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 >>

Does Chest Attachment of an Automated Respiratory Rate Monitor Influence the Actual Respiratory Rate in Children Under Five?

Daniel Helldén, Kevin Baker, Tedila Habte, Esey Batisso, Nicola Orsini, Karin Källander, Tobias Alfvén,

Pneumonia is one of the leading causes of death in children under 5 years worldwide. In resource-limited settings, WHO recommendations state that pneumonia can be presumptively diagnosed through the presence of cough and/or difficult breathing and a respiratory rate (RR) that is higher than age-specific cutoffs. As a new diagnostic ... 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 >>

Performance of Four Respiratory Rate Counters to Support Community Health Workers to Detect the Symptoms of Pneumonia in Children in Low Resource Settings: A Prospective, Multicentre, Hospital-Based, Single-Blinded, Comparative Trial.

Kevin Baker, Tobias Alfvén, Akasiima Mucunguzi, Alexandra Wharton-Smith, Emily Dantzer, Tedila Habte, Lena Matata, Diana Nanyumba, Morris Okwir, Monica Posada, Anteneh Sebsibe, Jill Nicholson, Madeleine Marasciulo, Rasa Izadnegahdar, Max Petzold, Karin Källander,

Background:Pneumonia is one of the leading causes of death in children under-five globally. The current diagnostic criteria for pneumonia are based on increased respiratory rate (RR) or chest in-drawing in children with cough and/or difficulty breathing. Accurately counting RR is difficult for community health workers (CHWs). Current RR counting devices ... Read more >>

Kevin Baker, Mucunguzi Akasiima, Alexandra Wharton-Smith, Tedila Habte, Lena Matata, Diana Nanyumba, Morris Okwir, Anteneh Sebsibe, Madeleine Marasciulo, Max Petzold, Karin Källander,

BACKGROUND:Pneumonia is one of the leading causes of death in children aged under 5 years in both sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. The current diagnostic criterion for pneumonia is based on the increased respiratory rate (RR) in children with cough or difficulty breathing. Low oxygen saturation, measured using pulse oximeters, ... Read more >>

Childhood pneumonia diagnostics: community health workers' and national stakeholders' differing perspectives of new and existing aids.

Hollie Spence, Kevin Baker, Alexandra Wharton-Smith, Akasiima Mucunguzi, Lena Matata, Tedila Habte, Diana Nanyumba, Anteneh Sebsibe, Thol Thany, Karin Källander,

BACKGROUND:Pneumonia heavily contributes to global under-five mortality. Many countries use community case management to detect and treat childhood pneumonia. Community health workers (CHWs) have limited tools to help them assess signs of pneumonia. New respiratory rate (RR) counting devices and pulse oximeters are being considered for this purpose. OBJECTIVE:To explore ... Read more >>

BACKGROUND:Scale-up of malaria interventions seems to have contributed to a decline in the disease but other factors may also have had some role. Understanding changes in transmission and determinant factors will help to adapt control strategies accordingly. METHODS:Four sites in Ethiopia and Uganda were set up to monitor epidemiological changes ... Read more >>

A stitch in time: a cross-sectional survey looking at long lasting insecticide-treated bed net ownership, utilization and attrition in SNNPR, Ethiopia.

Esey Batisso, Tedila Habte, Gezahegn Tesfaye, Dawit Getachew, Agonafer Tekalegne, Albert Kilian, Betty Mpeka, Caroline Lynch,

BACKGROUND: Since 2002/03, an estimated 4.7 million nets have been distributed in the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region (SNNPR) among an at risk population of approximately 10 million people. Evidence from the region suggests that large-scale net ownership rapidly increased over a relatively short period of time. However, little ... Read more >>
