

Kevin Baker, Alice Maurel, Charlotte Ward, Dawit Getachew, Tedila Habte, Cindy McWhorter, Paul LaBarre, Jonas Karlström, Max Petzold, Karin Källander,

BACKGROUND:Manually counting a child's respiratory rate (RR) for 60 seconds using an acute respiratory infection timer is the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended method for detecting fast breathing as a sign of pneumonia. However, counting the RR is challenging and misclassification of an observed rate is common, often leading to ... Read more >>

Usability and acceptability of an automated respiratory rate counter to assess childhood pneumonia in Nepal.

Karin Källander, Charlotte Ward, Helen Smith, Radheshyam Bhattarai, Ashish Kc, Deepak Timsina, Bikash Lamichhane, Alice Maurel, Parashu Ram Shrestha, Sushil Baral, Cindy McWhorter, Paul LaBarre, Monica Anna de Cola, Kevin Baker,

AIM:Pneumonia is the leading cause of child death after the neonatal period, resulting from late care seeking and inappropriate treatment. Diagnosis involves counting respiratory rate (RR); however, RR counting remains challenging for health workers and miscounting, and misclassification of RR is common. We evaluated the usability of a new automated ... Read more >>

Usability and acceptability of an automated respiratory rate counter to assess children for symptoms of pneumonia: A cross-sectional study in Ethiopia.

Charlotte Ward, Kevin Baker, Helen Smith, Alice Maurel, Dawit Getachew, Tedila Habte, Cindy McWhorter, Paul LaBarre, Jonas Karlstrom, Jim Black, Quique Bassat, Agazi Ameha, Abraham Tariku, Max Petzold, Karin Källander,

AIM:Manually counting respiratory rate (RR) is commonly practiced by community health workers to detect fast breathing, an important sign of childhood pneumonia. Correctly counting and classifying breaths manually is challenging, often leading to inappropriate treatment. This study aimed to determine the usability of a new automated RR counter (ChARM) by health ... Read more >>
