What is the Respiratory Symptoms Score?

The Respiratory Symptoms Score serves as a comprehensive risk assessment, ranging from 1 to 100, designed to evaluate the presence and severity of respiratory symptoms. This tailored score reflects the resemblance of vocal characteristics observed in individuals with various respiratory conditions. Symptoms contributing to the Respiratory Symptoms Score include shortness of breath, cough, chest tightness, or pain.

The Significance of the Respiratory Symptoms Score

The Respiratory Symptoms Score plays a crucial role in the early detection and monitoring of respiratory symptoms associated with a spectrum of conditions such as asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Covid-19, and other chronic airway disorders. By highlighting potential risks and variations in vocal patterns, this score aids in proactive management and timely intervention.

Understanding the Optimal Range

The optimal range for the Respiratory Symptoms Score is classified as follows:

  • Low risk: 0-64
  • High risk: 65-100

How does YOUTH measure your Respiratory Symptoms Score?

YOUTH's advanced AI technology compares the voice patterns captured in a 30-second voice recording with those prevalent in individuals exhibiting early signs or severe manifestations of respiratory conditions. The alignment of voice patterns with those characteristic of respiratory symptoms contributes to the determination of your personalized risk score.

Secret Hack:

Engage in a 5-minute breathing exercise to enhance lung capacity. Focus on holding your breath for 7 seconds and exhaling for 8 seconds, contracting your abdominal muscles to facilitate complete exhalation. Repeat this exercise five times to promote respiratory well-being.

General Tips:

  • Refrain from smoking to prevent the onset of respiratory complications.
  • Incorporate at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise into your routine on a minimum of 5 days per week to bolster respiratory fitness.
  • Enhance indoor air quality by opening windows to facilitate air circulation and ventilation.
  • Prioritize regular lung checkups to ensure early detection and timely management of any emerging respiratory concerns.

By adhering to these essential recommendations and maintaining a proactive approach to respiratory health, you can effectively manage and mitigate potential risks, fostering a healthier and more robust respiratory system.
