Smartwatch Monitoring of COPD Symptoms


Trial Objective

Smartwatch Monitoring of COPD SymptomsThe purpose of this study is to identify risk factors that are predictive of COPD exacerbations. Participants will be provided a smartwatch that has sensors to monitor their daily activity, heart rate and other physical attributes. They will need to fill out a daily survey asking about their respiratory symptoms. Results from this study will help researchers develop a system to detect COPD exacerbations using smartwatches. This is a remote study; no clinic visits required.
